Here are some important tips that help you maintain a healthy mind and body for the duration of this confinement.
Overload on information
An overload on information can generate a lot of anxiety.
To take care of ourselves, we would have to avoid being on TV all day listening to news about the coronavirus.
We only inform ourselves at a specific time of the day that we have previously chosen. That could be the news in the morning, in the afternoon or at night, but only once a day. The rest of the day we better do activities that are not related to this topic.
For example, try to focus your attention on things that make you grow the seed of calmth and having a good heart.
You can choose YouTube videos, nature, meditation, documentaries for personal growth, films to increase awareness …
Here we offer you several links, we will continue passing on ideas in the coming days.
Keep a positive attitude
How we can transform each situation into a positive approach, it is easy, you just need to practice.
For example we have run out of napkins, we can always use another type of paper that does a similar function … this is looking for positivity with creativity and patience.
I once heard from my teacher Gen Tharpa that when we patiently accept we bring heaven to earth, and when we are in reaction and struggle we create the opposite.
Get a routine
Try to make a plan for yourself, get organized, and do moment by moment what you set out to do, that will keep you focused and in the present with all your active potential.
For example tidying up the room, cleaning, fixing something, cooking a recipe with creativity, writing a letter, an interesting reading … etc.
I add a link about the routine, very interesting.
