How are you doing?
It’s a simple question asked everyday in my practice.
No, really…how are you truly doing?
It’s a question that goes beyond common pleasantries and deep into the heart of everything that matters, at least to a homeopath.
I’ve had the privilege of continuing consultations in my practice nearly 100% remotely. It’s a different dynamic, and something all of us are doing our best to get used to.
Sometimes, the human connection is lost when visiting remotely. But, the meaning of where you are, and how you’re doing is no less important. In fact, amidst a pandemic, it seems especially important.
From the vantage point of a homeopathic practitioner, we’re all dealing with the “shelter in place” reality in our individual ways. All of us have unique dispositions and distinct susceptibilities based on life experiences and circumstances which help us make sense of our world and garner meaning from any perceived stress. Based on how we’re individually perceiving this stress, we are all uniquely responding to it, as well.
I’ve consulted with many people from all walks of life throughout this current pandemic situation. One commonality arising out of this is the feeling of loneliness - in both young and old alike. How we experience loneliness is unique to each individual, but it is a prevailing theme throughout, regardless of age and circumstance.
That has really struck me over the past several weeks. I felt compelled to let you know that you are not alone. It’s easy to go there; to mire in despair. So many others are feeling the same, or in a similar, way. In my opinion, there isn’t one best way to deal with life as result of the coronavirus. Though, based on my consultations and known effective healthy lifestyle strategies, I’ve compiled the following list of ways to manage stress and loneliness during this time. Perhaps you may also find them to be of use right now.
In no specific order of importance:
This list really could go on, but it’s at least a start to helping remedy the natural feelings of stress and loneliness associated to this time.
I remain here for you and available in all the ways I can as a practitioner of the healing art and science of homeopathy. I’m also a fellow human being who is living this out the best way I can with a compassionate heart for all the suffering that is occurring. Hopefully this information was helpful for you in navigating it all, as well.
