“I understand that it’s hard for everyone, but one cannot give in to emotions… we’ll have to draw lessons from the current crisis and now we’ll have to work on overcoming it.” – Boris Yeltsin

As much as there are physical and economic consequences of COVID19, there are also Mental and emotional consequences. While this is something most people especially Africans don’t like to talk about, it has to be addressed. A healthy mind will help a healthy body function optimally and either of the two cannot exist independently.

As a result of this, wouldn’t it be better to make the best out of this situation? How about staying isolated with a sense of purpose, enjoying peace and coming out healthy and empowered

DAY 8 – Write 20 Things You Are Grateful For.

Have you ever lost something that seemed so trivial only to realize that it was really important? The error many of us make is not being grateful for the things we have or possess till it is lost. 

We forget that the food we eat, the air we breathe, the loved ones in our lives, the couch we sit on, our favorite show, even our little toe add to our daily lives one way or the other. 

These things seem regular but wait till you’re told that little toe must be cut off or that loved one will travel miles away forever then you begin to realize you weren’t appreciative of it. 

“Gratitude is a powerful catalyst for happiness” – Amy Collette.

Gratitude has no limits. We should be grateful for any and everything – even the flame that comes up in a matchstick; without it you won’t cook your meal and you’d be hungry and frustrated. Do you see the cycle? Nothing is too silly for you to be grateful. 

It lifts the spirit and has often being prescribed for when in sour moods. It attracts blessings and causes you to live in content of the present. 

Every religion preaches on gratitude. It has been hoarded greatly for generations as the secret ingredient to spice life. 

So, start now, take a pen and a paper, write down 20 things you’re grateful for (it can go beyond 20). From your body parts, to life experiences, possessions and so on. Do not limit yourself. Be grateful for the good in every bad situation. Be grateful for even the bad situations for they’d turn into good. Don’t just scribble. FEEL grateful. It must be a feeling. It is an emotion. 

Do this and be mentally liberated.
