Ideas For Your Best Life In Challenging Times
I was listening to a podcast over the weekend about the coronavirus. And it was super interesting. It seems there are a few things each of us can begin to do right now to reduce our fear levels and to improve our health and wellbeing.
Gregg Braden shared these ideas and I would like to pass them onto you today. There are some powerful ideas that you can begin today to optimize your health, the immune system and your overall wellbeing.
The decisions we make right now will determine what this post coronavirus future will look like for each of us.
Gregg Braden goes on to ask this powerful question, a question that we use in our Holistic Lifestyle coaching program– Do we love ourselves enough to give our bodies what we need to do, what our bodies were designed to do to ensure our survival and our viability? Do we love ourselves enough to honour ourselves everyday?
When we take in nutrition into our bodies is that nutrition the highest form of nutrition at that moment?
And if it is not why would we not give ourselves that highest form of nutrition? There are processed/packaged entities that we can take to fill our stomachs, but it is not food it is chemicals made in factories and packaged and sold to a vulnerable population.
We now see more than ever how much we need our bodies and how much we rely on our bodies.
Many of us our living in fear of getting this virus and this is ultimately the fear of not being capable of transcending the virus.
If you have lived your life in ways that honours your body and it doesn’t have to be extreme -
We already know that the following actions honour our body, mind and spirit:
These are the things that optimize the immune system.
The past is in the past and this is the PERFECT moment to begin these LIFESTYLE CHANGES because the immune system is able to react quickly to influence and impact your body within hours and days.
Finally, he spoke about our Grief. We are all in grief and the question is what we are grieving? Surprising the answer is we are grieving the loss of a way of life. The way we live, social gatherings, meals together, sporting events that we were living a few short weeks ago. We will move through the 5 stages of grief. Denial, anger, depression, bargaining and acceptance. (learn more about the 5 stages of grief here https://grief.com/the-five-stages-of-grief/)
As I said when I began this post the podcast was interesting. It is the fear of the unknown, the uncharted territory we may feel we area living in at this moment. I wrote the other day on the topic of - Focus on Things You Can Control and what I learned about the idea of “I Can’t Change That” here is the link https://bit.ly/2JsptPH to that post if you would like to read more. We can’t change where we are with this global health pandemic however we can change how we feel by managing our stress and working through the stages of grief, connecting with those that we care about, taking time to feed our bodies life affirming nutrition and use movement as medicine.
We are working on all of this and over the past week we have seen our stress levels come down. Our minds are calmer because we are doing the things that are within our control and putting aside the things that are out of our control. This feels much better for us.
