3. Create positive energy
As the adage goes “you are what you eat”. Police yourself with what you’re consuming online. If you put negative messages in, you’ll feel negative and anxious too. Be a thoughtful consumer of news/social media/word of mouth information and think critically of what to believe and who follow. Here are some resources to feed your soul with positivity.

4. Manage your thoughts and emotions
Stop, reflect and work on yourself. Now is the time to take a deep breath and listen to what’s important for you and your family, not what’s important for the masses. Here are some tips to manage your thoughts and energy, and connect with yourself:
- If you’re feeling exhausted because of your emotional rollercoaster of highs and lows, unlock your source of energy and connect with what you’re deeply grateful for. Learn Tony Robbins’ 10-minute priming exercise.
- If you’re feeling stressed. Learn the Wim Hof breathing method to regulate your biochemistry.
- If you don’t feel inspired, play an instrument. You’re giving your brain a ‘full-body workout’. This helps your brain solve problems creatively. TED-ED explanation here.
- You only need a quiet space for you to put your mind at ease with meditation. There are many meditation apps available. We recommend Calm and Headspace
- Michael Crossland’s Best Version of Yourself is an online course that helps people become more resilient through mindset exercises and techniques.
- If you’re WFM these days, you might be “working-out-from-home” too because of some gym closures. Training Apps like Nike Training Club and Sweat teach you how to utilise your space at home for your workout.
5. Stay connected
Social distancing doesn’t have to mean social disconnection. Here are some ways to reach out to the community.
- Stay connected to the community – communicate on the Success Resources social channels.
- Host a video call to catch up with friends, colleagues and family. Sometimes just a weekly ‘hello’ goes a long way.
- Send a loved one a note to say how much you appreciate them. Experiment with designing e-cards on design tool, Canva
