Life is Like Riding a Bicycle
Updated: Oct 25, 2020
As we are all trying to figure out how to deal with the new normal, it is important for us to keep on looking forward. Einstein's quote resonated with me. There are a lot of things out of our control, however, we still control how we react to our new uncertain environment.
Below is the list of things that I have found to be particularly helpful and useful...
Useful Apps and Links
1) The World Health Organization has recently launched a WhatsApp alert service. Click on the link on how to sign up.
2) Most of us by now are working from home. And I am sure that we do not have the most ergonomically designed chairs and desk to spend long hours of work. So, why not try out some desk yoga!
3) Calm your nerves with meditation. Check out the free The Breathing App. It’s a very simple tool for timing resonant breath - when we breathe at a rate of five to seven breaths per minute (instead of our usual 15-18). Really good for calming the nervous system.
I also have friends who swear by Headspace and Calm. They have a series of meditations on a particular theme, there’s also guided movement videos and sleep stories.
4) Travel the world virtually -- Get your culture fix with virtual tours of museums, street art walking tours, nature trails, and behind the scenes of an aquarium. My favorite picks so far are:
The Louvre - enjoy the art here
Machu Picchu - this is breathtaking and on my bucket list
50 places to visit in Chicago - these bring back memories
Of course, I have to include Austin - here.
5) Last but not least, here is a very timely article on Finding Focus in the Digital Age.
The greatest investment that you can make is on yourself.
