A mental stronghold is a practice that creates a stockpile of mental reserves you can always fall back on in challenging circumstances (for example, gratitude).

IDEAS

  • On time = one minute early, because there are lots of different links and things that people need to click.
  • Slack time vs. Solo time. If you're always available on Slack or email, you're multitasking and unable to do deep work. Instead, check in periodically throughout the day.
  • Dedicated workspace. Even if not ideal, try to create a dedicated home office workspace in whatever way possible.
  • Pomodoros & Music. The practice of the Pomodoro Technique (where you work for 25 to 50 minutes followed by a 5 - 10-minute break), combined with music to increase focus, is very effective.
Losing a Loved One

There seems to be a 'support gap' in which positive emotions like hope, gratitude, kindness, bravery, and resilience hardly find any mention during the grieving period.
