Tips to kicking the coronavirus blues: Howdy folks! I hope this finds you doing well and in high spirits. That might be a challenge for some of you…
Are you getting fed up with this “V” (virus) thing? Maybe this quarantine has you going bat-spit crazy. Perhaps you’re wanting to flip off this freaking virus thing and move the flock forward in your lives already!!
Copy that, I’m there too (been there for a while!). That’s why I’m coming to you with some tips that might help crush the corona blues.
I don’t know much, but I do know this: Human potential is infinite. The power of human thought, energy, and heart is ferociously powerful.
Now, I don’t want to come off as all Pollyanna here, but there is hard-core evidence that our thoughts and attitudes can change lives. There is no limit to the transformations we can make if we simply choose to shift our perception. How?
Tips for Flipping (off) the Corona Virus Blues
~Sing it Frankie!: Frank Sinatra nailed it when he crooned about accentuating the positive and eliminating the negative. I realize this may seem a bit fluff ‘n stuff in the midst of this virus-viciousness, but concentrating on what is good and what is working, will absolutely set the scene for the better. If you’re feeling victimized by the virus, try to recall Sinatra’s melodic advice:
“Latch on to the affirmative, don’t mess with Mister In-between. You gotta spread joy up to the maximum, bring gloom down to the minimum. Have faith or pandemonium’s liable to walk upon the scene.”~Frank Sinatra
Good tune and good advice!
~One Bad Apple: Doesn’t have to spoil the whole bunch. Not always. Did you know there is such a thing as ‘good’ viruses? Yeah! True, on the whole, a virus is a bugger-ball of bad juju, but not all viruses are all bad.
Did you know there are natural viruses squatting in our digestive tubing? Yep, and some of these viruses are actually beneficial as the first defense against nasty afflictions caused by bad bacteria bunching up in our bowels. Pretty nifty, eh? I’ve got more examples of good viruses and their effects here.
All this to say, yeah, the virus-scene is bad…but it’s not ALL bad. I’m simply inviting a shift in perspective.
~Horns holding up the Halo: The corona virus got its name because the virus particle has the appearance of having a halo (the word corona in Latin means halo/crown). Has the quarantine given you time to rethink your life? Spend more time with your kids? Resurrect some dreams you had on hold before the quarantine?
You get my drift. For every evil, there is always a virtue. Consider the halo perching upon the horns. This could be an epic time for us to weave a cocoon of good mojo, only to break out of incubation with a renewed sense of purpose and perspective.

As always, thanks so much for reading and hanging out with me. To be sure, we WILL get through this, and we have the ability to come out of this BETTER than ever!
