Take three deep breaths and begin to notice the natural flow of the breath. Be aware of breathing in, exhaling. After each and every inhale and exhale, with your attention to it. Once your mind is calm. Imagine all the human beings in the world, the elderly, people with respiratory problems such as and vulnerable, think of the vulnerable people, think of your families, and tell them That you are healthy. For you to be safe and secure. You are free of the disease. You can get as well. Rinse and repeat, until you feel truly in your heart, I love you, please, please, please, be safe!”.
