6 Positive Ways To Calm Coronavirus Anxiety

“As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation — either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

How NOT to Panic-The Wallet Incident

cardwalletDontPanic

Last night My Hubby came home from an out of town trip. Ok so what’s the not to panic part about this?? I’ll tell you what…this morning when we were unpacking, his wallet wasn’t to be seen anywhere! I actually started freaking out, considering all the worst possible scenarios. Firstly, what was in that wallet??Credit cards, Debit cards, Identity card, Pan card among other paper work. No money thank god..Cause during the trip he kept the money in another pocket.

Irrespective of that..i started telling him…what’s wrong with you..why cant you be more careful? What if whoever found it uses your credit cards..oh god oh god…etc etc…you know us nagging wives!!! To which he gave an explanation (poor thing), that it probably got snipped during his journey..Cause he was sure he had it on him. But I couldn’t stop freaking out but, well he was surprisingly calm. Hmm..I wonder why???

After I finished my panicking (nearly 10 minutes) ..i started thinking..we can always handle this situation. There has got to be a solution to this…and then I panic again…seeing which my darling hubby says, “don’t worry! I will handle it. I needed new cards anyway..the other ones were getting too old. And I will make a stay on them as well so no one can use them. The paper work wasn’t that necessary. I will have it replaced.” …and he went on about how it was all ok. All the time he was explaining I was getting calmer and calmer and finally I was totally fine.

When I was sitting and thinking about the whole situation, I realized that my hubby was just reinforcing what I keep saying to myself and to others…to think positively in all situations or rather to see the positives in all situations. And the best part was that before I could start thinking positively he already had the solution to the problem. Smarty Pants Hubby!! This in turn made me stop panicking. Hmm…now I know why he was so calm? He already had a solution to the problem.

So bottom line before you start panicking about any given situation, first think of a solution to the problem and then well, you won’t even need to panic.

Have any of you ever had any panicky situations recently? Let me know how you handled them. I might learn a thing or two. Do leave a comment so I know…

I am still Positively Learning 🙂  Are you?

(Thank you Hubby dearest, I don’t know what I would do without you around to straighten me out! You make me learn something new everyday.)
