The best way to adapt to our stressful times

Telling yourself, “I’m going to do that,” may make you feel good, but not as good as you’re going to feel when you say, “I did it!” Today, make it a point to take charge of your life. In these stressful COVID19 days, focus on what you have control over and what you can change for the better (what you eat, how you spend your time, chores to attend to, etc.). Considering the current state of affairs, you probably need to re-define what it means to have a good day. Keep in mind that adapting to current circumstances is far better then resisting. Why? Because resistance promotes psychological friction, a.k.a., stress. The last thing any of us needs is more stress.
