Our job is to move from Reptilian behavior (fight or flight) reduce the stimulation of negative emotions and give control back to our Neo Cortex (logical / reasoning brain) to take charge of our life again.

These are extraordinary times so go easy on yourself, accept what is, and then in that state, start to reconstruct the different parts of your life that need attention.

Now that your Logical Brain is back in control, let's go to powerful practice No 2.

Powerful Practice No 2:
