YES! We are facing great uncertainties on all levels, given the pandemic called Coronavirus. There is fear, hysteria, but there is also support, love and togetherness. And just like that, there is a whole new level of distress and panic in the society, which at the same time is creating a lot of interesting experiences for people. The economy is expected to crash, experts say. The question that most of us I guess are asking is, “What does one really do in times like this?” Many people don’t know whether they should stay put or travel, go back home if they are expats or stay in their country of residence, whether they should change things in their business, cancel things, close down, what is ethical and acceptable etc.
Keeping this in mind I have put together some tips to help you tackle Coronavirus chaos in a mindful way. These simple practices will help you approach this period of uncertainty from a place of objectivity and not give in to fear and panic.
Firstly, I believe IT IS YOUR OBLIGATION to keep busy, to keep working and to keep contributing to the economy and society. Now is the time to get busy with planning, starting a new business, doing preparation work for your current business, and making new plans for your life and financial abundance. Giving into fear and anxiety around money will not help anyone! There are always great opportunities to be found in every downfall, so make use of this time wisely!
- Stay Calm – Trust in the order of life
This is probably the most important thing you can do for yourself and others in this time. There is no need to give in to the panic that’s currently consuming a lot of people, as it won’t improve the situation. Instead simply trust and believe that the Universe has your back. When you’re calm, you have more control over the situation and can make better decisions.
- Practice meditation
Being mindful can go a long way in times like this. Simply sit in a seated position in a place you feel comfortable at your home, close your eyes, take a deep breath and go inward. Try and observe whatever is going on within, but don’t react to it. Stay still. Do this for 5-15mins everyday, morning and evening. Offer thank you to the Universe/God before ending the practice.

- Move your body
I cannot stress enough on the importance of being active. An active body means better immunity and a healthier mind. This is the best time to practice on your “practice” – if you’re into Yoga. (PS. You can join my online 20 hour-Yoga foundations course if you want to work on your practice, which is completely home-based and will give you lifetime value)
If Yoga is not your thing and a hardcore gym session is what you like, you can join some online workouts and Youtube videos, one of my favorite online coaches is Zuzka Light.
If you have not started on your fitness journey yet, this is a good time to start one. Start with a basic home workout routine. Start small, 15-20mins everyday and work your way up.
- Stick to your routine
You may be working from home and the temptation to stay in your pyjamas in bed all day is very very high. Tempting as this may be, do not give into this and let it become your new norm. Instead stick to your routine, wake up at the same time as you’re used to, take a shower, change into a fresh pair of out clothes, make a list and work through it. Eat your meals on time. Go for a walk, if this is allowed in your country. Listen to stuff that is uplifting and motivating. Invest this extra time in learning something you have always wanted to learn. In-short do not let your mind be idle.
- Be realistic, don’t be dramatic
Now is not the time to be dramatic. But be realistic, practice safety hygiene and be a cooperating citizen of the country. Try and stay in a place of calm, love, togetherness and empathy. This way you will keep your vibration high and thus invoke positive vibes in people around you. Eventually this will help in lifting the vibration of the Universe.
- Prepare for a new business, a new plan, your future reality and dreams
There is no better time than now so start preparing for what is to come in a couple of months. Preparation is everything. Maybe you have always dreamed of becoming a Yoga teacher, an online coach, starting a lifestyle business as such. NOW is the time. More and more businesses will start doing things online, and with people’s vibration shifting, there will be a bigger need for education in the spiritual/self-development field. It is my firm belief that businesses which contribute to humanity, have a bigger chance of thriving in the coming years.
