Feel better by developing 3 resources

Here continues my answer to the question:

What can you do when you are forced to stay at home for a longer time period during these times?

Earlier posts have been about how to deal with negative and worrying thoughts by changing your attitude, more specifically, your sense of coherence and how you can try to find new contexts.

All humans face challenges. Now, we all have to use our resources to cope with this crisis, such as money, self-sufficiency and social support. Antonovsky’s research indicates that it is our resources that enable us to understand and manage events. With the successful use of our different resources, over time we can develop an attitude that is a resource in itself.

This resource is our belief in our ability to deal with stressful situations which also develops our self-esteem.

Key resources

The last post was about identifying the resources and vulnerable areas you have to deal with this crisis:
1 Physical health
2 Mental health
3 Supportive relationships
4 Social activities
5 Hobbies
6 Necessary support: healthcare, etc.
7 Money / finances
8 Work / study
9 Sources of information
10 Personal development & contributions to society / non-profit organizations.

Now select the 3 areas where you think you are the most vulnerable and where you think you would feel better if you strengthened your resources.
More about this in the next post.
