Crisis – daily writing prompt
So imagine everything in your world is falling apart (or maybe for some of us, this is a sad reality 😢).
Let’s say a crisis could be losing your job, an unexpected breakup, or a mega-earthquake like in the movie San Andreas with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (I loved that movie btw. Ratings weren’t amazing but who cares, the Rock is a #boss)
I asked my coworker for some nuggets of wisdom in these scenarios, and here’s what he would advise:
-Try not to handle everything at once, take it one step at a time.
-Handle the issues in a queue, you’ll stress out if you try to do it all at once.
-Think objectively, focus on the goal rather than the means. Easier said than done since these problems are subjective, but stepping back can help provide some clarity.
-Focus on the things that make you happy. Be around friends and reconnect with people.
-Redirect your energy and use your time constructively. Find new hobbies, stay active, keep your mind occupied. In a crisis, the worst place to be is alone with your thoughts.
