I would give some thoughts about the world these days and how we go through our days. With the COVID 19 virus going around the globe and the fear that is produced by media creates a dangerous path for the whole of humanity. Fear is a low energy that breaks down your immune system, which makes you more susceptible to this virus or any other illness. Why is this fear so much more damaging than the fears we usually feel? In my opinion, it is because we get overstimulated by the adverts, conversations and scare reports of newspapers and tv. Gathering information is fine as long as you shut down from the continuous stream of depressive news information, death numbers, infection numbers etc. What it does is keep you in a state of fear and anxiety. If you are already suffering from health anxiety or anxiety in general, it can cause mental health issues in the long run. I have to admit in the beginning of the (known) outbreak. I got in a state of searching for answers. I kept looking online and watched the news checking for updates. It gets in your subconscious and creates a state of fight or flight. That started to worry me, and I stopped watching the news and reading online about it.
Your mind is your enemy when you are in a state of fear. I will keep myself informed about what is going only once a day. The rest of the time, I am working on my mental wellbeing. Meditation and listening to music that gives you a sense of freedom. (reiki music or meditation music will do well) Being sensible about the virus and how you can keep safe is all you have to do. There is no need for all the scaring and fear. Your mind matters just as much as the rest of your health. Stay safe and be mindful.
