Everyone experiences a crisis at some point in their life. There was a time when I felt helpless and sad.

I did the worst thing I could do. I locked myself up in my room and sank into self-pity.

But what changed for me was the realization that we all have a choice. And as soon as that clicked, I started to understand that overcoming this crisis wasn't that hardโ€”I just had to get help.

Here's what I did

I took an online resilience course from Prof. Dr. Jutta Heller.

What is resilience? It is the ability to get out of a crisis mentally and physically stronger than before.

These are seven practical tips on how to handle a current crisis

  1. ๐Ÿ‘ธ Take time for yourself. Look for a protected place in nature, at home, or on a short vacation.
  2. โš– Check whether it is good to be alone or prefer to be with someone familiar. Being together without talking will help you to heal.
  3. ๐Ÿ“† Set up a daily schedule and stick to it (getting up, meal times, active times, relaxation phases, bedtime).
  4. โœ Bring your thoughts to paper - by talking or writing. Find an understanding listener who can bear your complaints and support you.
  5. ๐Ÿ‘ Notice what has remained intact in the current crisis. Write down these aspects in your different areas of life (job, family, friends, hobbies, etc.).
  6. โ›ท Moderate physical activity is helpful, as the clarification process can slowly end.
  7. ๐ŸŽ Be understanding and patient with yourself. Such a process takes time.
