I know I have been gone for a hot sec, with no real explanation aside from life getting in the way.
A lot has changed in what seems like a short space of time, but just know a sis has been grinding! Nonetheless I thought I’d make my way back to provide a little guidance during this confusing period aka the Covid times.
Frankly, the world seems to be at the brink of collapse; untameable wildfires in Australia, locust outbreaks in Africa, topping it all of with a global epademic threatening life as we know it. It’s a shit show of biblical proportions.
It seems the world is operating at its lowest vibration. With mass media feeding the frenzy of panic, hysteria and blatant negativity. All our energies are somewhat aligned with the bullshit that is the current state of affairs. Don’t get me wrong, it’s good to stay informed in order to protect yourself and others around you. But internalising all this bad news 24 hours a day – will simply turn you mad.
So I’ve made a list of things I’ve been doing to remain sane throughout all of this;
This is an essential part of my ‘me’ time, on days where I’ve been feeling anxious or uneasy, meditation has definitely been key. There’s something about being still and processing your thoughts or feelings one by one. It’s a great way to establish a sense of control in a time where we feel like we have none. Here I also take time to set my intentions for the day/week or work through my affirmations. Remember all is mind!
Since everyone’s favourite sport currently is walking to the fridge, I’d like to remind you of the physical and mental benefits of exercise. It provides necessary stress release and can break up a somewhat monotonous day – especially for the working from home gang! For me, morning yoga sessions have been my saving grace, along with some home workouts to end the day. Get that apocalypse body right and tight!
3. Read a book
Let’s face it, this is the most free time any of us have had in a while. And I know damn well you’ve rinsed through all the worthwhile shows Netflix had to offer. Now is the time to learn something new, or simply escape the hysteria in a healthy way. There are a lot of resources online to allow you to pick up a new skill or two. Remember that the only thing in isolation right now is your body not your mind.
Lighten up, and try not to take things too seriously! Watch a funny film, call on friends or family – virtual hangouts are the in thing these days give it a try. It doesn’t have to be a gloomy experience. Plus The Covid meme game has been pretty strong of late, how can you not be entertained?
5. Drink! (Responsibly)
In this life you we cannot come and die. Raise a glass to this whole damn experience. We are all in it together!
