How to stay positive when the world as we know it is changing

My best advice is to live life as normally as you can. Here are some things I do to make me stay sane, which in turn helps me feel calm and keep a positive outlook.


* Make sure to get some sunlight on your skin and go for a walk around the block (or as far as you can). Vitamin D (which you can get as a supplement from the supermarket or pharmacy) is very important for us, as well as moving our bodies



* Work out at home. I love the LesMillsOnDemand streaming program which I can do whenever I want from the comfort of my own home. I love the sh´bam and body combat classes! (No equipment needed.) There are many pros with working out, such as releasing endorphins which makes you feel happy. Exercising make your brain younger and happier, as well as your body.

* Sage your home and/or light incense or candles. Sage can clean your home from negative energies

* Take a warm bath if you have a bathtub or a nice shower. Feel free to combine this with a home spa ritual. I use a hair mask, body scrub, and a face mask once a week to pamper myself

* Tap! Look at EFT videos on Youtube, especially on how to deal with anxiety (or whatever feeling might be bringing you down at the moment). There are even videos on how to boost the immune system and it doesn´t take many minutes to do, and you´ll feel better after (even though it might feel strange the first few times you do it if you are not used to it)

* Watch funny videos, movies, and documentaries! This is the time for Netflix and chill! (Or why not dive into Gaia, HBO or Amazon Prime)

* Get inspired by online learning. I love online courses and have more than 30 (!) courses waiting for me at Udemy. They often have cheap offers and I love the personal development ones. Skillshare offers the 2 first months for free and there are lots of other online learning platforms available for cheap learning from home, so dive into some new things you always wanted to learn but did not have time for before

* Learn a new language

* Or, why not share your knowledge with the world and create an online course? This might also give you a good passive income once you have finished it

* Make a vision board filled with all the dreams you would like to achieve



* Make a scrapbook with ”real” photos in a physical album/notebook or on your computer

* Clean and declutter your apartment and wardrobe (as a bonus this might open up for more abundance flowing into your life!)

* Declutter your desktop and go through old photos, documents, etc on your computer – is there anything unnecessary you can delete?

* If you miss traveling, watch travel movies and documentaries, and plan where you´d love to go and what to do when you can travel again

* Write letters to your friends and family and share some extra love

* Start a blog or write your thoughts and dreams in a diary

* Call someone you haven´t talked to in a while

* Write a book (that´s what I am doing and it is so much fun!)

* Start to paint or use an adult coloring book

* Fix the things at home that always makes you annoyed about not having fixed yet

* Start writing in a gratitude journal, where you write down everything you are grateful for

* Think of new jobs you can do from home and apply for them

* Listen to inspiring podcasts

* Write a song

* Actively look for positive news and share them on social media. There are lots of people who need more positivity in their lives now and who needs to hear YOUR words to feel better

* Also, distance yourself from negative news, media and negative friends at the moment. Also, start the day with meditation rather than browsing the latest Facebook feed

* Learn how to meditate, or listen to a guided meditation (there are heaps of free ones online)

* Practice mindfulness and observe everything around you, without any judgment

* Brainstorm ideas for starting (or expanding) your own business

* Connect with your closest family, talk about your day, your dreams and vision, play board games or video games (I love Mario Cart!), etc.


* Research Law of attraction and Law of vibration, and learn how to make your dreams come true and vibrate on a higher frequency

* Help someone somehow – maybe offer a free coaching session, help an older neighbor buying food or support the local business with getting take away/home delivery for dinner

* If you feel worried, imagine a white healing light or bubble surrounding you and your loved ones wherever you are, which makes you safe

* Just breathe. Count to five when you breathe in, hold your breath for 2 seconds and count to another five when you breathe out This too will pass soon enough. Lots of love
