This will most likely be one of the few blog posts I share regarding the coronavirus. Reality is that we all have to deal with it in some capacity. It sucks, but it’s life right now.
My favorite author, Mark Manson, wrote a wonderful article on the reality of dealing with the coronavirus – and how to deal with it. My wife, who is a therapist, read the article and loved it! So, that was good enough for me! Here’s the link:
- Coronavirus: Surviving the Looming Mental Health Crisis – https://markmanson.net/coronavirus-mental-health-crisis
I’ve read it three times, to make sure I digest it fully and think hard about how to make the best of a bad situation.
One thing that hasn’t changed for me – my early morning workout. I still start my workouts on most days between 5am and 5:30am on weekdays, and between 6:30am and 7am on weekends. Talk about social distancing – I’m lucky to see one or two people out THAT early in the morning! I’ve also dedicated time to reading again; read three books last week and plan to start another book today. If you want a few cheap/free Kindle books, check out my blog post “do you like to read?” for some suggestions.
Last thoughts: What happens if this lasts for another 3 to 6 months? How will it change your life? What becomes the new “normal?” Read the article if you don’t have answers to these questions.
Hang in there, friends!
