Are you prepared for any crisis? Do you know the most important survival skill you can have to survive any crisis?
In a previous post I mentioned that the first step you need to take in preparing for a crisis is having a plan. What I didn’t say is that the most important skill you need, and the one you need to develop first, is mental toughness.
As we’ve seen in the current crisis, many people have lost their minds. They believe everything they’re told and then rushed out to buy toilet paper. Toilet paper? Exactly how will this help them prepare for this crisis? Coronavirus isn’t a disease of the intestines, stomach, or any other part of that part of the body.
Coronavirus is an upper respiratory infection. To better prepare, these people should have been buying stuff for immune support. Anything that would make them more comfortable if they had the flu or a cold. Cold and flu medicines won’t cure the Coronavirus. They will at least make the person feel a little better while they recover.
Better yet, why not have a healthy immune system from the start so they could fight off the disease?
This is why it’s so important to keep your head. That means figuring out what you can control and what you can’t. The part you can’t control is the part you need to let go of. Otherwise, you’ll stay in chronic stress, and you won’t be able to make good decisions.
Once you understand the part of this situation, or any situation, that you have control of, then that’s the part you need to address. Although I know it’s hard to stay calm in this situation, that’s exactly what you need to do. By staying calm, you can think more clearly, and you won’t make rash decisions.
Save yourself the grief. Stop living in fear. Mindfulness, meditation, and energy medicine are all effective ways to stay calm.
