Take Care of Your Body
Exercise is great, but mindful breathing can also do wonders. Randy recommends the 4-4-6 breathing exercise: Breath in for 4, hold for 4, and breathe out for a count of 6.
Take Care of Your Mind
Avoid an overabundance of news and updates. With the overload of information coming in on a daily and sometimes hourly basis, it’s important to control the intake in order to control the impact it can have on your brain.
Keep Connections Strong
We may not be able to see our peers, mentors, friends and family as often as we used to, but that doesn’t mean our connections should be any less strong. Make an effort to call extra, send a “checking in” text, or even arrange a group call on Zoom. Human connection is a pillar of sustainable happiness after all.
