Craving for normalcy

Craving for normalcy

With all the 2020 events, we all want life to be normal again. While we are starting to adjust to the new normal, many of us are not adjusting in a good way. We let go of positive routines and replace them with bad habits and activities.

We engage in fewer rewarding activities, ponder on stresses we can do nothing about, don't see friends frequently, and replace good habits with behaviors that keep us stuck. We are also unconsciously pausing our life and trying to wait this out.

Behavioral Activation Therapy - BAT

The idea behind BAT is that we have to do happy to feel happy. Instead of our mood changing what we do, we need to change what we do to fix our mood. The first principle of BAT is to change what you do. Engage in the right activities and positive feelings will follow.

We can't wait until we feel better before we act. Emotions perpetuate themselves. We have to move now and break the cycle of our feelings. This is how we grab hold of happiness.

The Balance Between Leisure And Mistery

  • Pleasure is vital, but we want the kind that will last and not leave you even more stressed than before you started. We're looking for a deeper satisfaction that comes from truly meaningful activities like relationships, exercise, and reading.
  • Mastery can be thought of as a feeling of accomplishment. Progress in goals that are meaningful to you, whether it pays the bills or not.

Create a balance between leisure activities and mastery.

Use Your Values To Define Your Goals

Values are ongoing (staying fit). Goals can be achieved (go running today). When you prioritize your values, your goals will not be in conflict with one another.

Goals should be challenging, but possible. Make them specific and measurable. Frame your goals in a positive way that will provide positive reinforcement.

Schedule Your Pleasure And Mastery

Don't allow your mood to define when you will do something. When we choose in the moment, we often choose badly, especially in stressful times.

Note the results of your actions and revise accordingly. Don't allow your mood to dictate your actions. You came up with the rules. You're telling you what to do.
