Zoom Fatigue is real, and it’s not just Zoom, it’s all the virtual platforms including FaceTime, Skype, Google Hangouts, etc.
Since the beginning of COVID-19 we’ve been coming up with creative ways to stay in touch, conduct meetings, even stream events live in unprecedented numbers. At first, it seemed like fun, but that changed pretty quickly. You may have realized pretty quickly that the online group meetings with friends and networking groups left you not uplifted, comforted, or fulfilled, but tired, grouchy, and depressed. I began to wonder why Zoom Fatigue was happening and did some research. Continue reading →
Does this sound like you? You’re doing all the right things…eating well (fresh, non-GMO, etc), exercising, meditating, following doctor’s advice, etc and yet you feel strangely off-balance and unsettled, easily irritated, exhausted, at times even feeling like it’s all too much to handle.
Does it seem like you are inundated by too much noise, too much input, too much emotion, too much energy, too many moving parts (things to keep track of), too much talking, too much overthinking, too much fear and hype? If so, you may be a highly sensitive person.
Not all Highly Sensitive Persons are affected by the same things
Social Distancing Means We Get to Go Outside to Socialize!
Summer at Home
Most of us thrive on predictability. We have our jobs which used to include showing up at work, usually outside our home. But now, many of us are working from home. And guess what, many of us have children who are NOT going to the summer camp we planned for them. Instead, they are home.
What can we do to make the most of this situation?
We can take them OUTSIDE! Even if you have a day job, is there a way you can schedule being outside with your kids?
Being outside allows you to expand your energy field. When you’re indoors, your energy field shrinks to fit the size of the room, leaving you feeling constricted and contained. Children may feel this even more than adults, and they may act out or become frustrated.
Are you feeling off, just not quite your normal focused self? You may be suffering from a new term we just came up with – Pandemic EMFing Syndrome. Let me explain
We’ve received a number of calls from Shield customers who are experiencing a return of EMF symptoms – headaches, sleep issues, fatigue, anxiety, poor concentration, general malaise (not feeling quite well, but not sick either) and a list of complaints that had resolved when they started wearing their Shields.
Last week we asked if you were EMFing or Just Ungrounded. Being ungrounded can be the same feeling as reacting to EMF for some; it’s not the explanation for everyone. We put our thinking caps on and talked to a few more people and this is what we believe is happening.
Does your world feel a bit crazy, out of control, even chaotic?
You’re not alone, this seems to be a common state of being these days. Sadly, being spaced-out (ungrounded) makes dealing with the current situation even more difficult, leaving you sad, stressed, depressed, hopeless, unsure what to do next.
Grounding can make a huge difference
Psychology today reports that being grounded brings “… a deeper connection to the authentic self. Groundedness is associated “with an experience of clarity, wholeness, ‘rightness’ and harmony.” Continue reading →
We are experiencing an extremely challenging time right now. Many of us are overwhelmed and feeling like a victim. Even if you’re not normally highly sensitive, things are so intense you may be feeling the stress. This post is for you if you’re feeling stressed and stretched to your limit. Here are some tips to help you become your own hero and be a warrior – the World needs your Love, Strength and Compassion.
How are you dealing with our current situation? Are you responding to the world around you with fear or love? You can stay safe and keep your distance, and still connect in meaningful ways.
WE SEE WHAT WE EXPECT TO SEE
I got a call recently from a dear friend, “Bonnie” who was upset after a phone call with a woman who said that everywhere she looked people were mean and closed off. Bonnie said she felt she was in need of a reality check. Continue reading →
Do you feel all the fear, every time you turn on the TV, pick up a newspaper or read all the posts on Facebook? Did you know that fear can actually weaken your immune system making you more susceptible to viral flu and other illnesses?
