Cognitive Reframing During COVID-19
Here are a few examples reframing your mindset.
“I’m stuck at home” —> “I’m safe at home”
“My friends and I can’t see each other” —> “My friends and I are protecting each other”
“I miss the things I love” —> “I’m increasing my gratitude for the things I love”
‘I have lost all my freedom” —> “I have relinquished my freedom for a noble purpose”
