    Hi! I am focusing on taking care of my whole self by starting every day with prayer, tea, and gratitude. I’m staying off anything electronic during my first and last 1 1/2 hours of each day.

    I mostly isolate, definitely social distancing, and hand wash. I take walks without other people around and practice QiGong. It is my understanding that QiGong helps strengthen the immune system. That is something I have practice regularly for 15 years. Just clarifying as I don't want this post to sound like I'm suggesting what others can do to be safe and virus free by doing QiGong. Attached is a picture I took on my last walk along Tennessee River in Chattanooga.

    What a lovely idea! That is something I would love to do! In these odd times though, I am one that happens to have more daily responsibilities now. I am solely responsible now for this sweet lady with dementia. We are here now in this house (her house)in quarantine together. But that sounds like something great do do before I pursue a new job when this is all over! Thank you for posting that Gillian!

    Honestly I'm finding so much peace in the stillness in the normally chaotic city I live in. Spending a lot more time sitting in these new quiet moments, reflecting and trying to appreciate the small benefits the earth is getting during this time, vs worrying. Also spending more time connecting with family and friends (by phone and video)

    Day2: 3 Mindful Breaths. Today I appreciate the “prep” work of relaxing into your seat, easing tension, becoming more present BEFORE actually mindfully looking at your breath. I think this is the piece I have been neglecting when trying to meditate on my own. I would sit, close my eyes and immediately take a look at my breath. I quickly became agitated, uncomfortable and impatient then quit, thinking “Phrew! Got that out of the way...what’s next?” Today, my 3 breaths flowed easily and I found it fascinating to really notice what was happening, especially the transitions between inhaling and exhaling. Lovely.

    Slowing myself down to focus on a complete breath is so powerful to me. No matter what the situation or how rattled, stressed or out of control I feel this simple drawing in of my focus to the breath in my body anchors me. It leaves me feeling calm, focused and in control.

    Hey Gillian, I really appreciate what you have shared here. I too am thankful for the opportunity I have now to slow down, and breathe, reflect, and become aware of where I am in this moment. I remember a teacher of mine who was showing walking meditation sharing that the practice of walking meditation reminds us of the miracle of balance. Our bodies know what to do and we just do it. Each step then becomes an appreciation for our bodies and a reminder that our health is something to appreciate and nurture. The absence of close connection with some friends right now is a reminder of how much I value and enjoy their presence (in person.) Today I did my Mindful Movement Class through Zoom and someone showed up who had not been in class for a couple months. She had delivered her third child and was home taking care of her precious newborn. She was able to attend online today only because her husband( a doctor) has a few days off, so he is watching the children and she can attend Mindful Movement. We all were so happy to see her. She would not have been able to attend online if the current situation was not in place. We all were just cheering in happiness to see her again.
