Times of crises: What can we do?

Soothing words in the current times

The current crisis poses great challenges for all of us. The situation and its consequences are new for all of us and we have to deal with it.

Together we will manage to master this situation:

Many people are anxious and insecure at the moment. They do not know what to do, how to behave or what to expect.
Let us take a neutral, objective look at the current situation:
What should we be doing right now?

1. stay calm
Stay calm and don’t spread panic.
Panic is counterproductive:

  • Aggression in the supermarket leads to aggression in the supermarket.
  • Do not spread rumors… stay objective
  • Every challenge is also an opportunity for us all. Assume self-responsibility

2. be considerate
If you are well and your immune system is strong, there is a chance that you will not even notice that you have anything. However, this does not apply to all people and therefore it is important to take responsibility:

  • Keep your distance to your fellow human beings – no matter what your personal opinion is or how difficult it is for you personally.

3. stay well
Of course, it is especially important that you stay well. At the moment there are no drugs for the actually pathogens. But you can support your body by strengthening your defenses and nurturing your immune system. This applies forever and not only nowadays:

  • Eat a holistic and balanced diet: especially vitamins, minerals and watch out for good
  • Drink plenty of water!
  • Drink regularly.
  • Get fresh air and vitamin D regularly.
  • Go for a walk (as long as your area is not declared a restricted zone). Of course, avoid crowds and try to find a route where there is enough room for everyone to avoid each other considerately. Go into the forest, to the beach, out into nature.
  • Ventilate your home and, if possible, filter your rooms with air filters.
  • Stay not only physically but also mentally healthy. Avoid conversations that cause fear or panic. Be concerned with positive things.

4. stay hygienic
Pathogens are mainly transmitted via the hands:Times of crises: What can we do? 2

  • wash hands regularly with soap under warm water: rub for at least 20 seconds. Do not forget the space between the fingers and the back of the hands. Rinse with plenty of warm water and everything is clean again!
  • Try to keep your hands away from your face.
  • Proper coughing or sneezing: in the crook of your arm. Your fellow men will be grateful to you.
  • Avoid shaking hands, hugs and kisses. In this case, it is considerateness and not rude. Greet each other with your feet ;-), if there is no other way.

With these simple measures, you can avert much, much disaster!

5. stay informed
… but don’t go mad.
Life tickers with the smallest, sometimes incorrect details of the location can cause anxiety: Fear causes panic.

  • Keep the overview to protect yourself.
  • Use the rest of the time for nice things: relax, enjoy the time and everything that makes you happy in your life.

6. stay at home
Even if it is not easy for some, please stay at home and only leave if you absolutely have to. Act responsibly and avoid the possible risk of infection and spread:

  • Help with boredom: Board games, reports, books and instead of going out for coffee with your best friend, you can use the phone.

7. care
do you really need those panic buying? Having a few groceries in the house to last a week is not wrong and you don’t need as much as you think. Be considerate of others. There’s enough for everyone. If possible, use the opportunity of online shopping.

What can we expect?

It is what it is and we are in an exceptional situation.
Our advice is and remains: Take care of your well-being!
We will probably experience partial overloading of our health system. We will experience that doctors and nursing staff will be at the edge of their possibilities and we will witness how people will get healthy again and emerge from the situation strengthened.
Take care of your well-being! The fewer people endanger their well-being, the easier it is for everyone.
Perhaps it is not always possible to prevent a widespread spread. However, it makes sense if we all take good care of ourselves – try to prevent diseases.
Maybe we can get more people to take care of their immune system and general life situation so that we are strengthened holistically.

Socially and socially

  • The closure of schools and daycare centers will also present many parents with major challenges. Not all of them have the opportunity to work from home while taking care of their children.
  • People have different opinions and views on current protective measures. Be considerate! Everyone deals with a sensitive issue in their own way. Talk about it instead of arguing.

Let’s be strong together by being mentally close to each other, but physically keeping a hygienic distance.

Economic

The economic consequences will be obvious.
The longer this crisis lasts, the more shops will close and the more jobs will be lost. This is an unpleasant truth that we must accept. But even that is no reason to panic, but rather an incentive to overcome this crisis as quickly, calmly, effectively and, above all, TOGETHER.

The best attitude

Let us, therefore, be responsible and relaxed.

We hope we were able to inform you well and that we could calm you down a little bit. Fear paralyzes us and the subsequent panic leads to many problems that we cannot use at the moment.
