Tips On Overcoming Anxiety When You Feel COVID-19 Has Stifled Your Dreams For the Upcoming 2020 Year!

8 Ways In Moving and Navigating The Anxiety, In Order To Overcome It During COVID-19!

As many of us have noticed that our 2020 plans have come to a halt, the lingering of uncertainty awaits. Its the fear of not knowing when this end, that is causing a silent panic among many people. Tensions are rising up and people are becoming restless. There is no certain time period that is listed for this international pandemic to be over. Its the uncertainty, which is leading people to worry.

No one expected this! After all, 2020 was supposed to be our big year. The year of change. The era of new love, improved love, self-love, and levelin’ up. This was the year where everything we worked so hard for was to come into fruition. We were planning for our next trip. Its the year to take our trips with family and friends. The new dream job, and the list goes on. And, yet, who is to say that some of these things cannot happen?

One of the positives (and yes, there are always positive things happening, even in times such as these) in regards to this current pandemic, is how it is forcing humanity to stop in stillness. In these current times, there is underground work taking place in acknowledgement and appreciation. Clearly, a great portion of humanity has taken on a down cycle in protecting life’s treasures. Her natural treasures and her spiritual ones. We have simply become, too busy! Too busy for life. Too busy for family. Too busy for ourselves! Which means that once we start de-valuing life, there is a pause, that takes place. A necessary pause, in order to appreciate it, once more. This is that time. Yet, being on pause mode doesn’t mean that we cannot continue the cycle of creative production and productivity. In fact, here are a few tips, which ensures that we continue to work through our anxiety, in anticipation for the beautiful times, ahead!

1. Positive Songs Of Inspiration

There are certain songs that have the power to eradicate sorrow. It doesn’t matter how intense the pain one is feeling. Upon hearing that song, there is a feeling that titillates our very Souls, once we come in contact with its aura. It literally, blows our pain away. After all, we can not create, unless we start to feel good! Let music bring those feelings to task.

2. Exercise

Just think how much better you are going to feel once this is all over. How you are going to glow! Use this inside time to shape and sculpt your body in the way, you have always wanted. This is a period to check in with self-care, and exercise is one of them.

3. Verbal Release

One of the best ways of getting through anxiety, is to very discuss it. Just remember that toxic energy spreads, and grows, when it remains in secret. When it remains, hidden! Verbal communication allows it to release that energy. And, its definitely alright to communicate, even if its with, ourselves.

Our anxieties during this time are also alarming us to what we are putting inside our bodies. Now, is the best time to treat our systems as reflective of nature. Clearly, nature is telling us something. Maybe, its time that we start to mirror her. That includes, eating her fruits and vegetation for a healthier life.

5. Daily Habits Of Meditation

Meditation gets us centered. Even when we feel our lives are anxious, and spiraling out of control during this time, it gets us, centered. Sometimes we can get stuck in our heads with confusion and tales of ” life being over.” Get to your core, and flourish from, within!

6. Write Down Your Goals For This Year!

So, yes! You may have to alter your 2020 plans a little bit. That doesn’t mean that such plans can not be completed. What dreams can you continue to work on, from home? There are many things a person can do, online, or off. Getting to working on those dreams, and make them a reality for this year!

7. Strengthen Family Bonds and Old/New Friendships

One of the beauties of this time, is that there is time to check up on family. There is time to call old friends, that we have not spoken to in a while. It feels good knowing that those emotional safe havens and connections are, there! Plan a game night over Zoom, and just enjoy those, good times!

8. Zoom Travels

So, you were not able to travel this year. Do you know of any people, currently in the places, where you want to travel? Why not have an international Zoom party? Dress up if you can. Cook if you can. And allow your travel eyes anticipate what you will see once this is all over!

As with any crisis, anxiety is sure to happen. Nevertheless, we can always conquer it, by staying in healthy forms of movement. Allowing it to linger within our very Being actually prolongs it. Which means moving through it, ensures we will lose it. Speaking it to where it no longer impacts us, is key. These current times are simply ways of teaching us how to be creative. And, yes, in mental wellness, there are ways of being, creative!
