What Do Batman and The Current Crisis Have in Common?
I hope the title of this blog doesn’t shock anyone, given that I happen to be a Batman and Starwars movie lover. However, I don’t cease to compare the last Batman movie that I watched in which Gotham was being attacked by a fear gas, for which an antidote was needed. And I don’t want to sound naive, aloof, or insensitive, but while the current crisis is scary by itself, the fear factor surrounding it is exponentially worse. Yes, it will make people think and act hopefully with prudence, but lack of action also has its consequences. It can push people into depression, which is even worse; or into expressing very right versus wrong remarks. According to Bruce Lipton, psychoneuroimmunology, is a growing field dedicated to studying the scientific fact that positive and negative thinking have a profound effect on the function of the immune system. He goes on to explain how consciousness controls such function. This is the time to rise above the current situation, not the opposite.
As a spiritual person and person with faith, I believe strongly in us as humans, to rise above the circumstances and to come out of this stronger and better than ever. We are already seeing the transformation going on around us in the way many of us interact with each other, in person and in business; and have seen great ideas being executed.
While there’s no real solution, because the crisis IS SCARY, there are a few things we can do:
- meditation (or religion for some), I don’t cease to suggest it. And yes, it is even related to skin, since it can improve your skin. How? Well, stress can have an impact on your skin, and meditation can calm the stress. Through the brain-gut-skin connection that I have mentioned in other posts, we can have some control of our skin.
- There’s also exercise, reading a book, connecting with loved ones, and more.
- Taking supplements, such as magnesium and vitamin D that can help us with our moods.
but my intention is not to be repetitive. I’ll leave the choosing to you.
I just hope that we gather strength through this crisis to push through and bring the best in us. As always, you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 305-356-7402. Please remember that “Our Promise Is More Than Beauty”.
