Don’t feel like getting things done right now? You are not alone!
If you’ve found yourself trying to decide whether you should bake bread, join a meditation webinar, create a color-coded home-school schedule, or just curl up in a ball and cry, you’re not alone.
As we stay at home in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, we are being inundated not only with a storm of anxiety-inducing news but with an onslaught of suggestions for ‘making the most’ of our (alleged) extra time.

The sun will rise. We will emerge from our lock-downs like a hungry animal crawling out of its cave after the winter-hibernation.
The hugely inconvenient disruption to our lives will come to an end at some time. But the massive fall-out will linger a lot longer than the fairly sudden stop to just everything we were familiar with. Whilst economists will argue whether we now have a recession or depression, the world will go into a long re-awakening after the social and economic devastation caused by a tiny unseen virus.

At the beginning of a disease outbreak, most people are usually in denial. Some do not believe the disease exists, while some do not think it could get to them. As the outbreak spreads, different groups of people begin to see reality. By the time it is declared to be a pandemic, alarm bells of panic will be ringing worldwide.
However, panicking is not the way to face a pandemic. Panicking does not do you any good, only harm. When people panic, they tend to overreact and make decisions that are not well thought out. Some people will start hoarding goods and create artificial shortages, which fuel more panic. The economic effects alone usually take a long time to recover from, and this is true for individuals like you and me and the whole nation alike. [Read more…]
