I didn't do a ton this month, and that's okay. I had many things planned for March, however, COVID-19 happened.
Initially, I found it hard to adjust to the change and uncertainty that it brought about. I honestly didn't do as many tangible things (events, projects, etc.) as I would normally do.
Then I realized it's all about the #perspective mindset. Yes, we didn't plan for this to happen; but in times of uncertainty, there are great opportunities. I decided to take this time at home as a time to develop myself and my skills more. It's also been a great experience to spend more time with family and reevaluate how I spend my time (p.s. I would highly recommend doing this).
Three main mindsets I think can help anyone during this time are gratitude, discipline, and perspective. I've been working on strengthening all of these over the past couple of weeks.
