Navigating Change Through the Pandemic

Navigating Change Through the Pandemic
  • Opening Intro -

    The COVID-19 pandemic has been a life-altering event that has completely changed the way we interact with the world.

    Some people were fortunate enough to make decisions on their own, narrowly escaping significant change.

-------------------------------------

However, services like grocery stores, postal services, and restaurants were forced to adapt to the shifting landscape as it happened.

If you’re one of the individuals working in these industries or others, you may have had to find a new job, a new place to live, or a new way of operating with your kids present. In this article, we’ll discuss how to manage these changes while still riding the waves of uncertainty.

Working From Home With Children

One of the most significant developments working parents had to endure was managing their children while they work from home, possibly more if you have a child with special needs. This situation is undoubtedly stressful and there was likely a steep learning curve along the way.

When your children are napping or engaging in quiet activities, this is the best time to get some critical work done. After school is when parents might schedule activities like outdoor playtime so kids can stay busy while mom and dad finish their work.

Employment

Finding a job can be time-consuming without a pandemic, and COVID-19 has added further difficulty.

Companies both big and small have had to adjust to the new normal. Despite previous cuts in staff, you could still snag a great opportunity since many companies who let employees go during the beginning of the pandemic are now hiring again as they rebuild business operations.

If you were laid off early in the pandemic, now is the time to hit the pavement and build your network— whether it’s online or safely at a distance.

To ensure success as you build your career, be sure that your resume and LinkedIn profiles are up to date and error-free, and make networking a priority. If you land an interview, take extra care to dress the part and look presentable.

You can also improve your career prospects by going back to school through an online program. Many online degree programs allow you to graduate faster than traditional institutions, and since you’re doing the coursework online, you’ll be able to work on your own time. For example, if you’d like to start your own business, an online business degree can teach you about accounting, marketing, and business management.

Keeping Fit and Eating Healthy

Numerous studies on eating habits during the COVID-19 pandemic show that many people let nutrition slide, and understandably so, there wasn’t much to do when everyone was stuck at home. For parents, it’s been stressful having to take on responsibility for all three meals during the workweek, and the added stress easily leads to unhealthy eating habits.

Fortunately, there are easy ways to boost your nutrition. In addition to looking for healthy meal options to prepare from home, nutritious snacks can be remarkably simple and satisfying. You can prepare an open-faced egg salad sandwich to remove excess carbohydrates, or toss some frozen fruit, greens powder, and milk in a blender for a refreshing smoothie.

Unforeseen circumstances, like COVID-19, created a whirlwind of stress and chaos, and understandably so. Navigating change can be enormously overwhelming, so if you’re still feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders, you’re not alone. A global pandemic was not something anyone was prepared for, so try to be compassionate to yourself.

Major changes can also reveal marvelous benefits and surprising opportunities. If you can manage to keep your eyes peeled and your mind open, it could allow you to move with the changes and enjoy the small benefits.
