The past year has been a time of nonstop disintegration, regeneration and destabilizing institutions that we have often taken for granted. Yet throughout history, doomsday events are often followed during times of spiritual awakening.
When we trust almost everything, we get two options. We can either fall into despair, despair, and resignation – and all the paralysis and morale that comes with it – or we can dig deeper and find the truths and values that sustain us.
Instead of worrying and worrying, find an alternative that feeds your soul. We see that a trend is going on that people are starting new hobbies, reading new books, trying new activities. The way your neurons are fired is how they will be wired. So don’t get stuck thinking, “How can I react to this global disruption?” Instead, think outside the box and say, “What am I going to do to strengthen myself and those around me?”
These steps are to help you find peace between quarantine and chaos:
1. Bond and Brain: Focus on the people and experiences you love and connect with them. Dedicate extra time to talk with your family and friends, strengthen bonds, address new ideas, initiate joint projects and brainstorm together.
3. Conclusions from Conclusions: Knowledge is usually power, but not that it just causes our concern. If our media consumption leads us to feel depressed, angry, anxious or frustrated, then it is time to improve our habits. Reduce the amount of all this disturbance, because it is just filling us with all kinds of information that does not necessarily help. Avoid “doom-scrolling” and biased political or sensational and conspiracy theory platforms and sites. And by all means avoid getting sucked into arguments and non-productive disagreements.
3. Connecting CALM: Get out of your way to develop new friendships and connections. See and hear opportunities to comfort others, share burdens, and learn. Ask older people who have endured difficult trials in their lives related to their experiences. Look for opportunities to serve others, and to build community around areas of common interest.
4. Protect yourself: Schedule time each day – especially when you wake up and before you fall asleep – meditate, listen to calming music, or read something soothing and inspiring. Be the gatekeeper on your senses. Remember, you and you alone control what is in your domain. Everything you experience affects you for good or bad. So keep in mind that only thoughts and feelings in your life are monogamous rather than monogamous, love instead of seclusion, harmony instead of conflict, order rather than chaos.
5. The Moment The Being The Moment: Think about what we are doing through a frame of the film. Yes, it is a disturbing frame, but it is not the end of the film. This is not the end of the story. What will be the next chapter? Just don’t be reactive and feel like a victim. Take control of your destiny and say, “How would I like to transform myself into a transition for my children?” Remember, we are teaching our loved ones how we deal with adversity.
While we have no control over events happening outside of ourselves, we have complete control over what is happening on our own: what our attitudes are; What message we will give to our children, families and friends; How well and how honorably we behave during this unprecedented time; New skills and strengths – perhaps still lying dormant within us – will emerge.
