Viral Content & Panic Writing
HI 2 you all at this apprehensive time during the global news of the COVID-19 worldwide spread. For a moment let's pay a thought for all the unlucky individuals that have lost their lives through this viral outbreak, the impact on families and friends and the dedicated medical staff at hospitals, local GP's and in social care - This is SERIOUS, this is HAPPENING and this is REAL.
This would be the first time my generation has gone through a crisis like this and when roads are quiet, shops and shelves empty, news bulletins and media spreading and drowning us on a daily basis it's enough to put us all in a mild panic during the pandemic. The fear, unknown facts and factors and eeriness of it all will have all of our thoughts racing.
The global branded company I work for on a daily basis has finally pulled the plug through these challenging times and an announcement went out yesterday to stop all work while they re-plan and create a new strategy. This in turn has given me time off until 30 March 2020 and has benefited me greatly when it comes to self isolating myself and getting stuck into some serious Wealthy Affiliate content and writing. I have plenty of time on my hands and I intend on making full use of it to create, move through the training and bring my website up to speed.
Our worse enemy at the moment are our infectious thoughts on what is currently happening over the world, it's fear of the unknown and is bound to sweep most of us up into the frenzy of it all and become very anxious day by day. Our thoughts are linked with our feelings and emotions and in turn, whatever they are telling us and making us feel, we will act on them as feelings are linked to actions.
A perfect example here is "panic buying," our thoughts are wrapped up in all the craze and media, our feelings of anxiety, survival and fear kick in and we take action, buying in everything in bulk in order to ride it all out and survive - that's our human mindset. I learned this while studying CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy).
My advice is to work backwards, if you can't control the actions or the way you're feeling, control the source of the issue, your thoughts and what you are thinking about at the time. Find distractions that can occupy the mind and your thoughts, something that will make time fly and give you blinders to what's going on around you for a good while. Working with Wealthy Affiliate, researching keywords, working on images, creating content, training and developing a working website for a better future is a positive step in the right direction and a worthy investment.
