How are you?

Right now, it is a good time to check in with yourself. How are you?

Psycho/Social:

  • Family support. Right now with the Coronavirus, we need to make extra effort to keep in touch with family members. How are your relationships?
  • Keep a positive attitude. “We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same. – Carlos Castaneda
  • Perseverance. The pandemic might make you feel “down and depressed.” Right now, more than ever, it’s important to take care of yourself and your loved ones. Never give up!
  • Help people. Can you find one way to help people? Donate food, donate money to an organization, or volunteer.

Physical:

  • Exercise. Do yoga, walk, jump rope, dance, lift weights, or use exercise machines. Do you exercise every day?
  • Eat well and take vitamins. Make sure to take vitamin D.

Mental/Emotional:

  • “Go with the flow.” Be in the present moment. Learn to let go of your thoughts.
  • Share your feelings with someone that you trust. Create strong kinships and bonds. Do you express your love?
  • Laugh. Have a sense of humor. Watch funny movies.
  • Reduce your time on social media. Don’t get trapped!

Spiritual:

  • Pray or meditate every day. It is important to connect with your inner self and the divine. How do you feel about God (or the divine) lately?
  • Keep in touch with your church or spiritual center. Attend services each week (online or in person). As a group, we can be there for each other in challenging times.

Namaste, world.
