Stay Safe, Relaxed & Healthy
At times like this, people are understandably nervous when someone around them coughs or sneezes. But even talking can spread infection.
You may have heard of the yoga practice called mauna, where a person consciously refrains from speaking.
It may sound easy, but many people have a very hard time not talking.
It is a relevant practice right now and it’s a nice feeling to not feel obligated to just talk and talk.
Spreading less germs is an added bonus.
Even though we’ve had to be apart, this pandemic has brought us together in many ways.
For example, we’ve had to care for one another in our fight against a common enemy.
Our emotions can overcome us during stressful times. A regular practice of cultivating inner peace can give you the strength you need during troubled times.
Sunshine, fresh air, and time alone in nature—a perfect prescription for when you’re feeling down.
Finding real purpose in life will give you a strong foundation to be able to cope with the ups and downs each day will surely bring.
Staying at home as much as possible has been useful to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
However one of the most powerful tools we have is to practice good hygiene.
Not only will that help us fight this virus but any other germs coming our way.
When it comes to maintaining your health, there is outer protection and inner protection.
Outer protection means doing everything you can to keep yourself from coming into contact with the virus.
Inner protection means strengthening your immune system and overall health in case you do end up exposed to illness.
I think lots of us are this happy to be playing on the beach again!
These have been uncertain times, especially for some parts of the world where Covid19 has hit harder. If there was ever a time to react to others in kindness, it’s now.
I’ve seen people trying to be safe by wearing masks while they’re jogging.
We should keep in mind that if we’re doing aerobic exercise and wearing a mask, we may not get 100% of our oxygen needs. So we may tire more quickly.
Consider walking instead, because it won’t compromise your oxygen needs. Or if you prefer to jog or cycle without a mask, try to find places with no people around.
But even then, have your mask available, just in case you unexpectedly come across a situation where you can’t avoid being around people.
