Dasein Search: Optimism Amidst Chaos - How Can Understanding, Hospitality, And Action Stimulate Confidence And Positive Perspectives In Teams?
For Dasein CEO Adriana Prates, although it may be early to make concrete plans during this time of instability, it is important to draw probable scenarios regarding your market, career, personal finances and possibilities, in order to ensure life quality. And, of course, do not forget to be optimistic. “Do everything possible to keep your physical and emotional health stable, like doing exercises at home, eating healthily and picking up positive new habits, like reading and other forms for entertainment.”
In order to help curb our tendency to focus on problems, one needs an awareness exercise. According to Dasein Operation Manager Luzete Campolina, facts always have negative and positive aspects. “There are two sides to every story and it is fundamental to know them both to determine how to conduct ourselves. It is up to us to listen to the side that can help us the most, depending on what we are experiencing. If the goal today is mental health, you need to listen to the positive side and focus on developing skills that can be a differential in this time of crisis”.
