Right now, we all feel a lot of chaos in our lives. Between what is going on in the world surrounding the pandemic, the working from home, unemployment, becoming the teacher you never wanted to be – and let’s not forget a toilet paper shortage - we’ve all probably felt like we are not in control of our lives. That feeling is normal under these circumstances. I know I’ve felt the stress and just wanted to crawl back in bed and forget about it all for a while. And you know what, that’s okay to do. But, we can’t live in that realm forever, because we have to still live our best life. So, what do you do when all you want to do is…nothing? How do you make sure you stay healthy, while staying home?
Turn off the news –
The best thing, is to turn off the news and get off the chaos bandwagon. Not gonna lie. That is hard to do right now in a time when we crave connection. Social media helps us easily feel connected to people we miss, but it is so easy to get caught up in that news cycle of gloom and doom. My recommendation is to set a timer, and when it goes off, you get off the computer or phone, off Facebook or Twitter, and do something else. Play a game, you know the real kind with cards or that comes in a box with pieces and a gameboard. Build real connection with your family. And if you live alone, then at a minimum play a real game with a real live person. The internet is a great place, when you set limits.
Get outside –
Take a walk in nature if you can. If you live in the city and your parks are open, go to a park and get some fresh air. If you have a dog, they will love exploring a new location, too. If the weather permits, take off your shoes and socks and feel the grass or dirt beneath your feet. This is a concept known as “earthing” and it is thought that the connection with the Earth allows free electrons to be taken up into the body which helps your body deal with stress, improves sleep, and can even help reduce pain in just 30 minutes a day. Check out this book on Kindle https://amzn.to/3bO5fwo or in paperback https://amzn.to/3aOSb8P to learn more about earthing. And then I’d love to hear what you find when you try it.
Do something just for you –
This can be something as simple as just taking a relaxing bath with your favorite essential oils and some Epsom Salts. Or curling up with your favorite book and your favorite blanket in your favorite comfy chair with your favorite drink. It doesn’t matter what it is you do, just do something that allows you to relax and unwind.
