Make other plans. When plan A can’t happen, come up with a plan B. Keep plans small and achievable. Don’t plan to learn guitar, bake croissants and start a university degree in week one. Think about the many things you can do within the restrictions. Make sure you find a balance. And when we catch ourselves thinking negatively, redirect our energy and focus on positive solutions. When we become too preoccupied with thinking about situations that have not met our expectations, we can create unnecessary stress.
