How to feel better in the midst of a pandemic

We are living in uncertain times.

Most people look forward to the holiday season. Parties with friends. Shopping sprees. Family rituals. And now we are told that we cannot do the things we enjoy. In addition, we are worried about our parents, our children, our coworkers, our businesses and more. We don’t feel safe when we go out in public, especially when other people are not doing what they should be doing.

We feel the impact.

Some of us feel worried, angry or exhausted. We may experience physical and mental symptoms. Perhaps we are not really sure what we are feeling.

There is no doubt that this holiday season will be different. I know that there are things that I cannot change. I focus on noticing my reactions and paying attention to what bothers me. Using Logosynthesis, developed by Dr. Willem Lammers, I am able to identify and resolve the frozen perceptions that trigger my patterns of reacting: the distressing thoughts, emotions and body sensations. When the triggers are eliminated, I feel better. I can feel a sense of peace and calm. I am better able to make the most of my current situation. And so I do this not only for my own wellbeing but also so those around me can feel better.

As we enter into the holiday season, our children can also feel the intensity of what is happening. As a parent, how I respond influences how my children respond. When adults feel a sense of peace and calm, children are better able to feel the same. Together we can create a memorable holiday. We can make shared moments feel better.

We can change how we feel.

Logosynthesis offers a structured method to help us feel better. In November 2017, we conducted an international survey of psychologists, psychotherapists and coaches who have trained in Logosynthesis and use it to treat symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, burnout and others. They attribute overall effectiveness, speed of work, ease of use, client comfort and targets presented issue as the key benefits which make this their preferred treatment method.

You can begin to use it to feel better right away. I share the guided method in this YouTube video. Watch it in a quiet, relaxed place. Watch the entire video. It is always the same method and the more you practice, the better you will become at identifying the trigger. For deeper issues, a trained Practitioner in Logosynthesis® is recommended to support the process. 

I also show you why and how to use Logosynthesis in your everyday life in the book: “Thriving In Our Times: From Reactions To Action Using Logosynthesis®’. The book also offers examples to show how an international group of coaches, counsellors and therapist use Logosynthesis to resolve a variety of presenting issues from fear related to coronavirus to helping a student with homework.
