According to CDC, Covid 2019 is “a new strain discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans.” Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they can be transmitted between animals and people. Common signs of infection include but are not limited to :

  • respiratory symptoms
  • fever
  • cough
  • shortness of breath
  • breathing difficulties
  • pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death (mainly occurring in elderly infected persons)

Coronavirus has become officially a pandemic which the World Health Organization (WHO) defines as “the worldwide spread of new disease.”

How to prevent Coronavirus: guidelines for dealing with COVID-19

  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Keep your distance when you are in the public

A mindfulness approach to stop the crisis: COVID 19 Meditation to release fear & anxiety of this

Our team has compiled a list of relevant guided meditations to help you with healing from fear during this global crisis. All these meditations are available for free in our app; however, the most relevant are embedded in this article.

Meditation can help relieve anxiety.

Mindfulness meditation can help you relieve anxiety and fears. Use one of our meditation sessions to find peace amidst Coronavirus 2019. Learn how to cultivate calm during this situation. A great example is that we are told not to touch our nose and face to avoid contamination; however, it is easier said than done. This is a great reason to start your meditation practice and form new habits.

Instead of shaking each other’s hands, we can look each other in the eye and send loving-kindness—wishing each other health, safety and peace. In fact, in stressful times it’s worth leaning into the compassionate side of mindfulness. It’s worth remembering our shared humanity. And it’s particularly worth paying attention to the biases, judgments, and condemnations that arise from fear and separate us from each other. In many ways, COVID-19 has shown us just how connected and how much the same we really are. All of us—and some of us more than others—are vulnerable to getting sick and none of us wants to become ill. Viewed through the lens of interconnectedness, practicing mindfulness as the coronavirus spreads is not only a way to care for ourselves but a way to care for everyone around us.
