In times of uncertainty, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and lost. Whether it’s a global pandemic, a job loss, or a personal crisis – uncertainty and change can disrupt our lives and leave us feeling anxious and stressed. However, it’s essential to stay grounded and centered during these times to maintain our mental and emotional well-being. Here are four tips on how to stay grounded in times of uncertainty.


Connecting with family and friends can provide much-needed support and comfort. Strong relationships can serve as a source of stability and help us navigate challenging situations. Regular communication, whether through phone calls, text messages or video calls can help us stay connected and feel less isolated. Sharing our thoughts and emotions with loved ones can also help us process our feelings and gain perspective. Even if we cannot physically be together, virtual gatherings and online activities can provide opportunities for shared experiences and laughter. Ultimately, maintaining connections with family and friends can help us weather difficult times and remind us that we are not alone.

Mindfulness & Gratitude

Mindfulness and gratitude go hand in hand, allowing us to appreciate the present moment and cultivate positive emotions. Practicing mindfulness involves being fully present and aware of our thoughts, feelings, and surroundings without judgment. Gratitude involves acknowledging and appreciating the good in our lives, no matter how big or small. 

Together, these practices can help us shift our focus from what we lack to what we have, leading to greater happiness and fulfillment.

By consistently incorporating mindfulness and gratitude into our daily routine, we can experience significant improvements in our mental health, including reduced stress levels and increased resilience. Developing a habit of mindfulness and gratitude can lead to a more positive and optimistic mindset, allowing us to approach life’s challenges with a greater sense of clarity and purpose. Ultimately, the practice of mindfulness and gratitude can help us cultivate a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

We recommend starting with a quick 10 minute morning routine – When you wake, instead of reaching for your phone to scroll social media, emails or checking the news, we encourage you to take a few moments to be still and breathe deeply, connect with your thoughts and feelings. Exhale any negativity and reflect on what you’re grateful for whether it is your health, your family or simply the fact that you woke up that morning. Create a mental gratitude list of 5-10 things you are grateful for to start your day in a positive mindset. Explore with meditation, prayer or morning journaling if you want to dive deeper into mindfulness and gratitude. 


Developing an exercise routine can provide numerous benefits for both physical and mental health. Regular exercise has been shown to boost the immune system, improve cardiovascular health, enhance cognitive function, increase energy levels and reduce the risk of many chronic diseases. In addition, exercise can also help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, which are common during uncertain and challenging  times. Exercise releases endorphins, which are natural mood-boosters, and can also provide a sense of routine and structure during times when other aspects of life may feel chaotic. Developing an exercise routine can be a positive and empowering step towards taking control of one’s health and well-being during challenging times. Explore walking, running, biking, yoga, dancing or even streaming in home fitness workouts and find a routine that you enjoy and fits into your schedule.

Self-care is the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being, health and happiness. Self-care is so essential to restore your mind and body, especially during seasons of stress. Self-care can mean different things to different people, the key is identifying what it means to you. This practice allows you to connect with yourself, restore your energy, clear your mind and create a peaceful balance in your life. This could be as simple as going for a walk in nature, reading a book, taking a bath, listening to some of your favorite music, or just blocking off time on the calendar for some much needed alone time. It is simply incorporating things you enjoy and love into your weekly routine to create peace, restorative energy and balance into your life. 

In conclusion, staying grounded during times of uncertainty and change requires a combination of connection, mindfulness, gratitude, movement and self-care. It’s essential to prioritize your mental and emotional well-being during these times and seek professional help if needed. By practicing these tips, you can stay grounded and navigate uncertainty with ease, resilience and strength.
