Dear Excel community,
It’s a challenging time as we hear that many of you have been stood down or lost your jobs, for others working from home is now the new norm. We are being asked to adapt, be flexible and to embrace uncertainty like never before. As human beings, we are constantly searching for ground, a sense of stability and certainty. Without our routines, we can easily slip into un-resourceful patterns of overthinking which create fear and anxiety, reducing our immune function.
COVID-19 looks to change the way we operate for some time to come. It is important to except the things we cannot control and work within our new circumstances. We’ve put together some ideas below around the things that we can control that will enhance our emotional, mental and physical wellbeing at this challenging time.
What we put in our bodies – lemons, blueberries, pineapple, garlic, onion, ginger and turmeric all have antiviral and antibacterial properties. Warm herbal teas and warm, cooked, easily digested food has a effect on our nervous systems.
