If you are feeling anxious about COVID-19, we get it. We’re feeling it, too. That’s why we’ve partnered with the award-winning mindfulness app Stop, Breathe & Think, to help support you and your family during this time of rising stress and worry. A link to download the app and get one month of premium features for free is at the bottom of this post.
Find your inner safe space.
Everyone wants to have a sense that we can relax and feel safe. But sometimes life, with all its stressors, can make us feel like we might not always have that. The good thing is, we can use our imagination to get a break from those stressors.
>> Watch Safe House Chill Pill to create your own safe space.
Keep your attention focused on the ‘small.’
It’s easy to feel powerless about what’s happening around us, which can then spin into worry about the things we can’t control. Through one subtle shift in perspective, we can begin to focus on the micro-moments in our day of the things we do indeed have control over.
>> Try Sitting to Standing as a way to bring your attention back to precisely this moment.
>> Listen to Progressive Muscle Relaxation to ease the tension in your body.
>> Brew a cup of tea and watch the guided Moment: Drinking Tea activity to find a sense of ease.
Become more present and grounded.
When the stress starts to mount, take a little time to get grounded. These tracks help bring your awareness back to what’s actually happening right now rather than get lost in the worry of what might happen.
Practice feeling compassion.
As part of the preparedness efforts, many experts are recommending that we stay closer to home and avoid social activities. Yet, feeling connected to others is an effective way to alleviate feelings of anxiety and worry. How can we cultivate feelings of connection now?
>> Listen to Kindness to send positive vibes to others, especially those who may be deeply impacted by the shift in our daily lifestyles.
>> Try Sending & Receiving for those you love and can’t be near right now.
