Once you listen to the news, you will only hear about terrible stories. It seems like viral transmission is getting worse by the day. Despite the lockdown measures implemented in various places, the problem still exists. Apart from infected individuals, millions of people also lost their jobs, and businesses ceased operations. The question now is, how does one maintain inner peace during a pandemic?
Pandemics can be stressful.
If you take all of these details seriously, it’s easy for you to feel bad. You can’t have inner peace. It’s even worse when you listen to projections about an upcoming recession that could have adverse effects. Although it’s essential to stay aware of what’s happening, you should still find a way to have inner peace. These tips might help you.
Understand that you can’t do anything to change the reality
You will feel bothered when you realise that these problems are out of control. However, when you start to accept reality, it will be better. You know that some things are beyond your control. You have to be patient in dealing with the situation and hope for the best.
If you still feel bothered because of what you view on social media, you can unplug for a while. Stop using your phone and use it again when you’re ready. Besides, it’s also a way of protecting your eyes. Since the lockdown, you probably spent more hours on your phone. If you continue doing so, you should at least use EMF protection as a shield against radiation produced by your phone.
Think about the progress
It might seem like the media is only talking about the grim reality; there are other things that continue to happen. If you look elsewhere, there’s good news that will make you feel better. For instance, you can read stories of people helping those who lost their jobs. You can also listen to the accounts of front-liners who did everything they could to make the most of what they have. You will feel hopeful once you know that positive things are happening all around the world.
Talk to the people you love
It’s even more challenging to have peace of mind when you think you’re alone. It’s time for you to reach out to the people you love. Let them know that you’re available if they need help. You’re probably not the only person going through a rough time. We need each other, and you have to do whatever you can to reach out to others.
Relax and stay positive
You can’t change a lot of things, but you can control how you think and feel. Choose to be positive and don’t let anything affect your mood. You will only have inner peace once you learn to tune things out. Although there seems to be no end in sight, we will get through this crisis together. There’s no crisis in human history that we didn’t overcome. We will survive this and come out as better people once everything is over.
This piece is not designed to make you feel ecstatic bliss in the midst of crisis nor help get rid of anxiety and fear. Instead, we put this together to help you experience this challenging moment with greater peace and clarity of mind.
