THE CORONAVIRUS, SPIRITUALITY, STAYING CALM,  AND ESTATE PLANNING IN MIAMI BEACH, FL- PART II

The Coronavirus pandemic is real. As the virus spreads throughout our nation and the world, we all realize that our lives are fragile and our health is a gift to be treasured. The virus has accelerated the procrastinators need to wait another week, month, or year; pushing people to contact an experienced attorney and get their estate planning done. Wills and trusts are a must; with proper estate planning in Miami Beach, FL you can protect your assets and loved ones and take control of your planning while you are alive and well. At Ally M. Glaser, P.A., you will get personalized attention, experience, knowledge, and guidance as to the best plan for your special unique situation. We all have different scenarios and I treat them all with the sensitivity that they deserve.  

WHAT CAN WE DO DURING THIS QUARANTINE TIME TO RELAX? WHAT IS A GRATITUDE JOURNAL? 

For most people, it is extremely difficult to stay in the home disconnected from your extended family, friends, and loved ones. If you are healthy and feeling grateful, you can begin a gratitude journal. This helps during difficult times or times of loneliness to keep our moods lifted. The journaling can be as easy as jotting down a few notes or a deeper process of writing in a notebook upon waking and allowing the pen to flow freely for 10 minutes each morning. A great book about getting to know ourselves better through journaling is The Artists Way by Julia Cameron. I journal every day and have done so for over 20 years, I started with this book and it changed my life for the better. You can buy the starter kit on Amazon.com which includes the book and the morning pages journal. 

WHAT IS MEDITATION AND HOW DOES IT HELP YOU? 

Meditation is a way to relax the mind and quiet your thoughts. It can be as simple as sitting quietly for 10-20 minutes each day. I start my day by journaling, then meditate for about 25 minutes and then usually do some yoga before I begin my life as an estate planning and probate attorney in Miami Beach, FL. I find it helpful as I think clearer and am more relaxed and able to deal with life and all of its complexities and uncertainties.   

WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO MEDITATE OR JOURNAL? ARE THERE ANY GOOD  BOOKS TO READ THAT MIGHT MAKE ME FEEL BETTER?

While journaling, meditation, and yoga can help to quiet the mind and body and boost your immune system, not everyone is ready for this. Thus, there are excellent spiritual books that you can read and enjoy. My favorite for all ages and all beliefs are The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz and The Power of Intention by Dr. Wayne Dyer. Dr. Wayne Dyer says it best“if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
