It is daunting all the bad news. People are frightened and people are panicking. In some ways lives are falling apart. Times are serious, people are losing their lives, health, employment and so much more. We are living in seemingly helpless times. There are things we can do.
Please relax a moment and calm your spirits while you consider a few helpful points.
The news helps us to be aware of what is going on. It can be helpful.
A current virus sounds very threatening and many precautions are in place to keep people safe. Listen to the governmental authorities.
Some things you can do while there may be some caous such as taking a walk getting fresh air and sunshine. Breathe deep. Use our lungs.
Catch up on some rest or take a nap. If you have a yard, work in the yard get it looking extra good.
Go thru last seasons clothes. Give away what did not work for you.
It is a great time to start reading again. Psalm Chapter 94 is very comforting.
Learn to cook a new ethnic food.
Grow your own vegetables. Growing vegetables is satisfying.
Start doing wood crafts or sewing. You will be happy. Really happy. Knit a top or take up painting landscapes. It is time to be refreshed.
Practicing good clean up after yourself habits and routines can give us a measure of control.
I actually am trying to get well after pneumonia and everything has fallen behind. Still working on recovery so the exhaustion is discouraging. Thankfully it is not covid. I was under general anesthesia and got pnomonia. It almost killed me just the same. A very scary painful ordeal. Thankfully I have a great doctor whom is helping me get better.
Small jobs done every little bit is making a difference. I am literally way behind in everything and wonder how I will ever catch up. Today I went into the smallest room and cleaned the bathroom. A clean bathroom just makes you feel good.
There is so much we can not control in this world, yet, being safe, following guidelines, practicing habits and routines we can possibly get thru this with our mind in tact.
There is much to be concerned about In this world. Practical suggestions employed will give you a measure of protection and peace. What I am suggesting is including joyous activies in your daily life How much more incontrol you will be and with joy.
