Since 9/11 there hasn’t been a time where the mass consciousness has collectively been in a state of fight-or-flight. Even those who feel prepared to defend against the virus likely feel threatened by the economic impact and the uncertainty around this entire situation. What can you do? There are some things that are within your control and some things that aren’t. Focus on what you can control. This article will give some tips to help you to come through this situation strong and in shape to persevere.
BODY: First and foremost, take care of your vessel. Drink plenty of water. Go easy on the coffee and alcohol. Eat healthy foods with an emphasis on brightly colored vegetables. Take your supplements (our recommendations below). Move your body. Go for a walk or run. Do YouTube yoga. Even some simple stretches and twists will help. Sleeeeeeep!
MIND: Inhale… exhale… inhale… exhale… Did you know that deep, slow, diaphragmatic breathing literally takes you out of fight-or-flight? Did you know that being stuck in fight-or-flight actually lowers your resistance to infections? Turn off the news. Play some music that makes you feel good. Watch a show or movie that always makes you laugh (I suggest The Princess Bride). This is not the time to be watching shows/movies about serial killers and such (really, there is never a time that is good for you). Detox your social media! If you have a “Facebook Friend” who is on a rampage about any topic, even if you agree with them, click the snooze button on them (you can snooze Facebook friends for 30 days without them knowing). Make sure you engage in posts that make you feel good/happy. Facebook algorithms will gladly show you more of what you like/comment/share.
SPIRIT: Okay, so you had a nice cup of organic peppermint tea and you took some nice deep breaths while listening to some feel-good music. Now let’s take it to the next level… Do a guided mediation or an online prayer service. There are lots of free apps to help you with this and YouTube can teach you how to do just about anything. Connect with others via phone/Facetime/Zoom/Skype/Facebook Messenger or something in real-time. Especially check in on people living alone, single parents, and the elderly. They need to hear from you – and please try to talk about things other than the virus and the economy. Talk about recipes or pets you have or used to have. Take a walk down memory lane with them. Get in the energy of better days.
PLANET: It’s spring! Mother Earth is calling! Spend some time with her too. Even if it is just sitting on your front steps. Get outside. Breathe out there. The air is better.
