Hello friend. I need you to hear something: Satan is not “sheltered-in”. He is ON THE PROWL. He sees that you are off your routine. He sees that you are scared. He sees that you are vulnerable. He has no compassion for your current situation. He does not care that you have been laid off or that you are stressed from the work you have to do now. Satan wants you to believe that you have NO control over this current situation–and that is when he attacks.
We see data charts everywhere reporting on the COVID-19 global pandemic. We have heard things like: data can be skewed, don’t believe everything media tells you, this is too political. Though I do not really want to voice an opinion on those statements, I do believe that we should control what we can control. I want to help you identify data that YOU can control.
As we are at home, lets work to develop healthy habits that will have a positive effect on our lives long-term. There can be much satisfaction in the feeling of accomplishing something. I know many of us feel a positive emotional boost whenever we accomplish a task.
If you are like me, you might also feel anxiety of not knowing how long we will be sheltered-in. I remember thinking on March 16th that we would be good to go April 6th. That was the day schools were supposed to be let back in.
That was the day I could see in my head. Since then, we have been told to stay home until April 30th. That date could easily be moved back with one press conference. Unfortunately, we do not have a set date that we will be able to return to life as we knew it before. I have shared some data charts for you to keep track two weeks at a time. It makes me feel like I have a better handle on things when I can just take it two weeks at a time.
Join me by downloading the charts and keeping up with your developments of new, healthy habits. I want to hear if the visual data displayed encourages you and helps you as you work towards developing your new normal. As I did with the New Normal Designs, I have included a blank copy so that you can write in what you are focused on
Can’t wait to see your charts!
