How do we grieve the loss of our “normal” and move onto what is now our reality?

How do we grieve the loss of our “normal” and move onto what is now our reality?

Brene Brown is a genius at helping us find, define and then support our feelings and reactionary characteristics. She speaks about vulnerability and shame which are seldom topics of keynotes; working with teams and coaching leaders in organizations. (more about Brene and her marvelous work)

I woke up to listening to Brene this morning and it has changed my entire thought process around these remarkable, fast-paced, dramatic changes in our world. She says we are grieving the “loss of normal”. She suggests that we limit the intake of news and social media and increase our body movement. The body stores anxiety so movement is great for relieving our stress and shifting us out of OMG, 24/7.

My recommendation and coaching with my clients and audiences is to take care of you. Many don’t know how and have never thought of themselves first. It is time to learn. Otherwise, we will store our anxiety and weariness in our bodies until we no longer can cope. So how do you love yourself? Try doing for you that which you do for the others you adore and love. Deep caring is exactly what you need right now.

May I help?
