Life has certainly changed for all of us in recent days as governments and organizations attempt to respond to the Coronavirus outbreak. Today we talk all about what is going on and try to help you make sense of it all, including addressing what happens to our bodies when we are in crisis mode.
“Even the natural fears and stress of watching the news can trigger a physiological response. Your body doesn’t care where the stress comes from.”
- Jimmy Moore
Since worldwide awareness of the severity of the #coronavirus #COVID19 pandemic has spread over just the past week, it’s having an obvious direct impact on every part of our lives. Normal activities like going to your local gym to workout, shopping at the grocery store or a big box store, or even going to sporting events (which has been entirely shut down across-the-board) as an escape from life have suddenly become a lot more problematic and abnormal.
Whatever your belief is about what’s going on with this, one thing is certain—the stress, anxiety, and other mental and physical effects resulting from the fear of this is very real. And most people don’t know how much they’re harming their health because of it.
People may not even realize just how much their body and mind is being impacted by the constant barrage of negative news about the coronavirus, but the signs are all there if you’re paying attention. Increased hunger, headaches, physical fatigue, anxiety and panic attacks, a rise in blood sugar, diminished ketones, and a whole lot more are all probably happening in you right now.
Self-awareness of this will help you deal with it in the moment and mitigate any lasting effects long after this crisis is over. This is definitely my biggest concern with all of this which is why I’ve been talking about it.
Listen in today as Jimmy breaks down just what happens to our bodies when we are in crisis mode, as well as a special JIMMY RANTS bonus open forum where he addresses listener’s thoughts and fears.
