I’ve cried over the thought of losing my business.
I’ve lost sleep over the fear and creeping panic
My heart has raced over thoughts of what ifs and why is this happening and what’s next.
My hands have shaken from being overwhelmed with the news cycle and endless information overload
My muscles have been so tense from trying to keep up with the updates and emails
My stomach is tight and aching
I’m sad and scared for people and what might happen to their overall health, homes and businesses
I’m dizzy with the levels of stress I am experiencing
I'm out of my comfort zone with the next steps for my business and it’s scary
My heart flutters every time I hear the new number of those infected in Canada
I really miss seeing my clients and class participants and being able to “go” to work
Through all of this, we are not alone. We can recognize our emotions, body sensations and thoughts then put to work what we know is best for us or reach out for help. In such a unique time in history, there are no right or wrong ways to react or adapt to our new “normal”. Let’s do our best, help others do the same and give ourselves some grace while we cope. In time, we will look back and be proud of how we came together, held on and we will be stronger in the end.
