Approaching Crisis With A Positive Mindset

I find it interesting,  how different the responses are to this virus outbreak:

  • Italians are singing with and to each other
  • My uber driver is hoarding money
  • Some people are panic purchasing,
  • others go on vacation and ignore the whole thing.

Every single one of these people will have a different experience, and not solely based on their health and economic situation, but most importantly because of their mindset. No, you can not wish your way out of this virus, and meditation is not going to keep you from getting it, but you are in charge of what you choose to think during this time.
Are you going to make lemonade out of this huge lemon, or are you going to complain about the fact that you have nothing but lemon right now, and stay thirsty?
The choice is yours.


Here are five ideas on what you could do, instead of hanging out in groups of people

1. read non-fiction books
2. watch spiritual or religious videos on Youtube to brighten your spirit
3. Learn how to meditate
4. Declutter your closet, or another part of your home
5. write – not necessarily structured, like many suggest to write a book right now, but write whatever comes to mind, and see where it takes you

However, some activities are actually quite destructive during this time, both for your mental and physical health. Here are some suggestions on what not to do during this time, or any other time of stress:

 

“We can train our minds by selecting the information that makes us calm, removes our doubts and helps us focus more intensely on our aims.” ― Dr. Prem Jagyasi

 

5 Things to limit or stay completely away from:

1. Limit your exposure to social media, and news. Yes, you should know what is going on, but no, you do not need to discuss the news with
every person on the internet or read it over and over again, presented by different news outlets.
2. Don’t partake in conversations about conspiracy theories or doomsday scenarios. The fact is, we do not know what is going to happen over the next few months, or even longer. There is always a possibility of things going better than expected.
3. Don’t binge-watch stuff like The Purge, or catastrophe movies. This will only add to your overall anxiety level and those around you. Be especially careful what you watch right now around children
4. Stay away from alcohol, or participate in any unhealthy behavior, such as binge and comfort eating. Keep your body as healthy as possible, so that if you do have to deal with getting sick – not just from this virus, but the flu, cold and all of the other things that are still happening in the world – your body is in a better position to fight it all.
5. Don’t let negative thoughts take over your day. Deliberately practice mindfulness exercises, when you notice
negative thinking patterns to arise instead. Make it simple. Connect with any activity that you are doing. Eat mindfully, walk mindfully,
do the dishes focused, and mindful.

The choice of how you respond to this moment in time is yours. Whatever you choose, be deliberate about it.
