The Positive Habit Weekly Blog – 16th March, 2020 – Smile to Stop COVID-19 Anxiety Spreading
Smile to Stop COVID-19 Anxiety Spreading. I hope you and your family, friends and colleagues are doing well in these turbulent times.
I decided the best way to reach you this morning was through a video I made and which you can see below. Please do watch it and share with family and friends.
Also below, some wise words below from Brother Richard, of the Capuchin Franciscans.
Yes there is fear.
Yes there is isolation.
Yes there is panic buying.
Yes there is sickness.
Yes there is even death.
They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise
You can hear the birds again.
They say that after just a few weeks of quiet
The sky is no longer thick with fumes
But blue and grey and clear.
They say that in the streets of Assisi
People are singing to each other
across the empty squares,
keeping their windows open
so that those who are alone
may hear the sounds of family around them.
They say that a hotel in the West of Ireland
Is offering free meals and delivery to the housebound.
Today a young woman I know
is busy spreading fliers with her number
through the neighbourhood
So that the elders may have someone to call on.
Today Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and Temples
are preparing to welcome
and shelter the homeless, the sick, the weary
All over the world people are slowing down and reflecting
All over the world people are looking at their neighbours in a new way
All over the world people are waking up to a new reality
To how big we really are.
To how little control we really have.
To what really matters.
So we pray and we remember that
Yes there is fear.
But there does not have to be hate.
Yes, there is isolation.
But there does not have to be loneliness.
Yes, there is panic buying.
But there does not have to be meanness.
Yes, there is sickness.
But there does not have to be disease of the soul
Yes, there is even death.
But there can always be a rebirth of love.
Wake to the choices you make as to how to live now.
Listen, behind the factory noises of your panic
The birds are singing again
The sky is clearing,
Spring is coming,
And we are always encompassed by Love.
Open the windows of your soul
And though you may not be able
to touch across the empty square,
How to Stop the Spread of Coranavirus Anxiety!
Positive ways to keep your mind calm and your body healthy during these uncertain times. 🙏

All surfaces are sanitised daily. If you are at risk or prefer for any reason to have your session online via skype or video call, then this can be arranged.

Testimonial from The Positive Habit online programme:
Saturday, February 29, 2020
“This course is very powerful which helped me through a period of anxiety and allowed me gain perspective again. I have since changed jobs and have noticed that I now respond to stressful situations differently, remaining calm. I am much more aware of my stress triggers and have incorporated the positive pause into my daily routine.”
