Dos and don’ts for a better day

As we near the end of alert level 4, here are a few do’s and don’ts to keep you going:

Do:

  • Start your day by taking 2 minutes to review your plan
  • Then remind yourself what you’ve got rather than the things you need
  • Tell your family that you love them and that you’ve got it covered
  • Phone your manager and ask them what more you can do to help the company
  • Talk to two friends or colleagues in need and tell them that you are thinking of them
  • Eat well
  • Exercise for 30 minutes
  • Read something useful
  • Assess your contribution
  • Appreciate you’re alive
  • Relax for a bit
  • And go to bed on time

Don’t:

  • Be scared about the future – instead, think about what you can do to make it better
  • Yell at the family for getting in the way – instead, tell them you love them but need to concentrate on your role and adding value to others  
  • Question your relevance or self-worth – instead be relevant to those you’re supporting
  • Distance yourself from others – other than in the physical
  • Eat rubbish – all the time
  • Lie on the couch – all day
  • Get consumed by the news or social media
  • Beat yourself up for feeling out of sorts
  • Berate your pets or neighbours  
  • Cause a mess
  • Place unnecessary demands on the family
  • Hog the remote
  • Sneeze in public
  • Or be unpleasant when you know there’s an alternative
