To keep your own morale high, turn regularly to your sources of restoration: family, hobbies, exercise, etc.:
1. Remember that you can choose a positive mindset. Ask yourself questions such as, “What’s great about this?” or “What can I learn from this?” to help maintain a positive state.
2. Join a networking or peer group. You’ll gain a much needed resource by having a group of equals who can listen when you have concerns and offer their own perspectives and solutions. Or have a deep discussion with your spouse or a close friend. Tell them what you’re experiencing.
3. Take five. Take a walk, close the door—control what you can. Feeling out of control starts the stress hormones gushing, so exert control over situations that are easy to remedy. And a brief break can turn off the natural “fight-or-flight” response.
4. Renew with a breather. Psychotherapist Kristin Paulig of Durham, N.C., says you can’t help but feel better when you do this breathing exercise: Breathe in deeply through the nose for a count of four. Hold it for a count of seven. Make your mouth into a small “o” and exhale for a count of eight.
