The #1 Thing To Do Now

The #1 Thing To Do Now

In these crazy times, we have a drive and desire to stay informed.
We want to know if things are getting better or worse, if the lock-down orders are extending or lifting, and if everything is going to be o.k.

Being plugged into the news is addictive and harmful to your well being.
Would you like to know why?
It’s because your brain is perfectly designed to protect the multi-millennia old you.

That’s right – your brain is confusing the danger of the virus and global restrictions with a saber tooth tiger chasing you. Because that’s what it’s designed to do – to keep you safe at all costs. And unfortunately, our biology hasn’t really caught up to the modern world.

So, we are all on red alert for danger like never before…and your brain is CRAVING the constant updates to know whether or not you’re safe.

It can be truly paralyzing. I always think that knowing a bit of science and how it dictates your emotions is helpful so you can have a better sense of control.

My best advice for you is to stay MINIMALLY INFORMED.
Know what you need to know and turn off the rest. And remember that news channels are competing for your attention, so the more scary and
dramatic they can present their stories, the better for them.

Next time you’re feeling anxious through all of this, just remember the truth of what’s happening biologically and in regard to creating intentional hysteria – then turn off the news, get out and feel the sunshine, listen to the birds. Do things that make you feel good, not things that get you freaked out. It’s good to feel good and you are in control of this on a moment to moment basis.

Remember your breathing, your mantras, to be grateful for who you are with, and all the safety and comfort you have all around you. And also remember that this to shall pass.

We got this.

    great advice. The TV sucks me in and it is very stressful. And then I eat popcorn. The microwave kind. Really bad stuff. I am not turning TV on tonight.
