I take Lemon Essential Oil to help me when my allergies are in overdrive. There’s a lot of information being thrown at us right now on how to prevent getting the Coronavirus. One is about drinking warm lemon water. To be honest, I don’t know if it would prevent it. But if you have lemons, it isn’t going to hurt to put them to use.
What do we know for sure about the benefits of lemons? We know they are an excellent source of Vitamin C. We know that lemons aid in digestion. We know they help with asthmatic episodes or aid in respiratory function. The list goes on and on.
There are several articles I have received that discuss what we can do to better safeguard against getting the Coronavirus. All agree to drink warm fluids. As the virus cannot survive once it hits our stomachs.
Now I’ve read conflicting reports on whether or not taking supplements that improve immune function can even help in this situation. Here’s my personal opinion-what I’m seeing is people with health issues that are dying from the virus. People of advanced age or they have other health issues that are taxing their immune system already. What does it hurt to boost your immune system? What will it hurt to add lemon to your water?
When this virus has run its course. When it’s taken it’s last victim. When quarantine is up. When the smoke clears. What will we have taken from this experience? Will we understand better need as opposed to want?
Will our priorities have changed? Will we take time in the future for those little moments? Will we realize the worth of our loved ones more? Will we appreciate freedom more than ever? Will we take the moments from quarantine with our loved ones and remember that some of life’s most precious moments are about getting back to basics? Will we realize that some things are just unnecessary?
Life is about growth. About change. Some of our most profound evolutions of self are brought about by traumatic events. Unexpected, traumatic events. We grow, we shift, we evolve. There’s going to be major changes for everyone. A new norm when all is said and done.
It takes the same amount of energy to say something positive as it does to say something negative. We are all in the same situation. Some people may have it harder than others. Remember this when you’re out shopping for last minute items. Maybe you can give a kind word to a stranger. Give blessings. It takes seconds to wish someone well. In a time when the world seems to have gone crazy-a kind word just might be what someone needs when they feel their world is falling apart.
Times are changing. Things I never thought I’d see in my lifetime are happening now. I don’t know what’s to come. None of us do. We have to be aware and do the best we can to be prepared. Which is hard to do with people hoarding necessities. Some people have prepared for themselves and others that may need help. Some unfortunately are hoarded necessities for opportunistic reasons.
We have seen the good in people and we have seen the bad. Which will you focus on? Honestly I’ve seen a lot more good than bad. I see people reaching out checking on people. I see grocery clerks going out of their way to help people save money while working extra hard amongst the public during this crisis. I see people in the medical field risking their own health to help others. I see accountants still doing taxes. I see delivery services still trying their best to meet high demand. I see grocery stores setting up hours just for the elderly to shop.
Yes, it’s bad right now. We need to be careful and to take care. We need to watch out for those who might take advantage of this situation in one form or another. But we cannot hold onto the negative. We have to do the best we can with a really bad situation. We need to look at what we have, re-evaluate our priorities now and for when this is over. We need to find the positive and find things to laugh about. We need to do our best to stay positive. When it comes down to it, this is out of our hands. So we need to pray, then pray some more. Sending good thoughts out to all. Stay safe and angels all around you!
