We are having a shared experience right now. The coronavirus is having a massive impact on the world. Even as things start to open up, fear and anxiety are prevalent but what if something different was possible?
You see, your point of view creates your reality, so what you focus on grows. If you tap into the panic, you will get more panic. What if instead you could ride the wave of uncertainty, thrive during tumultuous times, and tap into the possibilities?
Stuck on where to start? Here are three easy tools to use if you are getting swept away by the corona-panic.
Use this as an opportunity to reset
The biggest complaint most people have is that they don’t have enough time.
Right now everyone has been given the gift of time but how are you going to use it?
It’s time to get off autopilot and ask yourself some questions. What do you actually desire to create in your lives? Until you ask the question, “If I could truly create anything as my future, what would it be?” you will never know what it is you desire. When you give yourself permission to ask, you begin to clarify what is true for you.
Here is a little tip. What is true for you makes you feel lighter. What is not true for you makes you feel heavier. As you begin to look at what you desire, everything that lights you up and makes you happy is true for you. Take action on those things.
Start every day with gratitude
Gratitude changes everything. When the world is in a state of turmoil, and while most people are focusing on crisis, it can be difficult to focus on the good. Yet, choosing gratitude for the gifts in your life will keep you positive and moving forward. Start writing down a list of things you are grateful for and keep going!
I have a challenge for you: write down 100 things you are grateful for, starting today!
Also when you wake up every morning, ask, “Universe, show me something beautiful!”
Move your body
Bodies love to move. Different types of movement are fun for different bodies. What movement does your body enjoy? Perhaps it’s dancing, running, yoga or something no one has heard of. Doesn’t matter how you move, just move!
While it can be easy to sit on the couch watching Netflix during this time of social distancing and quarantine, body movement does wonders for resetting you!
The tumultuous time we are in is affecting all of us. One thing that we always have, regardless of what is going on in the world, regardless of what others are doing, is choice and your choice is a powerful thing. Your choice changes things. Your choice creates.
You can choose panic and fear or you can choose possibilities. Is it time to hit the reset button and start living greater than ever before? What have you always known or at least hoped was possible? Is now the time to choose it?
