Social Connection Physical Distancing | Notes From 4/22/2020 Free Chat with CCM

Going through struggles with people you are living with is very, very common

Remember that people who are in your environment who may be trying to control everything are doing so to soothe their own anxiety, try to shift to a feeling compassion towards them

When we let go of trying to control of things, we come back to the present moment

It is so illusory to think we are in control of things, we can take actions to minimize risk, but control is basically not within the realm of possibilities

Being in the moment also includes planning, what we do want to avoid is the future oriented fear about things that my or may not happen

ASk yourself, Is the thing I'm about to do a response to an emotion or Is it something that is aligned with my ultimate goal? Ask yourself when you are unsure of what action to take

Self care is also choosing who you are going to interact with

Self care is not just about relaxing or escapes, it's about building a life you don’t want to escape from, its doing the daily things we have to do and taking care of first things first

Refuse to judge yourself

Focus on the things you can control and the things you have to be grateful for
