This morning is a great start to the five-day workweek. I have been indulging myself in activities that had no time to regularly do. Like this morning. I was able to exercise for fifteen minutes in nature without the hassle of stressing if I would be too late for work. Or without the hassle of stressing over what I had on my plate to do today at work. During this time of lockdown and quarantine, there are many things to consider such as immune health. How are you staying healthy? Well, I personally took a carrot, orange, ginger and mint shot after my exercise. I broke out the juicer and made good clean green juice perfect for immune stability and health. On any regular occasion, I would have been so stressed out and tired from working that I would not have time to take care of my body.
I call shame on myself. I am a podcaster and content creator promoting self-love and self-care, yet some times I let the pressures of my day-to-day compound me so much, that I do not and can not focus on my internal health. It takes me a few days to sit back and realize that I am slipping. It happens to the best of us. We all need focus and discipline. And this time is perfect for me to center around that discipline by focusing on my future goal. As this virus will pass. I know it will. We still have to keep our mind, body, and spirit healthy. Exercise is key.
Yes! I know we will all be at home. But we do not all have to be eating poorly while at home. This period should not be an excuse for our health to diminish if we can prevent it. Eat food that will strengthen your immune health. Exercise around the house. Clean up your home. This virus is opening up our eyes to how hygiene is very important. We must clean around us. We must clean inside and outside our bodies as well. Wash your hands. Clean your bladder. Clean your colon. The fruits and vegetable aisles are still going untouched. Now is the time to touch some lettuce, kale, and spinach and break out the old juicer.
Quarantine is rough for most people, but understand that life is more than social gatherings. This time of isolation is ideal to get centered. Start affirming your faith in a higher power. Start to build up your hope. Start setting daily affirmations for your life. Start or complete projects you had no time for before. Pick up a few skills or perfect the skills you have now.
If you are like me and are preparing to take a new journey in your life. Continue to prepare. Do not let this little delay stop you. When God makes you wait it is for a reason. We are all in the waiting room. There is no shame in waiting. However, like the story in the bible with the five (5) virgins, let us keep our lamps trimmed and burning. When the Lord calls us. Then we must stay ready so we won’t have to get ready.
