We also have a whole range of tools at our disposal that we can use to take care of our own well-being. I would mention here: listening to good - the way we like - music, lighting a candle with a scent that puts us in a good mood, eating a delicious dish, going for a massage.
In the face of our fears awakened by the pandemic, yes. Certainly, we started to pay much more attention to health: and it can definitely have a good impact on our well-being. We take care of hygiene, we consciously approach each other, we do not want to endanger each other. On the other hand, COVID and previous isolation have awakened fears in us: we fear not only getting sick, but also of losing a job, lack of livelihoods or lack of relationships. To deal with our fears, we must first visualize them: understand what we fear and why. Here again the presence of another person and the conversation will be helpful.
We can learn to recognize emotions, but a systemic change is probably needed for that. Teachers in kindergarten or school constantly remind children that they should be polite, quiet and calm. But screaming and running are healthy ways of expression.
The easiest way to start is to teach teachers to be empathetic towards children. Besides, learning or managing by empathy gives the best results by far: when we receive positive stimuli, the easiest way to learn is. In business, such behavior takes place - unfortunately not at school. Employers, at least in large multinational companies, have drawn conclusions and know that when talking to an employee they emphasize their advantages, even if the purpose of the conversation is to draw attention, they will achieve a much better effect than if they only point out mistakes and treat the employee from a position of authority .
When a child is in the playground and loses a shovel, it will probably start crying. But whether or not he will despair depends on the parent's response. If the parent starts to blame the child and says "something you did" or threatens to never buy him a spatula again, the child will cry, be afraid and despair. On the other hand, if the parent said that they can also play without a spatula, that sometimes it happens, or that a blade can be made of a stick, the child will probably calm down quite quickly. And which reaction was more mature?
We live in a culture and it imposes on us a number of behaviors that are considered desirable or not. Some of us have a greater curiosity about the world and an openness to what is beyond our civilization framework. If, in addition, we are sensitive and attentive people, we will probably develop this awareness in ourselves more easily. Otherwise, we will reproduce behaviors or reactions that are convenient or attractive to us for various reasons. Because, in fact, we want to. that we would be happy.
