In this time of COVID-19 related restrictions on social gatherings and constantly changing news about case rates and vaccines, it's easy to feel anxious, overwhelmed, and isolated. This is especially true when you're dealing with a medical condition like MCI that also has a TON of unknowns. Back in April and May, starting here and ending here, we posted a series about developing a resiliency roadmap to build and sustain resiliency in this crazy time. Today, we have a few more tools to suggest for that toolkit.
It can feel like simply too much to try and make big changes toward better wellness in a time like this. But what about selecting a few "micro-behaviors" that only take a few minutes and are easy to do? The Mayo Clinic Well-Being Checklist (below) is a great tool for this. The checklist consists of 6 micro-behaviors that are associated with increasing happiness and feelings of well-being.
I encourage you to take a few moments this week to try a few of these simple behaviors, and then see how you feel afterwards!
