    Re: Coping with coronavirus anxiety

    Yeah he clearly just thinks he's invincible and thinks he'll be able to sit at home playing video games instead of working. I agree, it's pretty stupid even if he doesn't care about his own health he might want to be considerate of his housemate and girlfriend.

    There's no good recourse for reporting cause the govt guidelines are all over the place (eg yesterday they said hairdressers appointments had to be limited to 30mins, now they've cancelled that limit... Lucky my industry isn't as easily disrupted as that). In normal circumstances I prefer working at work because I have a lot of trouble staying focused at home. In these circumstances I'm lucky to be working somewhere where I still have a job so just need to take it as it comes.

    I noticed today on Youtube that a public health official in Ottawa said he did not want to lecture people. But then he proceeded to use the terms foolish and stupid and said that, basically, some people are asking for trouble and it will only be their own fault. It was hilarious since his demeanor was so laid back except for what he was saying.

    FACE COVID offers a set of practical steps for responding effectively to the Corona crisis, using the principles of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).

    F = Focus on what's in your control
    A = Acknowledge your thoughts & feelings
    C = Come back into your body
    E = Engage in what you're doing

    C = Committed action
    O = Opening up
    V = Values
    I = Identify resources
    D = Disinfect & distance

    "Funny" about salons ... I was just debating whether to get a tidy-up when covid decided for me.

    Thank goodness for birds. And squirrels. I have spent years discovering the intelligence, social structure, & vocabulary of ravens. And marvelling at the brass squirrels have when defending their food territory again birds 4 times their size
