There is no doubt that the successive lockdowns of 2020-21 have dramatically changed our daily lives on so many levels, and figures show that more people have experienced anxiety due to the social, financial and work restrictions that have been placed on us.
We took the opportunity to talk to Said, who is using his personal experience with overcoming a serious illness to pass the message about the benefits that a positive mindset can have on health outcomes.
So, we asked him to give his take on how our attitude can affect the way we have to deal with the difficulties of successive lockdowns and how we can avoid getting bogged down by the hurdles that the pandemic has thrown at us.
While listening, listen out for these words:
to heal yourself / to cure yourself = to get better after an illness
your mindset = the way you think about problems and difficulties
“good and bad are two sides of the same coin”
“We create our own happiness” / “What makes you happy”. Notice that “happiness” is the noun and that “happy” is the adjective.
The tough aspects of lockdown= the difficult aspects of lockdown
To be grateful = to appreciate the good things that we have
