Dealing with uncertainty
Here are some hints to help in dealing with uncertainty. Do you ever feel like a big heavy blanket of uncertainty has been pulled over you?
People who have been able to bounce back from stress caused by uncertainty, were able to adopt a range of self-care strategies. The best ones I have come across include the following.
One step at a time
Live life in the moment, focusing on today and what you need to achieve. Break bigger goals into smaller tasks and apply yourself, focusing on the small steps day-by-day.
Often we are told to set long-term goals for the future. While it’s important to have those goals in mind when applying ourselves, we also really have no idea about what the future holds. So perhaps it is more important to focus on the here and now. There are small things that we are able to have more influence over.
Run your own race
Rather than focusing too much on what everyone else is doing it can be helpful to turn your attention to your own personal goals. By focusing on life areas that are personally meaningful, you’ll gain the opportunity to create greater fulfilment and clearer purpose in how you live.
Can you control this?
Be clear about differentiating between what you can control and things outside of your control. Choose to focus and direct your attention towards things you can control.
Cultivate qualities of acceptance and surrendering to the direction that life is pointing us towards. This allows you to welcome each circumstance as a new opportunity to create something new in each moment.
Will you react or respond?
Choose to be clear about how you wish to respond to setbacks and challenges – to be reactive, or responsive?
By checking in with our emotional reactions to setbacks we can make proactive choices about how we respond. This allows us to operate from a place of greater agency in navigating circumstances.
Routine gives you a sense of certainty about how you approach your life. Subsequently, this allows you to be proactive in meeting the demands of the day ahead.
Prioritise self-care and enjoyment
This is arguably the most important step. Learn to enjoy the simple things. Tune into the simplicity of life and take time to ‘smell the roses’. Allow yourself time to explore, fully absorb and take pleasure in the things you enjoy.
The Right Qualities
Through these simple habits and practices, we cultivate qualities and attitudes that help us meet uncertainty with a little more clarity and optimism.
And be comforted by the truism that it is through struggle we are offered the opportunity to build gratitude and strength.

The Options are Almost Endless
Rather than trying to force a dogmatic approach to our daily lives, it may be more suitable to experiment and tune into whatever works best for us.
Whether it be low intensity, or higher intensity movement;
Yoga, or meditation;
Reading a book, or journaling;
Cold showers/plunge pools, or walm, relaxing shower;
Coffee, or herbal tea;
Fasting, or a well balanced nutritional breakfast;
The choices and opportunity to experiment are endless. To choose the best routine, perhaps it is most important to tune into what we most need on a daily basis. By making active choices and proactively planning our morning routines, we give ourselves an opportunity to create the conditions for our daily success.
