Djokovic Amid Coronavirus: Stays At Home And Prays

STARNBERG, March 22, 2020

After Swiss tennis star Roger Federer, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic also asked people to do the right thing in the fight against the spread of the coronavirus. “Please stay at home,” was one of the messages by the 32-year-old Serb.

The 17-time Grand Slam champion also sent his “support and prayers” to his followers and also expressed his hope that people can use this time to “contemplate” their lives and “regenerate on every level of our beings.”

The reigning Wimbledon and Australian Open champion posted on Instagram:

“Very challenging times for everyone. I am sending support and prayers. Please stay at home in quarantine and help frontline medical people to help all the people infected and in need. Let’s not burden them in these critical times more than they already are.

“It’s all about perspective. We live in a fast-paced modern life. Constantly on the go. We rarely get to stop and contemplate our lives. We become addicted to this idea that we always need to be somewhere else and do something productive.

“I am all about being productive and proactive but in harmony with peace and innerstanding of our true essence. We can’t be healthy if our world isn’t healthy.

“This is the time for all of us to get together and united. Let’s really try to spend quality time with our family at home, enjoy the little things in life. Let’s try to laugh, love and dedicate time to inner work. Pray, meditate, eat healthy, play music, sing, dance, read, write, workout, sleep well, train our brains to think good thoughts… This is a great opportunity to do that.

“By being at home we will not only hopefully help to slow the spread of this virus, but we will also give ourselves a chance to truly address certain emotions and subconscious programs that have been suppressed and ignored.

‘We need to dig deep now and regenerate on every level of our beings. Only like that we will be able to raise our own vibration and help our Mother Earth heal quicker.

‘We are all ONE. We all live in the same world. Please treat people and nature like you would treat yourself. God bless you all. We will be stronger and more united, I am sure.”
