I can’t count the number of times someone told me to “Stay Safe” as we were finishing our interaction at the register or somewhere else in the store. They struck me funny, as they were usually preceded with episodes of forgotten phones and wallets, dropping items on the floor, etc.
It’s interesting — that language — isn’t it?
It makes sense — we all are trying to figure out where our power begins and ends in regards to this situation.
⁉️ Where do we actually have a measure of control?
⁉️ Does it matter if we do all these things they’re telling us to do?
⁉️ Can we keep actually ourselves and our loved ones safe from the situation that’s going on around us?
Well, sure… we can practice good hygiene, double-down on our self-care and supplements, and practice self-distancing.
And all of those actions/habits will increase our immunity and chances of staying healthy.
And that’s all good…
After an hour of watching people behave the way we all do when we feel unsafe (scattered, dropping things, losing important items, making demands on their family members), I decided to shift the conversation to “STAY WELL.”
This morning, I thought…
that WE HAVE SOME POWER over our SENSE OF SAFETY?
And that we CAN increase that sense of safety by STAYING GROUNDED…

❤️ in our bodies (how many of you regularly check out of your body during stress? that’s definitely me!)
❤️ in the facts that our minds and bodies are powerful self-healing agents when given the proper nutrients and attention
❤️ in our relationships with loved ones and the people we pass at a safe distance in stores and on the street
❤️ in nature
