If you are feeling stressed because you are unable to be present with those you feel need your care; maybe grandparents or children, you can still send them ‘love energy’ from a distance. There is enough evidence showing it really works. So follow these steps:

Find a comfortable place to sit; maybe in front of a window looking out on a pleasant scene, or just observe a picture on the wall, or even focus on your bookshelf with your favourite books. You can even place an item that you love and appreciate in front of you.

Now with a soft gaze let a feeling of deep appreciation and love gradually rise – and then allow your eyelids to close gently.

With each breath you take feel your whole body fill with love. Enjoy the sense of happiness that comes with this loving feeling.

Now with each in-breath begin to think of someone you are missing. See their face, hear the sound of their laughter, and with each out-breath radiate this love toward them. Imagine their joy receiving it.

After you have done this for a short while, in your minds-eye imagine giving them a special hug – knowing that you can send them love in this special way at any time.

You can repeat this for each person you are missing that you want to reach out to.

When complete, still with your eyes closed, keep breathing gently whilst you place your attention on your heart. Now allow yourself to be filled with the abundance of love that ultimately makes life what it is.

It’s been one helluva year, 2020. And so, as it gradually draws to a close, many South Africans will be looking forward to the holiday season. This is typically the time to switch your mind off work, prepare for the festive season, just chill, or hang-out with friends. Typically it is also the time when we spend more money on gifts, parties, spending our bonuses (for those lucky enough to receive such a blessing) on luxury items, or new clothes, or going away on holiday.

Act to seek out such suffering – it may be hiding in that very women or child in front of you. Fear and pain are hidden within victims of violence. They often tend to remain silent about their shame, pain and fear. They are likely to be all around; in a meeting, queueing in the canteen, or rubbing shoulders in a taxi. So reach out with kindness and love – you may prevent a trauma, even save a life, and help restore hope and belief in life.

Feeling worn out with low tolerance?

When it comes to cultivating resilience, the magic is in the very first step.
When cultivating your resilience become aware of your mental and emotional state. Remember that if you get into an anxious, or even angry ‘state’, you can easily go into a downward spiral where the negative feeling gets stronger. That’s called a ‘feedback loop’.

In these challenging times you could be feeling worn-out and experiencing low tolerance. Yes, we have also been warned that we will all be facing unexpected challenges for some time. So how do you navigate these stormy waters?
