NO TOILET PAPER! HOW TO DEAL WITH THINGS OUT OF YOUR CONTROL AND STAY CONNECTED WHILE IN ISOLATION


hi everyone this is Diana Palm from
www.dianapalm.com and I wanted to talk to you today about how to deal with fear
when there’s a crisis going on even if you are quarantined and feeling isolated
perhaps your job ended or has been put on hold
school has been canceled all kinds of things are shifting and changing in our
very own communities and I want to help you to have some techniques to be able
to still feel your community to be able to connect with others and how to
perhaps use this time to create some new opportunities for yourself and how to
move through the fear of crisis and actually stay in a good centered place
in your homes let’s face it we’re all been affected by
the corona virus I went to the store earlier today no toilet paper the whole
aisle was empty and it’s that case at every store in our area Target Walmart
the grocery store Walgreens is out of toilet paper it’s hitting home when you
can’t get toilet paper what’s next I’d like to help people find resourceful
ways to move through this without the anxiety that it’s invoking nobody likes
to be shoved out of their comfort zone and in the regular daily life in their
patterns the way that their budgets set up all kinds of things are being
affected we can’t control many of these things but there is something we can
control we can control ourselves we can control our own health the way we feel
about things our focus our attitude we can control the environment in our own
homes and we can control the way we look at this we actually have the ability to
control our time some of you have lost your jobs and some of you have been sent
home to work out of home this is causing a lot of financial changes and a lot of
family dynamics are changing or being stretched with the additional stress of
having everyone at home and on top of each other 24/7 so I’d like to give you
some alternative ways to look at this so that you can implement some strategies
in your own home environment to really move through this crisis with a little
bit of ease and the ability to have some skills to work with the timeframe that
we’re all experiencing and all living through right now
many of you are also canceling your vacations your travel plans and stayin
at home and it’s a really good thing to follow the regulations that are being
set forth it’s really good to follow your own guidance on that and only do
what makes you feel comfortable and if you feel confident with going out there
and traveling now I am traveling this week and I have been really impressed by
Delta Airlines who has been keeping me up to the minute on all their additional
sanitization techniques that there cementing on the plane they’re doing
more air filtration they’re spraying everything down the gates are cleaner
the seats are cleaner many of their aircraft are being disinfected by
additional flogging processes and this really assures me that I’m gonna feel
safer also traveling with my iPhone I usually would always put it in the seat
pocket in front of me and now they’re just flat out telling you not to do that
keep your cell phone packed away while you’re on the aircraft we normally don’t
think about these things and it’s time that we do because many of us do travel
and move around a lot for our jobs or our lifestyle and it’s really important
that you just take extra precautions and that you feel comfortable and confident
moving around in the world and keeping a healthy immune system and keeping on
focused with your life the airlines are also making it much easier to do self
check-in at your home computer they’re recommending that you get the app so
that you don’t use the public kiosks at the airport
I always check in from my home computer I can just go straight through security
and onto my plane also as I’m traveling this week I’m only bringing a personal
item which is my backpack I can reduce the things I’m traveling with and roll
them up and pack really tight I don’t want to have what has happened in
Chicago travelers trying to get their bags and there’s huge delays and huge
crowds I will keep that with me and will keep everything in it and it will stay
with me the entire time it won’t be getting transferred or touched by others
I don’t have to worry for it to come out I won’t have any delays this way so if
you are traveling right now I would recommend to pack very light with just a
personal item that you can keep on your body this is also going to make your
travel experience much faster and more enjoyable now for all of you who are not
getting around in traveling maybe you are isolating at home maybe you’ve been
sent home from your work and maybe you’re actually under quarantine it’s
really important right now that you stay cache fluid so you
actually want to have some cash on hand and I’m not talking about actual paper
dollars because what could that if you have to order things online
you want to have access to your money though you don’t want to have it tied up
in properties and stocks where you can’t actually get at it so if you have some
choices to make financially make sure that you have resources in your banking
accounts where you can actually order things that you need and have them
delivered so do make sure that if you have too much cash or if you have
everything tied up that you are making some of that assessable to help you get
through this time ahead this is also an opportunity to look at how you can
diversify your business or the way that you’ve been operating in your business
if you can shift the way that you’ve been serving your clients and offer them
the same services online your business will be able to continue without any
hiccups so look at anything that you currently offer your clients and look at
what their needs are and see if you can figure out a way to offer them the same
service right online most people are going to be spending a lot of time at
home and that means online so if you can reach them and serve them this will be
really good for your business for your financial stability but also knowing
that you’re still being able to serve your clientele and help them with
whatever needs they have this is also a fantastic time to invest in further
training if there’s a skill set that would help you to move your business
online or if there’s something else that you wanted to learn that you haven’t
been able to check out all the online courses there is so much training
available now online where you can actually take advantage of this time at
home to re-educate yourself or enhance the education that you currently have
statistically they’re saying that the online course business is going to be a
