If ever there was a time when people needed reassurance, there is no better time than right now. These are some scary times. Full of uncertainty, fear, and judgement. It’s easy to say don’t panic, but how to you practice not-panicking? Here is my trick.
I repeat this little prayer/saying/mantra whenever I’m faced with panic or negativity. This refocuses me. This centers me. It’s like putting blinkers on and shutting out the noise to only see what is ahead of you. You can be generally aware of what is happening without taking it ALL in. There is soooooo much out there!
Let’s not get lost in the noise. Let’s focus on the things we can control. Let’s be brave enough to face and change these things we can control. Let’s be strong enough to set the things we can’t control aside and trust that the world won’t fall apart if we don’t give these things our attention.
This is how I don’t panic.
