7 Tips to Stay Positive during COVID-19

Good morning, lovely YOU!

I am sitting here with my big mug of tea, watching little ZuZu sleep. Being a cat, ZuZu has no idea about the Coronavirus. There she lies without a care, knowing that when she awakens, she will have treats and toys and all will be well in her world. I do believe she senses that the energy has changed because she is more snuggly and cries far more than usual.

Not many of us are feeling so relaxed these days. You can’t turn on the radio or TV or check your Facebook page without catching a bit of doom and gloom news.

The truth is, the stress and anxiety of this pandemic can be far more unhealthy for most people than the actual Coronavirus itself. It’s crucial that we all take care of ourselves and each other during this time. With this in mind, here are some ways you can keep your mind and energy positive (and therefore your immune system boosted) during this pandemic:

1. Take a Break from the News

Yes, it’s essential to stay aware of what is going on nationally and in your local area, but you needn’t stay glued to the TV or the Internet. The media these days seems to be more about spreading fear than accurate information anyway. So take breaks. Watch something more positive and uplifting.

2. Recognize Your Own Strength

Depending on your age, this is most likely not the first crisis you have endured. There was the financial crash of 2008, other pandemic viruses, and of course, the horrors of 911. Not only have you made it through all of those, but you are also most likely stronger because of it. Remind yourself that you will get through this as well.

3. Have More Laughs

The old saying “laughter is the best medicine” didn’t become an old saying just because. Laughing is truly an elixir for your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. And since most of us find ourselves at home, bored, with not much to do (except that spring cleaning none of us WANTS to tackle right now), it’s a great time to get the family together, pop some popcorn, and watch some of your favorite comedies.

4. Be of Service to Others

Do you have elderly neighbors or neighbors who are battling a major illness? No doubt life is even more stressful for them right now. It will make you feel great if you give them a call and check in on them to see if you can help them in any way. Be mindful to keep your distance of course, but see if they need some help with shopping or other errands.

5. Be Grateful

Something you can do with the extra time on your hands is to be grateful for all that you have in your life. If you and your loved ones are healthy, feel grateful. If you have enough food and paper products stocked up, feel grateful. If you aren’t being impacted negatively by financial hardship right now, feel grateful. If the birds are still singing outside and you can see daffodils starting to open, feel grateful.

6. See the Silver Lining

Many of us have been sent home from our jobs; speaking events have been canceled, just about everything is shutting down, and we are told to stay home. You can either look at this as a stressful time, or you can look at it as an opportunity to spend more time with your family and/or focus on something you’ve been meaning to do but haven’t had time for. This could be spending time exercising, working on that book or mission statement for your new business. How often are you told to stay home? Not often or even ever, so take full advantage of this time and use it to your advantage.

7. Support Your Local Businesses

While it is not advised that we gather in groups of over 10 people, many local restaurants and gyms and hair salons, etc. are getting hit hard. If you are lucky enough to be still getting a paycheck, consider buying a gift certificate from local businesses to use later and order food from restaurants online and have it delivered.

I want to hear from you! Tell me over here https://www.prudencesinclair.com/forum/​ some ways you and your family are coping with this challenging situation. What are you doing with your family? One of my friends who has 3 girls has turned their dining room table into a ping pong table. I heard my friend, Holly is a pretty good ping pong player. Who knew!

How are you spending your time? What are you learning about yourself?

Much love,

Prue

In order for your body to heal you’ve got to help it rid itself of harmful toxins that are stored inside of it. A holistic healer can guide you and help facilitate a liver cleanse, a kidney cleanse and a bowel cleanse.

Some other ways to rid your body of toxins are to exercise and stretch daily. This will help release acids from your muscles that are making your body’s pH too acidic. And an acidic pH is what allows disease to take hold.

Jumping on a trampoline is also a great way to move your lymph fluid and flush out those wastes. Sitting in a warm sauna and sweating will also help remove toxins.

Proper nutrition is critical to treating cancer.
Refined sugar feeds cancer cells and these foods will need to be eliminated from your diet ASAP. All processed foods should go.
Right now you should be feeding your body an anti-inflammatory diet that focuses on healthy fats, organic produce and clean sources of protein. It’s also incredibly important that you drink plenty of clean, pure water!

It is possible to commit no errors and still lose. That is not a weakness - that is life.
- Captain Jean-Luc Picard, from Star Trek.

Every skill in the world - from athletics to art, pottery to public speaking - is built out of the nuggets of wisdom gained from failing over and over again.
As we become adults, we tend to fail less, so we forget what it's like to fail and treat it as a learning experience rather than a personal judgement.

Sometimes our faliures are due to influences outside of our control.
Sometimes our best just wasn't good enough.
You tried. You took a risk. They don't all pay off.
It's alright. It happens.

As we get closer to halloween, all the fun costume ideas people are coming up with make me think of a less literal mask.
The kind of masks we wear every day, around other people.
The masks we put on so we feel safer, like we'll be more accepted.

It's a good time to reflect on your inner masks - Are they stressing you out?
Do you feel like you can still be your genuine self?
Have you tried dropping the mask, lately?

Whether it's trying to keep a friendly face even when you're feeling down, or acting confident when you feel hopeless - It's often better to be emotionally honest with the people around you.