billion dollar a day industry by the year 2025 so if you have not already
made your services available online or figured out a program that you could
offer online this might be a really opportune time for you to do that and
start building an empire for yourself through your online offerings while you
cannot control the emotions of friends or family you can control your
own and it’s really important that you’re not living every single day in
fear lack worry anxiety you have control over this you can shift this by either
being proactive or just being peaceful so watch funny movies watch comedies
read books that enrich your soul do something that’s positive keep an
environment in your home that’s light and happy because there’s enough worry
and concern going on in the world right now but you can control your own home
environment so stay up to date but don’t get too saturated in what’s going on
with the media know what you need to know and then turn the news off and
listen to music or cook a great meal do something that actually enriches the
time you have while you have some time off it’s also a great time to do some
spring cleaning spring is just right around the corner here and so right now
it’s a great time to make that shift bring your winter clothes out to the
closet wash up your spring and summer clothes to move the furniture around of
course everyone’s probably already disinfecting and cleaning with Lysol and
when you do that and you do really thorough housecleaning
you find a lot of junk that you’re not even using so go ahead and make your
piles for the goodwill for the trash for someone you want to give it to reduce
the stuff in your house while you’re going through this when people start
moving around again and you start to become active and a regular pattern life
again you’ll be really happy that you’ve already done this reset and that you use
this time wisely for yourself you may find that you have some projects that
have been lingering around unfinished because you haven’t had the time well
this would be the opportune time to get after those stayin purposeful and
completing tasks is a great way to keep your mind moving forward rather than
getting stuck in negative thought forms so think about it for a minute and
figure out what kind of project you may have unfinished around your house that
you want to get after but I haven’t had the time and then decide that you’re
gonna go do it finish the project this will be very
good for your emotional and mental well-being also a wonderful opportunity
to spend time with family so while you may be isolating from the
workplace or from going out to restaurants and doing different things
you can certainly have your family come over and spend time with you and if
they’re living with you in your own house you can keep the environment
lively by cooking dinner together watching movies together playing card
games or board games and keeping it a fun experience for your family now I’m
not saying it’s fun to be isolated it can actually be quite stressful but you
know I live in the Midwest and there’s many times we have storms and bad
weather where we kind of get used to hibernating so I think people in the
Midwest are pretty good if I named very creative ways to keep themselves happy
and entertained I’ll consider maybe getting involved with some crafts or
maybe this is the time to start writing that book that you’ve been wanting to
write it’s another wonderful opportunity to get in shape seriously not as many
people are going to the gyms right now and I love seeing all the videos and
commentary from a lot of my friends and family right now they’re working out in
their living room just like Jack LaLanne remember simple exercises jumping jacks
push-ups you know little hand weights and really you don’t need big expensive
equipment to stay in shape or to workout so many people are actually using this
time to get back in shape and what perfect timing because again by the time
all of this lifts you’ll be ready with your bikini body and ready for
summertime when you’re feeling isolated it’s really important that you actually
reach out and connect with people you can do this from the comfort of your own
home by using Skype to connect with people Facebook has a live video feed
where you can communicate in real time with people in different countries I
often use that when I’m working with clients that live in different countries
and I just love the new Zoom rooms because people are filling them up and
creating communities online with their friends and family and they’re keeping
these active rooms available so people can pop in and stay connected and share
where they’re getting their resources or share what they’re doing and it’s a
wonderful way to stay in the flow with people so that you’re not feeling so
isolated so really take advantage of the times we’re living in with our
technology and the to stay connected with people so easily
right from your smartphone or computer it’s really important that you’re
focusing on your own well-being so take those sea salt baths do the face mask at
night make sure that you’re enriching your soul by doing what makes you happy
you are the one that’s in charge of this nobody can make you decide what to think
or feel so no matter what is going on you own your thoughts and you own your
feelings so why not focus them on something that brings you joy it’s
possible for you to actually move through this time and through this whole
experience without any trauma of course it’s inconvenient but it’s only as
inconvenient as we make it we can actually make this an enjoyable time and
enriching time to reconnect with our family and loved ones reconnect with
ourselves get our finances in order get our new business in order get some more
training get our business online so look for the opportunities in this downtime
and in this isolation and find out how it can benefit you and I did a video
last week on some things that you can do to help beef up your immune system and
help you be virus resilient so make sure you watch that video here of course I am
a medium so I understand the importance of connecting with loved ones it doesn’t
matter if I loved ones have passed our loved ones are here and we can’t get to
them the human need to connect is a vital and important part of who we are
so remember that as you’re sitting in your home and your life is changing day
by day you’re not out circulating as much you’re not going out or perhaps not
even going to work or school but do remember to reach out and make those
human connections reach out in whatever ways you can to create your community
and maintain your well-being by staying connected if you’re medium or want to
take that next step with your mediumship I do have an online course for mediums
