During a time of uncertainty, it seems odd to start what you’ve been putting off. When we can’t be sure what will happen next, we may feel that now is the time to put projects and goals on hold.

Instead, now may be the best time to start that project or goal. Commit to spending a few minutes a day on that project or goal. The focus on something other than the worries can be so helpful. The opportunity to be productive on a priority can be so energizing. The chance to clear our mind’s clutter by taking care of that project or goal can be comforting.

Today, start.

About Denise

I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched Caregiving.com in 1996 to help and support them. Through my blog, I share words of comfort and offer coping strategies and tips. I also write opinion pieces about recent research, community programs and media coverage of caregiving issues. I've written several caregiving books, including "The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey," "Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers" and "After Caregiving Ends, A Guide to Beginning Again." You can purchase my books and schedule a coaching call with me in our store.
