Some DO’s and DON’Ts to help us get through this difficult period

In 2020, the spring equinox occurs today Thursday, March 19, which is earlier than it’s been in over a century! This event marks the astronomical first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

In these troubled days, let’s see this as a sign that we’ll get through this pandemic and win the war against this virus.

Meanwhile, even though we are bombarded with all kind of information, here are a few suggestions (or reminders) of don’ts and do’s to get over this in a calmer way.


 

don'ts

 

DON’T

 

  • Think that this virus affects mainly elderly people (in fact, the category that spreads this virus the most is young adults)
  • Read too many news (keep informed but don’t spend your time on news, they are designed to grab our attention and to scare us)
  • Think that the end is near (we’ll get through this; the way China and now South Korea are recovering gives great hope to the rest of the world)
  • Rant about the government doing or not doing something (they do make mistakes, the do have agendas, and we don’t control what they are doing anyway; better count on ourselves whenever possible)
  • Gather (especially in cult places; no god is granting these places immunity)
  • Take any anti-inflammatory drugs (like Ibuprofen or similar, even aspirin, especially if you experience muscle pain or fever)
  • Think that drinking hot water or alcohol has any effect on the virus
  • Stress, panic, fear, lament

 


 

dos

DO

 

  • Wash your hands very often (I guess you already figured this out)
  • Use disinfecting wipes on door handles, handphones, carts
  • Keep your social physical distances
  • Take vitamins C (a lot), D, Zinc, Iron
  • Drink lots of water (and tea, do not abuse alcohol!)
  • Exercise daily
  • Start doing something that you have postponed for too long
  • Do some spring cleaning at home and in your computer
  • Take this opportunity to consider stopping smoking
  • Join the people who celebrate from their balconies or online (lift your and their spirits up)
  • Show the people that you are solid, check your close relations and relatives
  • Check around you if there is a weaker person who needs help (like doing shopping for them or emptying their garbage for example)
  • Create (no better time than now to write, compose, sing, sculpt, draw, build, invent, etc.)
  • Learn (no better time than now to take this online course that will elevate you)
  • Stay po-si-ti-ve!

 


 

We’ll get through this. Together.
