Mindfulness & COVID-19
To say that COVID-19 is an emotional roller coaster is an understatement. That’s because there’s a very real existential fear and uncertainty as we charter into this new and unmarked territory of life. There is also the added pressure of being productive and staying positive while we are in quarantine. Although the idea of staying positive may seem far fetched especially now, it can be achieved with a good mindfulness practice.
The truth is, what we think is. Therefore, since we cannot predict what is going to happen next, we should not try. Rather than let your mind continue playing a constant chatter of worry on a loop, consider how mindfulness can help you stop it. Mindfulness not only allows you to cope with your emotions, it can also help you stay focused, calm and in the moment.
