Living Proactively Against COVID-19

Updated: Mar 19, 2020

I would have been remiss if I neglected to include a post about COVID-19 and the chaos it's poured across the world. The WHO has declared it's a pandemic, and the world is adapting to a different way of living. As we get used to this change, it's important to prevent anxiety from overtaking our bodies. Even as gyms and health clubs close their doors, it's our responsibility as a community to stay ACTIVE. There are a plethora of fitness apps geared towards different levels and types of exercise (maybe even trying chair yoga!). To prevent us from going crazy during this time, I would recommend building a daily schedule. Allow 20-30 minutes of outdoor time, 10-15 minutes of stretching and keeping your joints/ligaments loose, and treat your home as if it were an office. We can all stay sane, and prevent the manifestation of fear!

Drink herbal teas, spend some time outdoors (connect with the earth's vibrations), keep your vitamin and mineral levels high (vitamin C, B, D, zinc, calcium, magnesium), include 1-2 cups of dark leafy green vegetables 3x a day, and, most importantly, keep a positive mindset!

"And the people stayed home, and read books, and listened and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed." - Kitty O'Meara

Do you ever wonder why certain days in our memory stand out more than others? One variable boils down to the body's tactile memory and imprint of the environment we were surrounded by. Sensory stimu
