It’s an understatement to say that the world is facing a lot of anxiety right now.
The coronavirus has changed our day-to-day lives. Maybe you find yourself at home with your kids, who can’t go to school, but you’re also trying to work from home. Maybe, you’ve been watching too much negative media, and all you can think about is how the world looks like it’s ending (I promise, it’s not). Or maybe, you got laid off from your job, and you’re struggling to pay the bills.
We’re going through some really hard times, and it’s completely normal to feel high levels of anxiety right. But there is a danger in obsessing over the details. Continued anxiety can have chemical effects on our body as well as our immune system.
It’s really incredible how what we’re thinking of affects our physical health. If we’re constantly thinking negatively, our bodies are going to suffer as a result. On the other hand, if we focus on thinking about the positive things in our life, we can literally make our bodies (and our minds!) healthier.
I’ve got an expert and a favorite guest on the The School of Greatness today to help calm some of our fears and teach us how to positively rewire our minds in order to heal and stay healthy.
Dr. Joe Dispenza is an international lecturer, researcher, corporate consultant, New York Times bestselling author, and educator who has been invited to speak in more than 33 countries on 6 continents. As a lecturer and educator, he is driven by the conviction that each of us has the potential for greatness and unlimited abilities.
In his easy-to-understand, compassionate style, he has educated thousands of people, detailing how they can rewire their brains and recondition their bodies to make lasting changes. His most recent book, Becoming Supernatural, talks about how we can intentionally change our brain chemistry to initiate profoundly mystical, transcendental experiences and develop a more healthy body, mind, and spiritual life.
I’ve had Dr. Joe on The School of Greatness a couple times now, and I was so excited to have him back on today. We couldn’t meet in person due to the coronavirus, but we conducted a video interview together that I think you’re really going to enjoy. If you haven’t already, check out our past interviews (Episode 826 and Episode 679) — they are all really applicable to what we are going through right now.
In the hard times we are currently facing, it is so important to take a moment to refocus our minds to prevent ourselves from spiraling into anxiety. Anxiety and depression can chemically change our bodies and even suppress our immune system, and now more than ever, it’s important for us to keep that from happening.
Attitude is everything. When we do feel anxious, there are things we can do to recenter ourselves and raise our consciousness to a higher level. To learn how, join me on Episode 933 with the incredible Dr. Joe Dispenza. And if you want to take things to the next level, check out his guided meditation CDs and audio downloads.
