Please do not feel that you have to deny your feelings - let them flow for a while and hear your real fears and tears

Your fears themselves will not hurt you and it's good for your body and immune system to express them - for a while - even better write them out in a journal where they will STAY FOR GOOD and bother you less. Are you worried that you may get the COVID 19 virus?

Then understand what's going on in your mind and body

It's natural to feel anxious at this really challenging time.
We are wired up to keep us safe when we are in DANGER = your natural fight or flight reaction = adrenaline release fired by your Amygdala in your brain - with the resulting physical responses in the body which would keep us safe if we were attacked by a lion. NO LIONS!
We DON'T run and we DON'T use up the adrenaline so this stress hormone (plus cortisol) builds up in our body so next time we feel stressed this next rush of adrenaline adds to that already there - HEY PRESTO I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO BURST!

At the same time our immune system is suppressed as it's not so important when we are running for our life. More stress = less immunity.

What keeps the anxiety running? Normal thoughts become invasive thoughts due to the adrenaline and cortisol inside you. 
What are your intrusive thoughts which are bugging you? 
Fear that you will loose your business/house, Ashamed that you did not have your back up plan, Guilt for how this is affecting those around you, Sadness for those who are dying, Hurt because of what it feels like the government has done to us all? Where have those feelings come from? 

    

12 tips to help you work through these tough times

1. Be Really Really honest with yourself about the feelings which are driving you ... but then it's probably other unexpected feelings too. Write them ALL down. For instance a feeling of anger is often in response to a feeling of hurt or deep sadness. Let the feelings out - "Let the bear roar". You can do this in a safe place away from everyone. Maybe outside on a walk.

2. Keep releasing those thoughts out of your head and write how you feel in a journal. Explore themes and new AHA! moments.
What are the opportunities which may be opening up for me?
A new start?

3. Create new positive messages for yourself to keep a positive mind-set. See my positive messages in my second COVID 19 blog

4. Meditation, mindfulness and rest will all help your situation.

5. Allow someone you trust to support you and share how you feel. Don't expect them to solve things - simply listen and be there for you - and give you a hug. Why spend time with people who drain you or criticise you? Keeping time with these people to a minimum - even members of your family - will help you now.

6. Find the right combination of supplements to counteract the effects on your brain.  Your brain will have been on overload for quite a while even before you realised what was going on. 
Multivitamins, Magnesium, 5HTP, WellBeingBlend of Aromatherapy essential oils to relax you, herbs, ASEA can all help and I explain how using my Biochemistry knowledge.

     
Keeping YOU at the top of your priority list 

 7. Unwind those sub-conscious reactions.  We can use simple the tapping EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) at home. This helps to "kick start" the commitment we need to "reclaim" ourselves and  the recovery we are searching for.
What are your new priorities which are being highlighted at this time? What are you realising does not matter so much - and what matters more?

8. Exercising regularly helps us remove the adrenaline and stress hormone cortisol from the body.

9. WHY are you thinking that it's all gone down the pan? Think about a time when you got through the other side of a CRISIS before?
What are your resources NOW?
STOP your own expectations of yourself and be REAL with this situation.
It's simply not as bad as you are making out.
HOW can you simply life?
What are your ACTUAL OUTGOINGS which need to be paid and is there a way to spread these out?
Ask for help from relevant people. They may be able to give you a break.
Write this all out in your journal.

10. Bring yourself back to NOW as now is the only place where we can make those changes.
Bring yourself into your body with the reassuring sense of touch - simply stroke your arm and say 'I LOVE ME'. See my self massage tips.
At the same time make every thought positive and caring for you. This really does work and there is enough information out there which confirms this.

11. Imagine and clearly define your best life/situation and you will start to make different choices in life aligned with your new picture. Don't worry about how this will happen; simply start to take baby steps in that direction and you are doing something positive about where you are NOW. Open to a little magic? See my Golden Circle exercise.

   

 

 

This is all making sense and I think I can see my way forward 

12. Talking to someone helps us to crystallise our thoughts and what is really important to us. If you don't know anyone who you feel is able to help maybe I can offer my services to you. Life will not be quite the same again AND this could well be an OPPORTUNITY for you rather than the terrible thing that it feels like now.

There's lots we can do it's about finding the commitment and space to start off the process. It's widely known now that it takes 21 days to create and keep a good habit/routine so it sticks as a part of our life.
As we get insights into where it all came from... and it's not necessarily this virus situation... we are able to take away the power of these thoughts and feelings which are causing this anxiety which are messing us up. 

We are always helped by thinking thoughts full of love and heartfelt appreciation for ourselves. 

YES we can all do this - even if, at first we don't believe it, thinking loving thoughts will short circuit those critical wounding thoughts you are having now. Feel strong inside and let those around you think what they want to think - cos we are feeling good about ourselves.
