Are you afraid of dying of corona virus?
How fear can lead to power and greatness!
The fear is real. People are scrambling to preserve their health. They are afraid of getting sick, spreading it, and hurting people. Why are you staying at home? Why are you wearing a mask? Why are you afraid for your children’s future?
The mistake we make.
Many people have a hard time with death. I do too. It’s understandable, but it requires reflection. We will all die. It could be in a car accident, a stray bullet or a virus. It could happen tomorrow or 50 years from now, we have no idea when our time will come. Why are we more afraid when death seems more likely? It’s no more likely now than later, it’s just sooner. I understand why that is unsettling, anxiety-producing, even immobilizing. Our real fear is loss of health, pain, loss of life, loss of loved ones.
A recent scare.
I recently had a health scare that I have made public. I am ok, but I truly believed, as rational or irrational as it may have been, that I was going to die. The only thing that mattered was my health, the health of my wife and daughter, and my future with both of them. This experience, just before the corona virus pandemic, really brought things into perspective.
The fears you have today, should not go away.
(It’s not a bad thing.)
You should not live in fear, but you should live in a state of gratitude and action. Act like healthy people act, do what they do. Appreciate your health when it’s not threatened by COVID-19, remember the fear you feel now, apply it to your health later. Do you wish you could go to the gym now? They are closed. I want to go, but I can’t. Will you go when the pandemic calms down and the gym opens? Will you join a new gym? Will you eat better? Will you stretch more? Get a massage regularly? See a chiropractor? Go to therapy? How are you going to use the corona virus pandemic to make changes in your life that mean something to your most valuable asset, your health?
We help people create better health and confidence.
Chiropractors don’t diagnose and treat disease, we identify and promote the creation of better health. As weird as this may sound given that we are so good at, and known for, helping people with back pain, you may want to learn more. For nearly 125 years, chiropractors have been holistic prevention specialists who optimize body function through improved brain and nerve control. We do this by reducing stress on nerves with chiropractic adjustments. Even simple computer programs most of us do not understand, but we use them. Sometimes the more we use them, the more we understand how they work. For many, chiropractic is no different. They get help and all the while, learn more as they go. Enlightenment takes time, but it’s worth the effort.
“Remember, fear and stress, if not overwhelming, can be channeled for good. You should write down your health-related fears today, what they mean to you and your life, and save them for sunnier days when you need motivation for doing what is right for your health.” ~Dr. Lou
