Finding Peace In A Time Of Turmoil.

Make A Choice To Turn Off The Panic

I felt like my peace was being taken from me, that each day I felt more anxious and worried about my family and myself. I would look outside and wonder if it was the beginning of the end. I realized that fear not faith was entering my life.
I found myself falling back into old habits that gave me false comfort. I had worked hard to get past these and improve my health and wellness for a while, so it made me sad to see myself using them as a crutch again. (Nothing more sinister than too much chocolate and chips) But I knew it was for the wrong reasons.

I woke up this morning and the sun is still in the sky, the birds are chirping and its a new day. Just because we are staying home more doesn’t mean we can’t find the good in each day. What will bring you more joy and happiness in your day? Creativity!

Find Your Creative Inner Child

Remember when you were little and you sat in the grass making a daisy chain, creativity in your life brings joy and hope. Creativity can come in many forms. It can be listening to music that you like, going for a walk and really noticing nature around you. It might mean cleaning out those closets that you have been meaning to for so long and getting rid of old clothes, making room for the fresh and new. For a long time I thought I wasn’t creative, because I came from a family that has artistic ability, such as drawing and painting. I can’t do either very well, but I am a part of creation, therefore I am creative. So now I am walking each day listening to podcasts or youtube videos that inspire me. I have jumped on the old treadmill in the basement that used to be a clothes hanger, and listen to my favourite music. I may even try some yoga at home later today. There are a lot of videos online that you can use! What about that hobby that you keep looking at in the basement but don’t do anything about? I have a sewing machine and fabric downstairs that has been there for 10 years. Maybe since I have the time, I should actually try and sew something. I also like to create inspirational posts for my pinterest board. These things lift me out of any kind of low mood, and make me think upward. This is not a time for panic, but to have faith in something bigger than yourself.

Stay Connected With Others

The 2 meter rule feels so odd at times. People you would normally walk up to and have a conversation with, you are simply waving from a distance and walking the other way. It can feel very lonely. Make sure you call your friends, facetime, talk to your neighbour even if its over the fence. In times like these human caring and friendship is needed the most. There is always man’s best friend!  Thankfully dogs can’t get sick with this, so feel free to hug them many times a day!

Choosing Faith over Fear

I feel like I have flowed in and out of faith my whole life.  Sometimes going to church, sometimes feeling like I have fallen away.  Ultimately there is a river that flows deep within me that is the truth of what I believe.  I need faith and God in my life to bring peace and especially in times of fear and panic.  I haven’t gone to a church building in quite a long time, so watching videos of services or listening to podcasts is not new to me.   I really enjoy listening to
