I stopped going to the gym 4 weeks ago. I've gained 6 pounds. I've never done well with the flu, this thing I don't want to get.So who here has changed their daily life so far?
Just because you're OK with millions of folks dying over a few % of GDP, doesn't mean that's OK for everyone else.Just because you are hunky dory about living on a farm, doesn’t mean that’s ok for everyone else.
One of my favorite posts in this thread.This thread would be great starting point for a PHD thesis on human behavior to a real or perceived danger.
I guess we will see which way was better in hindsight.July or August?!
Just let the 0.6% die and end containment honestly. That’s what we do with the flu. This is NOT WORTH the economic cost.
Look at what UK is doing. I think we are WAY over reacting here.
Amen brother. We are combining the 2 on a daily basis.
- If you are quarantined, you can exercise. If you aren't, get out and get some fresh air. Get moving. Get your adrenaline going. Release some of those stress endorphins. Take a longer walk than you have taken before, and do it again tomorrow.
- Invest in the kids. Really be present for any younger ones you have around. Intentional. Focused. They might be stressed also, but YOU can remedy that simply by meeting their emotional needs. Be there. Invest. Calm. Engage.
This leads to an interesting question. As business owners, we deal with the unknown all the time. In fact, the unknown is pretty much the only truth that we know.I shared what I shared because this thread had me legit panicked for about 4 hours a few days ago. Some people have shared some seemingly credible scary stuff on here.
The unknown nature of this gave my brain fits, especially when I asked myself, "What if my kids got the possibly weaponized never seen before world infecting killer virus for which we have no cure?"
Brain. Stopped. Working.
My fear felt irrational.
So I started seeking out the counterpoints. I had to know to what level of fear was rational.
And if I struggled with this kind of emotion, then others probably are/have.
That said, I personally stocked up because it is better to have and not need than need and not have.
