Choose F.A.I.T.H

Choose F.A.I.T.H

Welcome to Take 5, the 5-min broadcast with Toyin Fasosin. In light of the covid-19 pandemic, Choose F.A.I.T.H!

A few days ago we made a choice to Say No to F.E.A.R!

Today we Choose F.A.I.T.H! – Faith

F for Face your fears: write out exactly what you fear and ways to mitigate the effects. Are you afraid you’ll get infected? Write down ways to reduce your risk: proper hand washing, social distancing, adequate sleep, exercise and other things to boost your immunity

A for Adapt: to adapt means to modify/adjust based on changing circumstances. Be flexible, things are pretty fluid right now as updates come from the government. Social distancing and shelter in place directives do not equate to isolation, stay connected via phone, video calls, text etc

I for Influence: be a positive role model in your world. Be an encourager and a support. People are sensitive to panic or fear expressed by those around them especially family. Fear is contagious, so is calm. Model calm as a caregiver or authority figure especially with your young children

T for Take charge: take charge of the things you can control. Take charge of your thoughts (be positive) take charge of your emotions (focus on things and people you love), take charge of your body (eat right, get adequate sleep, exercise)

H for Hope: a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. Hope for a favorable outcome. Yes, take preventive measures, practice safety and self-care, follow government directives, go through the course of treatment BUT keep expecting it to end well. Are you practicing social distancing? look forward to the day when the tide will turn and there will be an easing off of restrictions, are you in quarantine? Expect to be cleared. Are you diagnosed with covid-19? Expect to recover.

Keep on keeping on So, remember to Choose F.A.I.T.H! Face your fears, Adapt, Influence, Take charge & Hope

Say No to F.E.A.R

Say No to F.E.A.R

Welcome to Take 5, the 5-min broadcast with Toyin Fasosin. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Say No to F.E.A.R!

F for Foreboding – stop expecting the worst, it raises your blood pressure and anxiety levels.

E for Excessive updates– limit the frequency of information updates. Turn off the news & social media

A for Anxiety – listen to music, journal, read, dance, exercise, call a friend, FaceTime a friend,

R for Rebellion– follow guidelines from the Health Department/Government. You might not be at risk, but you could become a host and transmit to someone else who is immunocompromised

Remember to Say No to F.E.A.R! No to Foreboding, No to Excessive updates, No to Anxiety, and No to Rebellion.
