Think outside the box during the COVID-19 Crisis.
While Covid-19 changes our world at a rapid rate. There are so many challenges and unknowns. As a globe, we are faced with a crisis where although we need to take care of ourselves, it is through caring for ourselves, that we care for our community at large, locally, nationally, globally.
I have felt hart warmed by the amount of good coming out of humans, as we all bunker down, where neighbours, friends, family and even strangers, are lending a hand to those most in need.
Remember we can all help each other, no matter how small the gesture. Firstly the most important things to consider are:
Taking care of yourself first and foremost. This helps stop the spread of the virus. Not only does this help you, but it also helps our medial and healthcare systems and communities as a whole.
- Washing our hands
- Not standing too close to people
- Staying home if we are unwell
- Not sharing food or drinks
- Rest – get ample sleep to ensure you have a strong and healthy immune system.
- Eat healthily, avoiding processed foods putting more pressure on your body.
- Use calming tools to help reduce stress and anxiety. Check out my 5 min FREE calming meditation here.
- Living with precaution, but still living. It sounds like a fine line, doesn’t it? And it is, but it is doable.
It is not only our seles we need to take care of but also our community. The importance of community and connection in our lives is one of the most important aspects of our lives.
Although some of us might be in isolation, we are not alone.
Knowing that you have a community to support you, helps us all.
With the support of my family and friends during my recovery from the Swiss Canyoning Disaster, I was able to bring my life back to a new way of living. It didn’t always feel sure that this would happen. Yet by following the right channels and having the right support at home and in my community made all the difference to my mental and physical wellbeing. And that is exactly what we all need now.
You can easily send an email, call a friend or send a text to check in to make sure they are OK. Help them interrupt the isolation and sense of loneliness or anxiety. It’s times like these that we remember who supported us, who helped us come together, who helped turn around the dark times. Even though we may be isolated, we are not alone.
It is in times like these where we all are needed to think outside the box, come together and help each other get through this crisis.
Here is a link to a fabulous article ( including your’s truly) where 17 business are helping each other with special offers. It might just be the thing you are needing at this time and I share with you in delight knowing that people around the globe are coming together to help make a difference.
Thank you for taking care of yourself and of our community and our globe. Together we will get through this.
Much love and kindness,
