Monday Motivation: The Novel Coronavirus

Monday motivation, it’s on! Now, more than ever, we know that you need it. Together, the world is working through it all and we’re all working together. Chin up, we’re going to get through this.

Studies show that your morning mood affects your productivity all day. Our friends at Grit Daily are here to get your work week off to a good start. Pump your fists – it’s time for Monday Motivation!

The Novel Coronavirus

Last month, the word “coronavirus” wasn’t even in our lexicon. Today, through non-stop media coverage, most of us have become self-professed experts on pandemics, the spiky virus and the escalating toll that it’s taking on the world. We’ve also added a new term to our vocabulary that’s currently defining everyday life, “social distancing.”

The world is shifting in an unprecedented way, but we are shifting together. Monday motivation emphasises the keyword here, “unified,” with respect to the global effort underway to contain this thing. Governments, scientists and health organisations are collaborating like never before, coordinating efforts to bring some stability back to the world. Coronavirus is an equal opportunity pathogen. It doesn’t discriminate when it comes to race or socioeconomic status. Each of us is vulnerable to the potential risk for transmission and each of us has to manage our fear and anxiety through this challenging time.

The fear of not knowing

How you feel is valid. Full stop. Monday motivation recognizes the importance of this and it cannot be understated. Most of us fear the unknown because we don’t know what we don’t know. And that’s scary for a lot of us. Being afraid heightens our anxiety; confusion compounds it. So how can we best manage our fear and anxiety during troubled times? First, take heart knowing that we are all in this together. Being kind to ourselves and one another is essential to our well being. And we will find peace. This is Monday motivation – we can do anything!
