HSP BlogMy blog will touch upon many topics for treating body/mind/spirit, from diet and exercise to coping, discovering, appreciating, accepting and healing.

STOP and think before you react to a new thought. One of the most important tasks is to convince the body that it is still SAFE.
If you know your own limits and cannot directly contribute to this COVID crisis, then I invite you to do what I refer to as Compassionate Detachment.
The external world does not need to be reflected in your internal world. We must create and maintain our own internal story and try our best to live in it.
With each new thought, see if your breath is shallow, regular, or deep. You may be surprised how often you return to shallow breathing.

It’s okay to read the statistics if you feel the need, but do not be drawn into the sensationalizing of COVID-19 by some news casts. Avoid the madness.
