I’m probably speaking for most of the world’s population when I say, “This pandemic is the worst personal crisis of my life. Every day is filled with fear and overwhelm.” During this trial, I have found a few actions and activities which work for me in dealing with helpless feelings. Here they are:
1. Begin the day by going outside with a cup of coffee. Spend the first ten minutes sipping the coffee and praying for love, strength, peace, guidance, and gratitude this day to be with all the people in your families and friends, by name, including yourself and the rest of humanity. Then say prayers asking for the same things all other creation.
2. Go back inside, get a second cup of coffee, and do ten minutes of positive affirmations which I call meditations. I know a program of positive, vividly visualized affirmations works. The most important ones are, “I love doing my affirmations,” and “Affirmations work to improve my life.” I learned these and other affirmations when I was in school and improved my mile time to 4:13.2 which was very good at the time. I just looked on the web for current information on positive affirmations and found a link to Psychology Today that may be interesting and enlightening to you:
3. Eat a healthy, portion-controlled diet.
4. Get some form of exercise every day outside.
