We are just three months into this new decade and well, shit hit the fan quite quickly! I have been listening and learning continuously about the Coronavirus since January, and we have all been glued to our screens, witnessing and tracking its spread to Europe.
The corona disease (Covid-19) is here, in Germany, and has started to hit Berlin. Some of us are more worried than others, some are also more affected than others, some don’t give a shit…. but ultimately, we are ALL thinking: what the F**K is happening?!
As you know by now, Tom Hemp’s founder is from Italy and the situation there is critical, so I wanted to share some lessons our brave Italian friends are showing the world during their lockdown.
We need to be strong, to be connected, to take care of and support each other. Immune systems are weakened by anxiety and isolation, but are strengthened by calm and connected feelings. Check out the incredible Neapolitans singing together from their balconies:
Let’s try to keep that wonderful spirit alive and let’s stay calm! … Yes, this is a peculiar and unusual situation, so it’s stressful, but as mentioned above, and as stated here by healthline.com:
“(..)stress hormones will weaken your immune system and reduce your body’s response to foreign invaders. People under chronic stress are more susceptible to viral illnesses like the flu and the common cold, as well as other infections. Stress can also increase the time it takes you to recover from an illness or injury.”
During these times full of uncertainty and stress, it is important to take care of our mental and physical health, practice some breathing and relaxing exercises, check the news once a day, talk to your friends and family, watch funny shows, be creative and take your vitamins!
If you are like me and have a hard time unwinding or are a rather anxious person in general, I truly recommend the CBD oil 7% full spectrum. I have been using it for months now, and it works wonders. My sleep and my health have improved tremendously! And also, lucky us, Tom Hemp’s delivers, which is freaking awesome especially now! By the way, the CBD oil is also excellent for people who have an autoimmune disease as it is an immunosuppressant and immunomodulator.
To conclude, my friends, we are all in this together so let’s truly foster our sense of community and let’s not forget: this too shall pass.
Stay safe, and be mindful
