Take a moment. Breathe in. Breathe out. We’re all going through some tough stuff right now, but we can do this. 100%.
We’re living through COVID-19 anxiety, and as I write this, we’ve settled a little. We’ve all found a new normal. After a week (or a few weeks!) of practice, we’re finding a new groove.
If you’re feeling a bit better these days, YAY! But if you’re also feeling the stress and COVID-19 anxiety, IT’S OKAY!
If you’re feeling anxious, I hear you — and you aren’t alone. You’ve also got a built-in care tool to help you: your body.
The best way to move through the stress and anxiety of COVID-19 is to move it through the body. When we feel stressed it means we are in our heads, and the “monkey mind” is taking over. To get through it, we need to ground ourselves — and moving the body is a great way to do this.
What we’re talking about here is balancing the different sources of wisdom we’ve all got — because balance helps us feel better. It’s what we’re actually always seeking, whether we know it or not! I often teach this visually as a “Self-Care Tree:” you need strong, healthy roots (grounding), to help support you when your top, or crown (thinking), is overloaded. Otherwise, you fall over!
When we are in balance, we can process information differently. So the stress might still be there (that ever-present COVID-19 anxiety), but we can respond better and not lose our sh*t.
And I’ve put together a bundle of resources for you to help. I designed them to be quick and easy remedies to help you move through your stress and anxiety at this time.
