You Have a Choice on How to Live

You have a choice on how to live.

We’ve all experienced the shift in the last few days in North America {and the world}. The shift towards the fear of the unknown. We look to China and Italy and consume ourselves with worry.

There is no doubt that there’s a highly communicable disease spreading. My heart goes out to all affected and especially to those for whom it was too much. It came on quickly and we still know very little about it. I still feel like in general, society is playing defence.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The disease itself we can prepare for. We can heighten our protection.  Surely, by now, you’ve read at least one post on how to support your immune system. We know to drink water, reduce sugar intake, eat healthy foods, wash our hands regularly, get adjusted by a chiropractor for optimal nervous and immune system function, avoid highly populated areas and use natural supports like essential oils and vitamins {amongst others} to support our immunity.

 

If your immune system is compromised, make prudent choices that have your best interests at heart.

Truth be told, my friends, I am not concerned about the disease. I’m concerned about how society is choosing to behave in light of the disease. Fear spreads faster AND weakens is as a whole.

We have two choices here: react or respond.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
React is to bulk buy toilet paper, panic grocery shop {the majority of which is processed foods instead of whole foods which is an entirely other issue and SERIOUS mismanagement of your health}, assume the worst if you get the sniffles, consume mass media, spread rumours, and LIVE AS IF YOU ARE NOT IN CONTROL.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To respond is to take a deep breath, take measures as they come, prepare for potential outcomes with intentional thought, and CHOOSE TO LIVE YOUR LIFE KNOWING YOU HAVE CONTROL.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One is fear based. The other is love based. Love for yourself, your family, your community, and the world.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Choose to be a voice of reason amongst the chaos.
