How to feel more empowered and less victimized by COVID19
Regardless of your current struggles over the COVID virus, periodically during the day practice allowing yourself to believe that everything is going to be okay. This may feel somewhat artificial at first, but just permit yourself to relax and accept this, “as-if” it’s going to happen—even if it’s only for a few seconds at ﬁrst.
Don’t allow yourself to ﬁght it. You can expect a struggle from your traditional doubts, fears, and hesitations, but for now, remember to accept this notion “as-if” it’s true. The important thing in this drill is to begin feeling what it’s like not to be victimized by life. As you progress with this exercise (it will take practice), you might be surprised at the lasting changes in your mood as well as your “sheltering-in-place” ability to cope.
