living with covid-19

we are all feeling the impact of covid-19 in our own unique way. you are not alone!

covid-19 physically isolated many of us for a long period of time away from our families, our friends, from our work colleagues and swept away our daily rhythm of life. a lot of people found their daily in-person interactions were limited to the few people they lived with and a lot of us found our social interactions were made through digital technology.

re- entry into the ‘new normal’ can make us anxious and it is important for us to realise that these anxious thoughts/perceptions and the amount of attention that we give to them cause them to grow in intensity. the brilliant thing though is that this process is reversible and we can change these assumptions by gently calming ourselves with soothing inner self talk and consistently tapping into positive stimuli. if we interrupt the negative self-talk, start being kinder with our thinking and distracting ourselves, our thoughts, feelings and beliefs will also change over time and we become healthier. after a while you’ve turned life around. that’s the process and anyone can do it and you can start right now.

the pandemic transformed the way we all communicate, forcing employees, families and friends to virtually connect. it was quickly evident that a deeper more authentic virtual experience was urgently needed to maintain our integrity of self, affirm our place in the global village and enrich and protect our mental wellness.

the pandemic inspired us to put together a set of practices, to connect us all in the virtual global village thus creating a community to counter the negative impacts of pandemic social isolation. the practices we use are western science based practices that are communicated in the english language that promote mental wellness that then creates a meaningful, healthy life.

every human needs to take care of their mental wellness daily. everything we do starts with the first thought. living from a stress response state can take an almighty toll on our minds and bodies. nourish your mental wellness daily, sweep away the ants (automatic negative thoughts) to create a resilient, healthy, joyful mind.

iamlovingkindnessnetwork daily sessions creates a momentum in people’s lives to turn up daily, to protect & nurture their mental wellness whilst holding a virtual space for others. 

we hope to see you soon & often

isolation & loneliness 

covid-19 either compounded this feeling of loneliness or created a new feeling of loneliness – and that is what it is is a feeling. 

covid-19 physically isolated many of us for a long period of time away from our families, our friends, from our work colleagues and swept away our daily rhythm of life.

a lot of people found their daily in-person interactions were limited to the few people they lived with and a lot of us found our social interactions were made through digital technology. 

you might be someone who found that you normally were ok about spending lots of time alone and then because of a forced social decision that we had to stay at home and that freedom was taken away from us, what surfaced was a need to be social, to be seen and to be heard. 

one of the reasons loneliness is so bad for us is because it makes it harder for us to control our habits and behaviour. tests by the US psychologists Roy Baumeister and Jean Twenge in 2001 showed that the expectation of isolation reduces our willpower and perseverance, and makes it harder to regulate our behaviour: lonely middle-aged adults drink more alcohol, have unhealthier diets and take less exercise than the socially contented. drug abuse and bulimia nervosa are linked to loneliness. there are different reasons why lonely people find it hard to keep positive and adopt unhealthy habits but low self-esteem and a wish escape the feeling of loneliness can be factors.

it is important for us to realise that these negative thoughts/patterns and the amount of attention that we give to them cause them to grow in intensity. the brilliant thing though is that this process is reversible and we can change our beliefs by challenging them. if we interrupt the negative self-talk, start being kinder with our thinking and distracting ourselves, our thoughts, feelings and beliefs will also change over time and we become healthier. after a while you’ve turned life around. that’s the process and anyone can do it and you can start right now.

being human we are hardwired to connect – connection does matter. again this is individual to everyone and it takes time and kindness to ourselves to establish connection. a result of connection is we are happier and more resilient and life tends to get better.

social skills are like muscles and they strengthen the more we use them and weaken when we use them less. part of the reason for our social unease is triggered subconsciously by the brain and autonomic nervous system. the amygdala, a part of the brain, is constantly monitoring the environment we are in, assessing if someone or something may be a threat and sending signals throughout the body accordingly. (think “fight, flight, or freeze.”) having a pet, roommate, or family member occasionally crossing our path in lock down and our interactions limited to social media and an occasional facetime conversation, our brain has grown accustomed to a much different set of stimuli than having activity all around us to keep us busy and out of our own negative thinking.

instead of being locked into the cycle of  disproportionate negative thinking we can lift our selves into the positive and really effortlessly from the comfort from our homes reap the amazing benefits of having positive stimuli and connection on a daily basis.

at iamlovingkindnessnetwork our daily virtual sessions are designed to give everyone the space to be seen and for members to hear motivating and uplifting content in a safe and loving virtual environment.

stress response thinkings

as humans we are hard wired with a stress response to keep us safe. however due to the pandemic we have craved safety and assurance. we have focused on the news more than usual to give us the insights which daily have been so uncertain.

coupled with having our world turned upside down this sets off the ants (automatic negative thoughts) and over time this stress response can cause anxiety, back pain, overwhelm, stress, social anxiety, paranoia, anger, over eating, over reacting, poor cognitive responses, poor decision making.

iamlovingkindnessnetwork is not a static program. we are a ‘fluid’ live service. we are part of our members daily lives. we livestream our morning and evening sessions over zoom which are designed to flood our members with positivity and sweep away the daily ‘ants’ residue that can cause problems later.

the practices we use in our sessions are really easy to do, well known and science based. the experience of just one session gives an overall sense of well-being for our members and attended regularly will promote mental wellness that can effectively transform people’s lives.

keep you uplifted every day

you've got this

be aware of your self-talk.  pay attention to the voice within your head and notice when you are experiencing a negative thought. observe that negative thought or fear and make note of it’s presence. beware not to add additional worries or fears onto this thought.  if your mind begins to do that, make sure you self soothe and talk yourself round coach yourself through the moment as if you were your very best friend.

iamlovingkindnessnetwork our sessions are dedicated to filling our members to the brim with positivity and lovingkindness gems so you can relax and feel good every day.

feel good every day!

burnout? ouch! what have you been saying to yourself!

“it’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. and once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.”
