To help inspire and keep us focused on the light at the end of the tunnel, The Doctors welcome Dr. Deepak Chopra who shares how we can best cope with collective grief connected to the pandemic and COVID-19.
The alternative medicine advocate says once someone finds peace with the pandemic and all of its effects on our lives, one can find meaning in it. Deepak says, "We took our existence for granted" and says living in a "constant panic mode" will overstimulate our sympathetic nervous system, which he says can lead to issues with inflammation and the immune system.
He says in addition to a vaccine, "We need a more peaceful, just sustainable, healthier, and joyful world." To help connect isolated people and bring about the change he's advocating for, his organization has created The Never Alone Initiative.
"This is a moment of choice. Which way are we going to go? Are we going to stay selfish, or are we going to emerge into a new reality?” he asks Dr. Ian Smith.
One important aspect of dealing with grief is staying grounded and centered, and Deepak shares his tips on staying centered. In times of instability, he recommends:
- Take a few deep breaths
- Observe the sensation in your body
- Make a choice with awareness
According to Deepak, this will help you bypass your reactive response to not being centered or connected. "Pause, notice and choose," he adds.
