Watch our video, here: Resilience and Gaining Altitude
Research facilities around the world have for years been examining the connection between positive thinking and health and even the connection between positive thinking and the mitigation of disease.
Johns Hopkins Medicine, hopkins.org, describes resiliency as “the ability to adapt to stressful and/or negative situations and losses”.
Living in the COVID-19 period can certainly be stressful.
Johns Hopkins expands on methods to build resiliency with these ideas:
- Maintain good relationships with family and friends.
- Accept that change is a part of life.
- Take action on problems rather than just hoping they disappear or waiting for them to resolve themselves.
The Maddox Law Firm is calling our people every day to check in. These aren’t legal calls; they’re relationship calls. We want to encourage everyone to increase the frequency and duration of your calls and communications with family and friends.
And yes, life is defined by change. Change of every type and magnitude. COVID-19 is a change, whose immediate effects on our day-to-day lives will ultimately be seen as temporary. And, there may be changes to which we will adapt and make a part of our success in every category.
As for the problems caused by COVID-19, like any other problem, there is relief not just in finding a solution, but working on the problem itself. We have problems and complications now in our work and personal lives. We have to exercise imagination and creativity, compassion and patience to solve those problems.
