How to stay positive and empowered when facing a challenge

Layoffs. Work backlog. Reduced resources. Constant changes. It’s scary. 
It seems almost impossible to stay positive and enjoy life. But there is a way.

We can dissect everything that happens around us into 3 groups: 


1. Things that will (or potentially can) happen, doesn’t matter what we do.

2. Things that we can control, that are fully in our power.

How can you take care of yourself to regain energy, with whom you can connect, what brings you joy, what do you need?
