As we move through the coronavirus, let's focus on being healthy, happy, and helpful.
I am not interested in spreading fear or panic, and it is important to take into full consideration the conditions we are currently faced with. WHO (World Health Organization) has determined that COVID-19 constitutes a global pandemic. More than 200,000 cases have been reported and more than 8,000 deaths. It's even made its way to my little mountain town.
We need to take this seriously. We need to follow recommended suggestions for hygiene practice—wash hands well, and frequently—as well as for social distancing. We need to say home when we can, keep a distance of 9 feet from people, refrain from eating out, and gathering in groups. The more people who follow these guidelines, the more lives will be saved, and the sooner we put these into practice, the faster we can curb the spread of the virus.
Taking a situation seriously, does not mean that we lose our levity. Quite the opposite, in times of crisis, we want to keep our hearts open, our minds active, yet not overwhelmed. We want to to stay informed, and we want to practice discernment, and not spread panic. We also want to stay connected. To that end, I asked my social community of over 2,500 people to contribute to a list of tips that they employ to boost their immunity. What are some tips you would share?
Thirteen tips to Support your Immune System.
Sex boosts Immunity, so there's That.
"We can explore ways to look after ourselves, and each other. Connect, check in, phone and text people. We can flirt—it’s contagious, in the best way. And we can masturbate, as well as meditate. Both are self-love practices, and relieve stress.
Now is the time to open, be honest, and even play. For some that is acknowledging fear, panic, and uncertainty. I get it. I too have been feeling anxious. Anxiety is a familiar companion to me. I have ways to soothe it. I drink water, eat well, get into nature, rest, and limit my time with overstimulating activities.
Along with anxiety, another energy is rising in me right now. They feel similar, but different, depending on my mental context—feeling crushed? Or having a crush!—this brings us back to sex and immunity.
This is where being honest about what is coming up is a healthy response to any stimuli, and what is coming up for me is arousal. I’m excited. Something sensual bubbles just beneath my skin. Is that weird? Maybe. It’s also part of being human, and I feel so human right now."
