I've been through several loved ones passing on, and dealing with health issues caused by medication that cured one health problem. In short, definitely among the most challenging years of my life. How do i cope?
1 Take walks whenever i can - only exception is when it is raining. Am lucky to live in a state with lots of sun even in winter (NC) so that makes it easier. Walking helps me focus on things outside my body and mind. Watching nature - dried trees, odd bird or two that is still around, weird vegetation that braves the cold to stay..all of these keep my soul nourished.
2 Watch funny movies...laughter helps the soul and mind. Watched 'Junior', then 'Coming to America'..onwards now to several others. I typically do this while eating my lunch or dinner.
3 Do tapping meditation, several times daily - https://www.thetappingsolution.com/blog/stress-anxiety-tap-along/ - I highly recommend this even for those who are not into meditation..It is non religious, easy, pragmatic way to release stress.
4 Listen to podcasts that offer a down to earth, pragmatic and science based view of what future holds - my favorite is 'In the Bubble' with Andy Slavitt.
5 Talk to friends and family - mostly via chat as i do better with that compared to phone conversation. I am grateful to many friends in #sqlfamily who have offered some incredible tips during this difficult time.
Hugs and best wishes to all, we will get through this.
