This is a time of uncertainty for many of us; we have no idea what is going to happen regarding our healthcare needs, the economy and the prospect of returning to our daily routines.
I recognize that I am fortunate to have an online business during this time. I did not prepare to be able to withstand global social isolation, but my business is able to continue during times of crisis.
I know that I am in the minority, and that is why I want to help in any way I can.
As a blogger, I hope to provide you with comforting advice, and maybe something new to think about, so I am going to start there.
We are all in this together
Now more than ever we need to rely on each other and be thoughtful and caring toward those around us. We need to have faith in humanity because, honestly, we don’t have any other option.
We can choose to focus on physical separation, or we can choose to focus on how a crisis can bring us all together as a global community.
The ability to share similar experiences creates connections and allows us to empathize with our peers so let’s not take this opportunity for granted – let’s use it to connect and help those who need us most. Call or text a friend or family member to see how they are doing. Even a small gesture can go a long way. You may be the only person who has reached out to them!
The light will come
They say that whenever there is darkness, light will follow. We are currently in a dark time, but surely we can each make sure something wonderful – either personally or on a larger scale – will come of it.
Take this opportunity to work on other areas in your life that you might have neglected before because you were too “busy”, like your health, your hobbies, learning a new skill, reading a book, creating an online business, your relationships, etc.
Although times may be stressful right now, try your best to take this time to actually rest. This will not only benefit our mental health, but rest can also help our immune system function optimally, which is essential right now.
Adapt as best you can
If you own a business, are working from home or have little ones who are out of their regular routine, do your best to adapt to your environment. If you continue to work outside the home, give yourself grace in these uncertain times.
I know change is hard, especially when we are forced into it quickly. But the faster you can adapt your work and your habits to support you, the faster you’ll be able to feel a little safer and a little more comfortable.
I know this advice might not help everyone, as everyone is experiencing this a little differently, but please try to put your focus on the things you can control.
- Your actions
- Your thoughts
- Your consumption (of all items like food, media and household items)
Let’s focus on the things that bring us joy and the things that can help us feel our best.
One way to feel good is to stay active while you’re at home. Because my business offers at-home workout, we thought this would be the perfect time to let you try it out for free! Pilates on Demand is having a promotion right now where everyone can get 2 weeks for free!
Use the code STAYHEALTHY at checkout to get 2 weeks 100% FREE.
Remember, together we will get through this.
