How to Have Patience with Your Family During Self-Isolation from COVID-19

 

Patience is a virtue. I've heard it at least over 1,000 times in my lifetime. While the world is shut down and we are all forced into self-isolation to quarantine ourselves to prevent the spreading. If we are lucky, we are enjoying this time to bond with our loved ones. Even when we spend time with our loved ones, it can be too much.  

 

Just Breathe

Take a deep breath, six of them. In a study published by Japanese researchers, it has shown that six deep breaths are more than enough to cause a state change (1). Breathing is closely associated with our health. 

 

Focus on the Solution, Not the Problem

In times of crisis and severe stress, it is easy to blame one another. But now more than ever, it is essential to work on our problem-solving skills. Think about the problem, not the person with the problem, if it's financial look to see who is still in operating their business. Facebook forums, craigslist should all have areas with job openings.

 

Compromise

We all like different things, and that's even more important while being in a relationship. If picking something to eat is causing you and your partner stress. Flip a coin or have a schedule with the days each partner wants something to eat. Netflix and Hulu have great options for adults and children, making them an excellent platform for families.

 

Forgive

We all make mistakes, and now more than ever, we are reminded of how important forgiveness is. When times are uncertain, that's when it's time to buckle down on our morals. Forgiveness isn't just for the offending person, but it's for us too. When we hold onto a grudge, we only cause turmoil for ourselves.

 

Go Outside

States like California, Texas, and Florida are starting to reopen slowly, which means we can begin to go outside again (yay). Hiking or going for a walk does wonder for the mind. Make sure to listen to your state's guidelines. 

 

Do Something Fun

Fun can be anything especially when your allowing yourself to be in the moment. Try dancing around the house or a good old fashion pillow fight.

 

Love

Remember that families are places of love. Love conquers all even impatience.

 

Conclusion

We all have our unique problems with the coming of COVID-19. In times of uncertainty, we can lean on our values. Patience is one of the most important virtues we can have during this time.
