COVID19—How to handle destructive moods

Ever feel that trying to handle all the stress of this pandemic is just is too hard? That you can’t go on? When crippled by a destructive mood, although it may seem counterintuitive, consider doing…nothing!

All too often we go to battle with our negative, spiraling thoughts, which only adds fuel to the dark mood. Instead, if you find yourself in a slump of negativity don’t participate in insecurity’s dance. Stop the ruminative runaway train of worry-thoughts and don’t resist–simply yield. Just allow yourself to ride out the mood with the understanding and conviction that, ‘this too shall pass.’ Do this and you’ll be reducing psychological friction while ensuring that you’re not a victim of your mood. Bottom line: sometimes doing nothing, is doing something.
