Keeping Sane
Keeping Sane

I believe that we can all admit that we are living in a crazy, and somewhat scary, time. Every few minutes the news inundates us with new closings and cancellations, the Vegas buffets, Disney World, March Madness etc. And, as Mitch eloquently wrote on Saturday, the supermarket shelves are bare. But, during it all, we must make important decisions about our own families, businesses and lives. It can be overwhelming.

 

 

 

 

 

My question to you is how are you keeping yourself sane? How are you maintaining some sense of normalcy? Friday evening long time friends came over and they joined us in our home theater to watch “Bombshell.” Yes, it was weird that we could not hug them hello and that they sat in the row behind us, but it was comforting too. When the film was over we all remarked how nice it felt for two hours to think about something else other than our current circumstances.

 

 

 

 

 

Saturday morning I went to my weekly Weight Watchers meeting. And, while they would only allow forty-four people to attend and the chairs were spaced three feet apart so the meeting had a surreal quality to it, we spent forty-five minutes focusing on us and our individual journeys. The consensus of the attendees was that the meeting was incredibly therapeutic for all who of us attended. But, Weight Watchers announced today, understandably, that all future meetings would only be held online.

 

 

 

 

We are living in very strange times. So how do you navigate it sanely? Or better yet, are you distracting yourself from the current stresses? And, if so, how?

    The impact on every aspect of our lives and those of our families, clients, and friends continues to grow. Somethings will return to normal in a few months, others may not. Small businesses may be irrevocably injured as will their employees. Systems have to be put into place to provide a safety net. And at the heart of it all is the hope that lives will not be lost.

    Working remotely with minimal trips to the office and my son and wife home make for some interesting and stressful times when trying to get work done. So I am trying to take more breaks. Currently having a flat tire replaced at my local Mavis and even stopped at a local diner to eat. Yes they are open and I am happy to support them eventhough only about 5 tables have people. You make it work and do the best you can. Act smart and stay clean. We will survive.

    Thankful that we have the tools to keep people connections. The upside of the situation is that we have a little more time to play catch up with people that we haven't had the time to speak to AND to check in on others if only to connect but also to help those who less fortunate and need a little care.

    Trying to stay as normal as possible in an abnormal time. Not easy to do, but it is a goal.
