The Covid-19 global pandemic has left our world perplexed, and dental assistants, like the rest of the world, are baffled, overworked, and stressed.

The first thing you need to do is stop watching the news all day. If there is breaking news worth hearing, it will reach you no matter what. Include cutting down on social media, screen time, and watching television.

Instead, focus your time on a few new hobbies, try focusing your attention elsewhere, and filling your schedule up with new activities. Try spending your time reviving your faith with the world in chaos. We all need to awaken our spiritual selves once again. Ever tried meditating? Meditation relieves your mind of stress and helps your body rejuvenate energy. If you haven’t before, try it now.

When was the last time you talked to your friends and neighbors? Start spending some time with people emotionally close to you as this is an excellent activity for overcoming strain and stress. Try making journal entries, write down your inner thoughts, express yourself, and maybe you will end up finding yourself.

Do you like to cook? Perhaps your favorite pastime is sewing. During this pandemic, the world has seen an economic collapse like none before, trying using what you know to help out those you do not know. Volunteering may sound silly, but right now, it is very well necessary.

What do you plan to do after the pandemic ends? Start making goals for your life. You have an excellent opportunity in your reach to evaluate every decision you ever made and prepare yourself for what you may face ahead in life.
