I’m not a doctor. I don’t have a clue about the corona virus and please refrain from commenting on the specifics - there are plenty of online resources for those interested. I do want to talk about the effects of it on your journey though.
From what I’ve been seeing locally, gatherings of thousands of people are being cancelled/postponed. Mostly college classes, grade schools, major sporting events, and conventions.
If you have a child in school, and their school chooses the online route for the rest of the semester, you’re now gonna find a disruption into your routine. That’s what this post is about. I beg you - stay on topic within this post.
🚨 If you dropped your kids off at school and went to the gym, you’re gonna need a plan B.
🚨 If you’re used to eating a lunch by yourself because you’re the only one home, you’re gonna need a plan B.
🚨 If you have a kid in college who is now home early, expect to have a house full of college students who like to order pizza. Have a plan B.
🚨 If you’re now suddenly working from home, your pantry is far more accessible than it is from your office. Have a plan B.
🚨 If you’re now working from home, your parking space is a lot closer. The restroom is a lot closer. Your step count will reflect that. Have a plan B.
🚨 The added stress, the change in your routines and lifestyle will require you to adjust. You’re capable of doing so!
The more you start thinking about that now, the more prepared you will be for the unexpected. It’s totally manageable, it’s just gonna take you thinking through the scenarios and a plan.
