No-one wants a crisis, especially like the one the world is having at present. However, life can be full of ups and downs so if a crisis of any kind happens you can choose to use it to learn something about yourself and those around you.
The first one would be to know how you would deal with any kind of crisis, whether it’s personal or professional. Can you stay calm and look at the situation objectively to see if you can find a solution or are you going to have anxiety?
If you’re not sure how you would react this is a really great time to look inward. Hopefully you will never have to go through another pandemic like the one we’ve been going through but this will tell you a lot about yourself and also other people in your life.
- How have you dealt with the C19 virus situation?
- Did you have enough savings to last 6 months if your job or business didn’t bring in any income?
- If not, what have you learned that you need to do when things get back to normal so it doesn’t happen again?
- If you have children at home, have you managed to cope without feeling you are going out of your mind?
- If you’re a single Mom with a job and kids at home and you now don’t have help, how did you cope with this?
- If you’re married how have you found it with both you and your partner at home? Are you on the brink of divorce or has this time
drawn you closer.
- If you live alone, have you found yourself feeling anxious or have you found a way to relax? Maybe doing meditation or yoga!
I don’t know your situation so this is just a few examples of things you could take a look at to see if you need to change a behavior or the way you think or anything else.
I’ve learned over the years to let go of fear so it’s very rare for me to have that feeling in any kind of situation anymore. However during this time I discovered that being 79 with COPD and living alone can be very frightening, especially if I continually went on social media where fear runs high and if I listened to everyone I should never go beyond my front door
My solution; first that I wasn’t going to live my life filled with fear, then to limit social media, especially Facebook, to only twice a day and I also got one of those gadgets that I clip onto the waistband of my pants where I can press a button that immediately takes me to 911 just in case I can’t reach my phone. I added one more thing. I decided if I followed protocol and did social distancing I could go anywhere I wanted within reason so that’s what I’ve been doing.
I’ve been thinking about my loyal readers. I would love to know how everyone has been during this time and how it might have impacted you emotionally and/or financially. If you feel like dropping me a line, I’d love to hear from you.
In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy and remember to breathe. Deep breathing is very good to stop anxiety and decrease stress.
‘Til Next Time
Have a healthy week
Live With Abundance
