2020 has been a rough and wild year internationally. Namely, there were national conflicts, shootings, persecutions, and the Covid-19 pandemic. However, I learned the importance of resilience, goal setting, and being organized. Thus, we should take our motivation and planning ahead into the new year. The Covid-19 pandemic will still be with us, but together, we can work to 'beat' the pandemic.
Here are my 2021 ideas: students can write cards to front line workers/learn about their Covid-19 stories, plan ahead, try to stay connected with students through extensions like zoom, take breaks from work, practice breathing, stay upbeat, seek help, write in a journal to express how they feel, and journal their Covid-19 experiences.
The transition into the new year will be hard as many people have been scarred due to the pandemic. Covid-19 and its effects really feel lasting. It will take lots of discipline, and hard work to be ready for what 2021 has in store. I hope that with the new year, people will be stay resilient and committed to beating the virus. I also hope that everything returns to normalcy by 2021-2022.
