Tips to Deal with the COVID-19 Crisis
I hope this finds you well.
This is trying time for everyone. Anxiety and Fear will settle in if we let it. Gratitude and Faith crowd it out. The two cannot co-exist. It is impossible to feel hopeful and fearful simultaneously.
And we are still---at least so far--here open for you. Legal services are essential and we will continue to handle our cases even if we are one day forced to do it from our homes.
Here are some things that maybe helpful to you or your families in these times:
- If you are now laid off due to the COVID-19 virus, you can apply for unemployment.
- If you have to really prioritize spending and bills, see below for some advice from an expert***.
- If you need to watch a good source of information on the virus itself and how to behave, lookup "Peak Prosperity" on YouTube.
- Turn off the news. It’s bad news anyway.
- Rediscover the simple joys we all tend to forget: jigsaw puzzles, board games, cards, old movies, crafts, de-cluttering, reorganizing, cooking, talking with family.
- Help others. There’s always someone in worse shape than you. Always. Help someone else out and you will feel much better about your life. We were made by the Creator for community. We have been sewing face masks for understaffed medical personnel. The Patterns and info are online.
- Learn a skill. Whether it is a new language, a subject or an ability, you can master a lot in two weeks of effort.
- Call a shut in. They are lonelier than you. Ask them about their hardest time in life. Hint: it won’t be right now!
- Get closer to God. It seems He has allowed many idols of daily life to be removed. No sports, movies, busyness. Maybe start with the book of John and ask Him to reveal Himself to you more deeply.
- Don’t make emotional, hasty decisions. They are seldom good ones. Take your time, do your research, pray, seek wisdom and act only in wisdom and faith. All my worst decisions in life were rushed, or trying to avoid something else.
