One of the most important things you can be doing right now to support yourself, your family, and your business is to be conscious of and try to maintain a positive mindset and attitude. Look for the beauty in things and stay in that arena. The reason why this is essential is that it helps to support your nervous system and keep you calm. When you’re calm and supported, your immunity is strong, and that’s what it’s all about. I want immunity for everybody.
Now, what do you do about all the scary stuff out there? I mean there’s a lot of it. To start with, T.V. news is probably the worst. I mean there’s a ton of drama there. They just keep going and going. And while it may be all true, we don’t need it in our face hour after hour.
If you’re absorbing that kind of fear over and over again, it puts you into a fear-based mindset. You’re operating out of the part of your brain that’s the fight, flight, freeze part, and that’s just pure reaction. It’s not a good place to be. In other words, what’s happening is that it’s shutting off the rest of your brain that does all the reasonable thought that could be supporting you right now.
What You Can Do to Help Maintain Positivity
In order to get out of this place of fear, I invite you to shut off the T.V. news. We don’t need to watch that. They keep the scary going because it keeps people engaged. When they keep people engaged, the ratings go up, and they can sell more advertising. We don’t need more advertising; we don’t need to support that stuff. So, we can let that go.
Now I do believe that you need to be well informed. The way I’m doing it is to read it in the morning. I don’t watch any videos, I just read. When I first get up, I do my yoga stretches and my meditation, have my breakfast, and then I have what I call my ‘Ten-minute news diet.’ I read the news for ten minutes. I read the things that I think might be important, and in ten minutes, I am informed and I shut it off. It’s done, and then I spend the rest of my day filling up with things that are positive, fulfilling, and uplifting.
That way, I have time to be creative and reach out to all of you and do all the things that I need to do. So, I invite you to step into that practice. See if it helps to support you better and get out of the fear-based side and into a positive focus. Look at where we’re going to come out of this and all the good things that are happening during this time because there is a lot of that as well.
I also invite you to take a look at the education we have on the website. There are a lot of free pieces tips and strategies you can find right now to help support you through this.
