How do you stay positively balanced and focused in the face of the Corona crisis?

Questions we focused on:

 How do you stay positively balanced and focused during times of crisis?
 How do you survive the crisis physically, mentally and spiritually?
 What is the influence and power of collective energy and how do you harness it in a positive way?

The points we covered:

A. Identify the four vectors of the crisis:
1) The Corona virus
2) Global stock markets implosions (a viral influence by itself)
3) Panic triggered by #1 and by #2 (a viral influence by itself)
4) All secondary and tertiary consequences and side effects, in some cases more devastating than the first three vectors.

B. Apply a three-fold strategy to respond effectively and triage separately each of the four vectors, not as a panic-based aggregate:
1) What must do to take care of your health and well-being?
2) What must you do to deliver on your mission-critical commitments?
3) Pivot from defense to offense - how can this situation be an opportunity to create and accelerate a desired future?

C. Boost your immunity:
1) Focus on what you can control: your mental focus, what you take in, and your response.
2) Attend to routines and rituals that build clarity, energy and well-being.
3) Pivot from chaos to calm, confidence and coherence of thought.
4) Cultivate a community that generates individual and collective immunity.
