cri·sis (noun): a time of intense difficulty, trouble, or danger: the current economic crisis | a family in crisis
When times are difficult, we tend to put ourselves on the back burner. We sleep less and worry more.
While taking care of yourself feels like too much work right now, it's important that you make it a priority for your mental health.
Whether you're into guided mediation, prayer, or anything that allows you to connect with self, it's important that you don't neglect it. In times of difficulty, you need to connect with self more than ever.
Don't forget that meditation is for your soul, so if you neglect it, you're only doing yourself harm.
Meditation and prayer will give you a way to manifest peace, calm, and overall wellbeing.
Being active keeps your blood flowing and instantly relieves stress. During a crisis, it may be tempting to curl up in a ball and cry. Don't. Move around by going for walks, playing outside with your kids, or even cleaning the house.
It keeps the adrenaline going and can help distract your mind.
When things are tough, it's easy to feel guilty for being happy. If someone is sick or suffering, even smiling can make you feel bad. Don't fall into this sabotaging thought process.
Give yourself permission to feel joy and happiness.
You're allowed to live your life, even if everything around you seems to be falling apart. By avoiding the positive things, you can lead yourself into negative thinking or depression.
Journaling is an incredible way to understand difficult feelings and situations within yourself. By writing down how you're feeling, you can open your mind up for a clearer way of thinking.
You may find it easier to make hard decisions, and maybe understand your emotions better. You’ll be able to communicate in a much more effective way.
Self care is admitting that you cannot do it all. You aren't perfect and you cannot make magic happen. Be realistic about your abilities and don't put too much pressure on yourself.
Also, be realistic about the crisis itself. Should you be worrying? Don't stress about anything that hasn't happened. Doing so, puts yourself through the situation twice.
Use the extra time to do things that you don’t normally have time for:

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
