Retreat instead of Lockdown.
Our choice of words in communication, inner thoughts, and actions can profoundly affect how we feel and understand our existence.
The word Lockdown invokes the images of being imprisoned, trapped, caged. These images bring out energies of fears, anxiety, anger, hatred and even injustice.
Our brain/mind reacts and only does what we tell it, which sends all the appropriate signals to the rest of the body. Retreat invokes rest, play, harmony, rejuvenation, peace, tranquillity, and happiness.
Many challenges in life are out of our control; however, what we think, how we feel, and our actions are fundamental for our well-being.
In ensuring our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being is balanced, shifting our perspectives will be invaluable.
So many positives have been presented for us all in retreating —quality times with family, children and loved ones.
Time spent tending to the garden, vegetable patches, home renovations. New health regime began for many, couples reconnecting on the home front, creative endeavours started up.
So let's together shift our perspectives and choice of words in our current collective health challenges.
