Being in a global Corona virus pandemic is a very strange experience! None of us have lived through a global pandemic like the one we find ourselves in. It’s ok to not feel ok. It’s ok if you’re feeling extra stressed and anxious. You might also be experiencing anger, frustration, fear, sadness and a whole gamut of other emotions.
As best you can, allow yourself to feel your emotions as they come up. I find that Mindfulness and EFT really help me in this respect. I can fully feel the emotions, let them be heard and then let them go again.
The more you resist, the more they persist! So do whatever you can to let them flow.
Corona Virus Self Care
Self care is essential at any time if you ask me. No more so than during the current Corona virus pandemic! Do what works for you. Here’s what is working for me:
- Walking in nature every day (I am lucky to live near woods)
- Movement/exercise several times a week – weights, yoga & Qi Gong
- Mindfulness meditation and daily tapping
- Regular Reiki self treatments
- Eating well and enjoying occasional sweet treats (thanks to my step daughter for delicious brownies)
- Reading and watching films/TV series
- Writing in my journal / creativity
It is easy to judge other people whilst we are in this weird situation. People act strangely when they are anxious and scared. Not everyone will be in their right mind and they may be acting different from normal. Do try to be kind to everyone. We are all in this together and some of us cope better than others to changes that have been forced upon us.
If you can help people in your local community then do that. Helping someone else can help us too. It could be something simple like checking in with your neighbour to see if they need anything when you go to the supermarket.
I have a few free meditations available for you to listen to and some EFT (tapping) videos. Check them out on YouTube:
Take care and stay safe at home.
