As we continue to live under social distancing we learn that so much of our experience during the coronavirus lockdown is a matter of our own perspective and choice. While we’re home we have a great opportunity to decide:
WHO DO I WANT TO BE DURING COVID-19?
Since Mid-March we’ve seen movement through different stages of The New Normal. It’s up to us to avoid the Fear Zone – the natural first place for the Ego to go – and move right into Learning and Growth.
What zone are you in?
Hoard food, toilet paper and medicines I don’t need.
I complain all the time.
Transmit my anger and fear related emotions to others.
Forward all messages to others.
I stop compulsively consuming things that harm me, from food to news.
I start letting go of things that are out of my control.
I identify my emotions.
I make myself aware of the situation and think about the best way to act.
I verify information before I share it.
I acknowledge everyone is trying their best.
Find a purpose.
I think of how I can help others.
Use my skills to service the ones in need.
I show empathy to myself and others.
I live in the present and focus on the future.
I keep myself emotionally happy and transmit hope.
I show gratefulness.
I find ways to adapt to changes
I practice calmness, patience, relationships and creativity.
