Our plan is as follows:
1. Panic + Fear Don’t Help
Anxiety and panic, both are strange beasts born from fear.
We all understand that fear is the oldest survival mechanism we have. But it doesn’t always help us. Most of the time, fear keeps us stuck.
Being fueled by uncertainty, anxiety is contagious. There are lots of examples of people focusing on the negative and panicking right now.
Our own anxiety can be triggered simply by talking to someone who is anxious. Their fearful words are emotionally infecting us and we’re letting worry abut this coronavirus control our life.
Fear is only as powerful as you make it. You can always choose to let go of fear on a personal level and with immediate effect.
We can choose to live in fear and panic, or we can choose to find peace.
This video will help you release anxiety and fearful expectation and wanting to fit into fear and anxiety
Note: If you want to jump in, releasing process starts at minute 09:00.
Releasing anxiety is an essential ingredient for a healthy lifestyle and adopting it can help improve your overall emotional and physical well-being.
2. Ignoring + Isolating Don’t Heal
Isolation prevents physical spread. . .
. . .but it doesn’t Heal the larger situation.
Many of us have vulnerable people to protect and my heart goes out to you all. Yes, it is our personal responsibility to ensure we don’t spread the virus. And I’m encouraging everyone to wash their hands, socially distance, and follow best practices to protect the health and wellbeing of themselves, their family, and our community at large.
But that action is coming from the place of Love, not fear. We’re doing this for others — for everyone’s highest and best good.
3. Interrupt Thought Spirals
Anxiety can come from all the “worst-case-what-if” scenarios and stories we start telling ourselves in our heads. Most of them are just theories and none of them are actual facts.
One of the powerful questions to break the anxiety cycle is to ask yourself:
Is it actually here now, or is it just a thought and a memory?
Part of the amazing part of being a human is that we’re aware of our thoughts. And you have the ability to notice that they’re just thoughts and sounds in your head.
4. Detox From The News
Keep things in perspective. Limit worry and agitation by lessening the time you spend watching, reading, or listening to upsetting media coverage.
I used to work for big media for years and I know we’re guilty of sensationalizing things and focusing on the worst impacts on the coronavirus.
You’ll want to keep informed — especially if you have loved ones in affected countries — but remember to focus on the things that are positive in your life and things you have control over.
Get your information only from reliable sources and don’t take any information you see on social media as fact. The last thing we want to do is spread misinformation about the virus on social media.
Remember, anxiety is contagious. Everything in your immediate reality is fine but it turns out really bad when you watch the news. You can start to feel stressed and worried even though you’re physically and emotionally fine
Stop taking on negative
At this exact time, we want to be mindful for everyone’s highest and best good.
In light of the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, I recommend checking the World Health Organization’s website for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
5. Stay In The Moment
The future can be scary, but the truth is, it is completely unknown. In fact, even the future is just a story we’ve told ourselves.
Take a deep breath and allow yourself to be. Notice, at this very second, all is well. You have peace available to you within you. Take advantage to rest in and as that.
This video will help you to release expectation and dread in the imagine future.
Note: The releasing process starts at minute 02:19.
6. Be Mindful Of Your Assumptions About Others and Yourself
Someone who has a cough or a fever does not necessarily have coronavirus. Self-awareness is important in not stigmatizing others in our community.
7. Remember: Everything is Impermanent
When the unexpected and unwanted occurs, remind yourself that everything is impermanent.
Everything is subject to constant change.
Nothing is permanent, even if it makes the appearance of being safe.
Relationships develop and break up.
Savings accounts are opened and banks go bankrupt.
Children grow up and leave their parents.
Jobs change and people are born and die.
Changing circumstances are the most normal thing in the world. That’s exactly how we should see it, as it’s always only the circumstances that change.
We, however, always stay the same. We are always ourselves. We have existed since eternal times. The True Self never changes.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj said:
When we have understood this, we don’t fear changes in our lives. We take every moment the way it is and act accordingly, as only what’s in the now is real. Remembering this will move you out from suffering into the Love that you are.
8. Learn a Powerful Instant-healing Tool
Be a healing force for yourself, your loved ones, and the planet. Healing already exists all around us as a field, and inside of us, and it’s working way beyond what we know with our local minds.
Reset your resonance for immunity.
We’re all in this together, whether we know it or not!
9. Focusing This Space On Positivity and Inspiration
We need to keep our minds and bodies healthy by staying positive.
I know most of you are VERY SLOW right now — which means you can use this time to catch up on training, courses, or books.

10. Working Remotely, Connecting Digitally
My team is continuing to work normal business hours and has the resources and tools they need to do their jobs remotely.
Even though most of us are working remotely, keeping a connection is important. Maintaining social networks can help maintain a sense of normalcy, and provide valuable outlets for sharing feelings and relieving stress.
11. Practice Gratitude
What is that already perfect
Can I allow myself to be grateful for that?
It’s so easy to start focusing on how hard everything is right now, but remember to stop and be thankful that we have so many resources available to us.
If you interrupt the pattern of anxiety and notice what is actually here now, it starts to dissolve and you can take your power back.
Give yourself a break from worrying about things you can’t control by anchoring yourself into gratitude.
12. Talk to a Healing Coach
I’m still here to support you with releasing coaching. The health and well-being of my clients, team, and community are of utmost importance to me and will continue to be my north star as we navigate the road ahead.
If you feel really out of control, I invite you to book your complimentary session with me.
Having a healing coach to help you release your fear and panic in this challenging time can be really helpful to manage your coronavirus anxiety.
I’ll be in touch very soon as I have a few thoughts for releasing videos brewing which I hope will keep us productive and proactive so that our life and business remain in great shape for the year ahead.
Thank you for your steadfast support for yourself and others—I am truly grateful.
