I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”
– J.R.R.Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
COVID-19 is challenging the ways we work, the ways we live, and our confidence in and ability to deal with the future. This leads to a range of feelings – fear, confusion, irritation, despondency, as we engage with the uncertainty of the extent to which we are going to be impacted by the spread of the Corona virus.
Many of us have had to abruptly shift from working in our offices to working at home. Even those of us used to working from home have to deal with homes more crowded, less orderly, and busier than usual. We search for a new rhythm as we engage with internal and external disruption. Sometimes in a crisis, we tend to abandon ourselves just when we need our best selves.
The MBTI® framework identifies specific activities to help us deal with these changes and practice self-care. Here are a few tips that we can use to lean on the best side of our MBTI® personality types.
