"Lay A Strong Foundation For Your Inner Infrastructure"
If you're being honest, do you feel like you're taking care of yourself? This month, The Credential offers insights for that "essential infrastructure" we often overlook: ourselves. Take a moment and give yourself a gift by heeding the words of guest author Marty Stanley. Marty graced this enewsletter in 2018, and, oh, what a difference three years has made. 
Guest Author Marty Stanley is a Certified Speaking Professional of the National Speakers Association.  She received the 2017 International Stevie SilverĀ® Award for executive coaching.  Her alma mater, University of Wisconsin, Green Bay also recognized Marty as a Distinguished Alumni in 2017.  She writes, speaks, coaches and consults on how to align personal and corporate values with making a difference in the world, one person and one organization at a time.
"Infrastructure: the basic systems and services, such as transport and power supplies, that a country or organization uses in order to work effectively." - Cambridge English Dictionary 
A/E professionals know a thing or two about infrastructure and integrity...
but, I'm not here to advocate for or against improvements or integrity for this type of infrastructure.
I'm here to suggest that we all have our own internal infrastructure that needs attention.  Many professionals are so good at their trade that they forget to apply some of the same concepts to their own well-being. 
Now that we are coming out of months of isolation, many are wondering what the "new normal" will be. Some people are clamoring to get back to the office, travel, or go to concerts and parties. On the other hand, many people liked their isolated lifestyle and aren't all that anxious to be around people again. Some people are actually admitting that as a result of pandemic pondering and reclusive reflections, they don't want to socialize or work with the people who had been in their pre-pandemic life.
We are emerging from an unprecedented global health crisis with massive death tolls. At the same time, we've been experiencing unparalleled social, economic and political upheaval. I think it's safe to say that our awareness, attitudes and values have been impacted by these great societal shifts. 
So, how are your current needs, desires or interests different than they were in January 2020?
Here are some fairly broad questions to consider to get started on defining what your "new normal" may be.  Shoring up internal infrastructure systems or support structures can help create peace of mind, and a healthy, joyous and productive life. It's best to pick the area that is most important to you and start with that to avoid becoming overwhelmed or discouraged.
Indoor and Outdoor Living Spaces
Since most of us have been confined to our homes for many months, what did you enjoy most about your indoor and outdoor living spaces? What aspects of your home seemed uncomfortable or needing improvement? Are the changes needed major or minor, and what steps can be taken to bring peace of mind and comfort in your living spaces?
Friends and Family
Have any of your friendships/relationships changed? Which relationships have grown or been enriched, and which have fallen by the wayside since the pandemic? What steps can you take to continue to nurture the positive relationships and wean away from unhealthy or dissatisfying friendships?
Work and Values
How do you feel about your work, the work environment, the management and values of your organization?  Has your opinion or outlook changed since last January? Do you feel like you need to make any changes? If yes, to gain clarity, make a list of what you want. If you're uncertain, make a list of the things you don't want, then detemine what the opposite of that would be. 
Physical Health
While some people embarked on a rigorous exercise and diet routine, many of us are experiencing the "Pandemic 15" - gaining excess pounds from munching while binge-watching Netflix and not being able to go to the gym. What systems and structures do you need for your own internal infrastructure to support improving your physical health? What are you committed to doing, what's your timeline?
Mental Well-Being
The physical and emotional isolation, fears about our health, loss of loved ones and colleagues, and concerns about financial stability have increased depression, stress and anxiety levels for millions of people. Older people have been particularly vulnerable and often think they need to "slog through it," thinking that admitting anxiety or depression is a sign of weakness.
There is nothing normal about what we've experienced, and each person's capacity for change or grief is different.  Your current capacity for handling all of the changes in the past 18 months may be very different than what it was pre-pandemic. Honor your current needs for establishing or maintaining positive mental well-being.
Know that you are not alone and that resources are available to help you navigate these turbulent times.
