Maybe you are stressed or frustrated and you dont know why… ‘you just don’t feel yourself,’ you are short with people and easily irritated.
If you can relate then you need to ask yourself this question…
Are your thoughts positive or negative?
If most of your thoughts are negative? Worrying about the virus, about your family, friends work etc. Then the negative thoughts will soon wear away your faith. Soon you will start talking negatively and not have much hope for the future.
Many people look to you for encouragement its important that you stay strong for those people.
So, how can you do this?
Well, a good starting point is, you must purposely do the things each day that gives you the most enjoyment. If you enjoy painting, paint. If you enjoy reading, read. Running, run. Sounds simple but often it’s the simple things that we overlook. Choosing instead to put our attention on the wrong things, and when you’re surrounded by negativity its impossible to be positive.
So instead of looking at the news or going on social media first thing int the morning, wait until lunch. Make sure you go for a walk each day or get some sort of exercise. As exercise has so many benefits:
Improve your memory and brain function (all age groups).
Protect against many chronic diseases.
Aid in weightmanagement.
Lower blood pressure and improve heart health.
Improve your quality of sleep.
Reduce feelings of anxiety and depression.
Combat cancer-related fatigue.
Improve joint pain and stiffness.
With so much fear on media networks and all-over social media, we must also actively feed our minds with faith. We must seek out positive information to lift us up and make us feel better.
When you arise in the morning, I recommend, investing the first hour in yourself, take a walk in nature, spend some time in the garden, start your day with prayer. You will be amazed at the difference in the way you feel and in the results you will get. You will gradually transform your thinking about yourself and what is possible for you. You will become healthier in both mind and body and your faith will grow.

The last 12 months have probably been the hardest of my life. I have heard it said that peoples greatest fear is the fear of the unknown…
Well, the future is unknown.
For most of last year, I found myself looking for answers, looking for information to help me understand what was going on as the whole world shutting down has never happened in history.
What I found was the more I looked, the more fearful and anxious I became as stories varied. As good as the Internet is, it does have a lot of negatives. Stories can be written and shared without any factual evidence to back them up.
Which, in my opinion, is very dangerous.
For me, that’s what has been the hardest part of the last twelve months; there are too many opinions and not enough facts. When we need strong, confident leaders, there doesn’t seem to be any around.
With fear all around me, coming from the news, social media, friends, and family, it sadly got the better of me.
My prayers seem to be going unanswered. Instead of things getting better, when I would turn on the television, I was met with riots on the streets in America and unrest all over the planet.
Then one day, I sat down and took some notes. Asking myself a question;
What was I spending most of my days doing?
Watching the news.
Talking about the pandemic.
Reading stories about the virus and the many conspiracy type stories that came up on social media.
At that moment, I decided to stop the negative sources of information and purposely fill my mind with faith. Almost instantly, I noticed that my anxiety faded, and my sleep and eating improved.
Fear Has A Powerful Effect on Us, But So Too Has Faith— But Faith Must Be Present
With so much fear on media networks at this time and all-over social media, we must actively feed our minds with faith. We must seek out positive information to lift us up and make us feel better.
When in the midst of fear, it can be difficult, but it is necessary.
It can be so tempting to check the news each day in the hope that there has been a sudden change but more often than not, we are met with even more negative news.
Its only when you make God the centre of your day will you see real change, as a light starts to shine into your life. A light of hope, a light of faith, a light of expectancy that all will get better soon.
To share a little bit of my light with you, I have written a book containing the wisdom and knowledge that has given me strength and renewed by faith once again.
