Adjusting to the new normal is definitely easier than done. The new normal is constantly changing and our days are full of uncertainty.
Everything from school to work to home life is like something we’ve never experienced before. When life is so uncertain, it’s normal to experience stress, exhaustion or burnout.

Accept That Life is Different Right Now:
It’s no secret that 2020 has been far different than 2019, and so many things that used to be easy, now feel so hard.
Remember, accepting a tough situation does not mean you are giving up. It simply means you are accepting reality instead of fighting it.
Do What You Love:
When life gets busy, sometimes we can forget to take the time to do what we love. Even though we may not be able to go to restaurants or spend time with friends, that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun at home.
Instead of attending your favourite restaurant on Friday night, you can order takeout and dress up.
Instead of going out with your friends on Saturday night, you can have a group zoom call.
It may not be the exact same, but it is much better than nothing.
Build a Resilience Bank Account:
You are so much more resilient than you give yourself credit for. You just may not know it yet.
It is never too late to start implementing resilience-building habits. Getting enough sleep, eating right, exercising and practicing compassion are all great places to start.
You also don’t have to make significant changes in one day. You can start slow and work your way up. Starting slowly is far better than not starting at all. Learn More
