Make It the Best of Times
By Tom Herrin
Trials come in all shapes and sizes. The world is currently in the most difficult and trying times anyone can remember. It can be overwhelming and full of unknowns. In such times, it may be best to identify what anyone can actually take charge of. If they fail to do so, they may easily be overcome and lose a critical battle. One of the few things anyone can have control over, in times such as this, is managing their own life within the confines given. In other words, if they cannot go outdoors, they can determine what kind of activities they can do indoors. Even if someone lives in a small apartment, they may be able to turn it into a place in which they can develop themselves physically and mentally.
Grow Where You Are Planted
Everyone has different circumstances. Some may live alone while others live in a crowd. Either way, it is possible to interact effectively. Whether it is by electronic media or in person, there is no time like now to challenge one another to be better. For those who are living alone, it is possible to connect with others. With today's technology, people can connect with others as if they were in the same room. Taking advantage of some quality time each day can give them something to look forward to as they culminate daily activities. It can be a great opportunity to share and learn from each other. For those in the same room, choosing to spend a little time together can accomplish the same thing. They may gain a greater understanding of one another. This always leads to better communication.
Remember to Make Time for Exercise
Particularly when people are shut in, daily activity is a critical part in maintaining good physical and emotional health. It keeps them from going nuts. This can also be done with others in person or on electronic devices. It can actually be a fun challenge to spend some time with others in this way. No one has to feel insecure about what they can or cannot do while they exercise and interact at the same time.
When we have difficult circumstances, it may be a great time to establish goals. If we set some that are realistic, we may be able to measure our progress daily or weekly. Keeping a written chart may help us to see that we are getting somewhere. If we make progress in one area, we may find that we can work on another one. Let us continue to move forward in whatever way we can.
