Where would you be at this time if not for the pandemic? Perhaps like everyone else, you wish you were somewhere else, far from where you are today. Like many, you have had to cancel plans until the quarantine, and all other travel orders have been lifted if they’ve been lifted at all in your area.
It is quite hard to keep the hope of life amidst this pandemic. The uncertainty that it brings about seems like something that came out straight from your favorite apocalypse movie. And yet, it is something real. The threat is real, and it has put your life and the lives of those you love at significant risk.
Who would have thought that this pandemic would put everything on hold? Who would have thought it would create the kind of chaos that people would start to wonder how to find hope?
The key to finding hope in this difficult time is to learn how to not lose hope. You need to tell yourself that good days will come. Things may not go back to how they were, but it doesn’t mean that things won’t be good.
“I lost hope in life”—this is something you may be thinking, and that’s okay. But this life still gives you many reasons to be thankful for. They may not always be what you asked for, but they is something worthy of your gratitude.
Where do you begin in this journey to keeping hope alive? Here are some tips you might want to try:
The pandemic has revealed very clearly and aggressively that life is short. In a split second, a virus can end your life without you even knowing that you have it. And before you realize what is wrong, the virus has already done damage to your body.
But if you look at the negative side of things all the time, you will never really appreciate the beauty that this life has to offer. Turn to the other side and look at the positive aspects of having to go through this pandemic and survive.
If you can do this, your experience won’t be about the hardships or struggles you have to go through. Rather, your narrative will be about finding hope amid the pandemic. You will be the epitome of strength and wisdom. Despite all the negativity in the world, you will find it in you to encourage people to keep hoping.
While a solution may not be available yet, there are still good things to be thankful for. The first one on the list is your life.
What does it mean to practice mindfulness? It is all about living in the moment. It is about teaching yourself to live your life as it happens.
You might not notice it, but you spend every waking hour doing only two things: worrying about the future and feeling disappointed about the past. These two things may be the ones that hinder you from seeing the light amid everything that is happening in the world.
Practice mindfulness and live every day as they come. You don’t have to embrace life with open arms all the time, but you can always choose to see the beautiful things that it has to offer. The present will remind you of what you think and how you feel. Both can have their impact on your life. Live today and experience life as it unfolds. One day, when you look back, you will realize how truly lucky you are for being alive.
Take a moment to spend some time with yourself, your emotions, and your thoughts.
When you meditate on what is happening now, you will see that it is so much you can do to improve your life. Don’t let the pandemic stop you from doing the things that you love. This is all about you not wanting to do things because you are too afraid.
But meditation is all you need to free yourself from all the fear. Meditation will help you tap into your core to allow yourself to find inner peace. Through constant practice, you will be able to see how much life has to offer despite the current world health situation.
What can you do when you have to stay in your house all day? There is so much you can do! In reality, you have always wanted to spend more time at home, and now the pandemic has allowed you to.
Keep yourself busy. That will give you all the hope that you need to surpass the challenges of the pandemic. You can do gardening and grow your own food. Or you could engage in an activity using your hands like knitting or crocheting.
Maybe you can go back to reading the books you started reading years ago. All these things can be done in the comfort of your own home during this difficult time. You’ll be surprised to see how much these activities take your time and take your mind off your worries.
If there is one thing that this pandemic has taught everyone, it would be to practice gratitude at all times. At this time, when everyone seems like they are stuck where they are, it is best to spend time thinking about how else you can make your life better.
Finding hope may seem like a challenge at this time, but it is not impossible. If only you looked closer, you would see that hope comes from deep within.
After all, there is nothing more important at this point than your life. The least you can do is be grateful for your life and everything you can do with it.
