4 Crucial Lessons I Learned While Recovering From COVID-19

Even after most of my symptoms had subsided, I continued to have a hard time getting out of bed. Then I was introduced to a new morning routine (inspired by Hal Elrod’s book Miracle Mornings), which involves meditation, affirmations, visualization, exercise, reading, and journaling. It helped me refocus my thoughts, and became a great kickstart to a better daily mindset.

I also embraced other types of self-love, like playing music during the day that would get me dancing and in a great state of mind.

During my journey, I also noticed one thing getting in the way of recovery: my mind wanted to resist my COVID-19 diagnosis. This resistance got in the way of me being able to truly rest. I would lay down, but my mind wasn’t at peace, so my body wasn’t relaxing. The same is probably true for a lot of people who are having a hard time accepting that we’re still in a pandemic. Eckhart Tolle’s thesis to life mastery is “resist nothing”—that can be easier said than done, but it’s especially key to facing COVID-19 with any kind of grace and acceptance.
