Mental Victory over Coronavirus
Take more quiet time to develop a closer relationship with God: This is something we should do on a regular, but for those of us that are staying inside for a little bit, this is a good time to get in the word a little more and get to know God a little better.
Spend more quality time with Family: This should be a no brainer, but you will be surprised to know how many of us think we do a good job of this already and are actually failing. Being physically there and actually spending Quality time are too totally different things. Step outside your comfort zone and research things you can do to be more present with your family.
Read a book: I do have two great easy reader books that’s available on Amazon and PDF form right now, but of course you choose what book you want to indulge in.
Catch up with friends: Text, call, send a nice message especially to the ones you haven’t heard from in a while.
Spend some time enjoying the beautiful scenery that God has blessed us with: This is something I definitely don’t do often enough. I was actually prepared to accompany my hubby to the track this weekend just to do so, but since there was a change in plans, I may enjoy a little porch action today like the good old days with my Granny.
Clean: We all get a little behind here and there with the real deal cleaning. Now is a great time to catch up if you have the energy to do so.
Focus on goals: If you don’t have any goals, then establish some. We all have room to grow, and things we should focus more of our time on. Let’s take this time to establish some especially if we aren’t making a habit of this on a regular basis.
Gas up your car and just take a ride: Nothing says peace of mind more than just riding and relaxing listening to your favorite music and reflecting on life.
Rest and drink plenty of fluids, vitamins, etc. to keep your immune system up and ready for whatever: None of us know if we or someone we love will become exposed to any of these viruses so best bet is to get your immune system prepared. If you have pre-existing health issues, make sure they are taken care of.
Use social media to spread positivity, love, and laughter: If you aren’t big on social media, now is your time to find positive things to post to keep everyone in good spirit. If you are usually a negative poster, then maybe you can take a break from that lifestyle and switch it up a bit. You may see that this way works even better for you.
Calm down: Watch a movie, listen to soothing music, go for a run or any type of excercise, laugh more, practice breathing techniques. The list goes on and on. If this is giving you anxiety then this is your chance to educate yourselves on anxiety and learn the techniques that the pros(me included) have to do on a daily basis to keep down anxiety.
Please stop reading the statistics: If one more person call me just to tell me how many people died in a particular state, I am going to scream. We have to change our mindset and focus more on what we can do and Not on what we can’t control.
Remember we are in this together. By keeping yourself healthy and sane you are essentially helping others too because you are taking the necessary precautions and being careful not
to spread germs to yourself and others. Nothing is wrong with having knowledge and being prepared, but let’s make a habit of some of these things so we aren’t in panic mode next time. Let’s keeps our hands washed on a regular basis, allow ourselves space between yourself and someone else’s personal space, eat healthier, exercise more, take your vitamins, and get your check-ups regularly. I’m
no doctor so I’m not putting facts here, my goal is just to help you keep things in perspective while you take the necessary precautions for yourself and your family.
