Don’t Let COVID-19 Coronavirus Keep You Up At Night
COVID-19 Coronavirus presents people in Rhode Island and Massachusetts with a dilemma. Both states have declared states of emergency: the public health risk is real. But we also have the challenge of managing our emotions – going about our lives – during the crises.
I created this 17-18 minute video to help my clients and others navigate the line between action and complacency while maintaining emotional balance. It is a “hypnotic meditation” video so will require your full attention where you will not be disturbed. Everything it suggests in terms of action is meant to be consistent with CDC guidelines as of March 10/11 2020. Please let me know in the comment section whether you find it useful.
Does just looking at the cabin picture above make you a little nervous? Or does thinking about your vacation flight have you anxious instead of excited? Or even worse are you considering cancelling your flight plans this year?
If so, this workshop is for you.
These principles apply to New Year’s Resolutions, but also to anytime you want to bring a new possibility into reality.
And please let me know if I can be of help.
Like to make it an even Happier Thanksgiving Day this year? Then take a moment to practice what I call Thanks-GETTING.
So, why not take just a moment to GET that the glass really is more than half full. Likely much more when you think about it a little.
I saw this box on an episode of Fargo and just had to get it to share with clients – what a perfect metaphor for addiction or destructive habits. It applies equally to the alcoholic, person with a problem with drugs, compulsive over-eater as well as to the gambler, “shopaholic”, nail biter, hair puller, pornography or sex addict. The common definition of addiction or destructive habits of “doing the same thing over and over expecting something different.”
If this short video is at all familiar to you and you are “sick and tired of being sick and tired”, you may well be at what is called the Jumping off Point – the place at which the pain of the behavior has finally outweighed any pleasure.
Others call it (paradoxically) The Gift of Desperation.
If so it may be time to consider something radical such as a residential treatment program, new licensed therapist or even calling your friendly neighborhood hypnotist.
In the meantime, keep watching the video and thinking about your behavior until you get there.
