Emotion has flooded me with what's happening in our beautiful world. It is such a full-on time with Covid-19; everyone is affected in one way or another.
The psychological aspect of COVID-19 is critical
Because we'll be in this high-risk state for some time to come; therefore, we must continue to take practical precautions to look after ourselves and our families.
Although I'm looking forward to the Covid-19 crisis being over, the truth is, it won't be for some time. So while it's going on, I'm going to be here with you. Helping you to keep focused on your BIG dreams so that when things return to normal, which they will, you'll be the first out of the gate and immediately productive.
Right now, it's crucial to stay on top of your emotions, your thoughts and your fears. Rather than feel helpless, instead, get prepared. Innovate and think ahead and continue to act calmly and responsibly.
We are transiting into a new normal.
Even though there is a lot out of our control, there is also a lot in our control too.
How to stay calm when the whole world is in panic from Covid-19?
- It's so important that we honour how we're feeling
- Yes it is an uncertain time
- Acknowledge what's going on for you
- If there is stress, overwhelm, fear and anxiety it's ok, you're ok
- Breathe deeply and slow your thoughts down
- The fastest way to clarity is to stay calm
Cortisol and stress hormones are running rampant, keeping you at high alert, wanting to protect you, warning you of danger. The problem is with all the negativity currently flooding our minds; it's not helping right now—instead, its triggering knee jerk reactions.
- Find healthy ways to feel safe right now
- Permit your thoughts to slow down and breathe deeply
- Choose to feel safe and grounded
- Use this time to reflect
- Look internally for your foundation of what to do next
- Be grateful and graceful, choosing to find the good in this
Remember, your attitude is EVERYTHING!
When we're uncertain, we tend to worry, and when we suffer, things can turn negative pretty quickly. Our thoughts, feelings, actions and results are all affected. Often, it's what's not known that can scare us the most.
You've probably heard the saying "misery loves company", this is so true in crisis, which is one of the reasons why it can render us to feel so powerless.
But this isn't about doom and gloom. There is enough of that in the media right now. It is about giving you five tips to Covid-19 your mind and be brilliant now.
Everyone will be feeling the impact on different degrees, but we must train our minds to:
What we say to ourselves determines how we live.
This is why your attitude towards your life and current circumstances is so important. There'll be things that happen, shit things in life, I'm sure you've experienced a bunch of them already, that when your attitude sucks it makes you feel all the more helpless, hopeless, scared and fixated on all that is wrong. Every emotion you experience on a daily, minute to minute basis, it is your attitude that will always help you to turn your concerns around and quick smart too.
