Novak Djokovic’s passionate coronavirus message: ‘This is the time for us to get together and unite’
World No 1 Novak Djokovic has taken to social media to post a heartfelt message about the ongoing battle against the coronavirus pandemic, saying “this is the time for all of us to get together and unite”.
COVID-19 has already claimed the lives of nearly 15,000 people worldwide while almost 350,000 cases have been reported.
Many countries have gone on full lockdown while travel bans are currently in place by the majority of countries.
Djokovic feels now is the time to “spend quality time with our family at home” and “enjoy the little things in life”.
“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 unite,” the Serb wrote.
“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.
“I pray for the health and healing of you. May God heal any sickness you have physical, mental or spiritual. May he give you health, energy and joy today.

“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 became addicted to this idea that we always need to be somewhere else and do something productive.
“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.”
