Though this pandemic can feel like it will be endless, it will eventually pass. Staying motivated can help refocus our attention away from these stressful changes and towards a more hopeful future.
It is important to recognize that these aren’t normal times, and our productivity is likely not at its peak right now and that is okay.
Big goals may seem insurmountable right now; instead, focus on small, realistic, achievable goals for each day. Recognise the power of KISS- Keep It Short and Simple.
