In any emergancy situation knowing and understanding the differences between REACTING and RESPONDING could mean seconds between life and death for someone. Or in this case, it very well could’ve meant the difference in creating and dealing with a pandemic or keeping a pandemic from happening.
Between all the tornados and hurricanes I’ve gone through, and dealing with my son at 7 having a twisted fracture in his right femur due to a cyst in his bone and hearing that screeching scream that you never wanna hear coming from your child. I have learned not to get excited in these kinds of situations.
Learning how to stop and take a deep breath, and if need be, taking TWO deep breaths before you find yourself going into panic mode is a way for you to stop and think things through for at least a half a second. This will allow you to RESPOND to the situation. By thinking things through you can then do what needs to be done in an calm and orderly fashion. By simply taking a couple of deep breaths and keeping yourself from going into panic mode, you will find that you can accomplish whatever it may be that needs to get done, quicker than if you REACT.
Understanding that when you react to something, your brain is releasing adreline putting your brain into overdrive, sending you into a total panic mode. By going into panic mode, this is going to send you “spinning” out of control, running around going all the place, not thinking things through and in all actuality, you are doing nothing but causing things to be worse and not getting whatever needs to get done any faster. And more often that not, time is being wasted as well as money is wasted,
The world as a whole, REACTED to this situation that we are finding ourselves in. We as a whole, went into panic mode. All we did to ourselves is cause greater confusion than what there really was. We caused ourselves hysteria. Which I have seen this same thing happen during Katrina. This time though, we repeated the mistake and it ended up being worse.
For example during Katrina, the amount of looting that took place. People stealing huge Big Screen TVs and all….What was that going to do to help that situation?? Sure couldn’t watch TV for a long time being New Orleans was under water for quiet a while. And you can say the same thing has happened with this ridiculous toliet paper situation. Hey man, I’m gonna call it like it is, when you find yourself not being able to go anywhere, whether it’s a hurricane, snow storm…or quarnatined for quiet a while and you bought all this toliet paper to wipe your ass, and you didn’t buy enough food to last you. I guess you’ll be eating that toliet paper huh. (lmfao….I still can’t get over this, I crack up every time . I can’t help it lmfao!!! smh lord have mercy…anyways lmao…)
I really believe that had we as a whole RESPONDED to this situation instead of REACTED, we could have prevented this pandemic!!!! Now that we are in this situation is really important that we stop this mass hysteria. And we need to stop OVER WORRYING ourselves about this. The CDC stated the other night that humans have made things worse than they really are. Now that we are “HERE” taking the correct precautions and NOT OVER WORRYING IS REALLY IMPORTANT SO THAT WE AS A WHOLE CAN BETTER THE SITUATION!!!
This morning i received an email from Apple that gave all the facts and I want to pass this information along. At least I know you are getting the correct information coming from me. Being that I’m a firm believer in making sure others are getting the correct information. EVERYONE NEEDS TO DO THEIR PART IN ORDER TO GET THIS UNDER CONTROL.
First of all, DONT OVER DO SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE NEWS!!! If you’ve noticed I’ve stayed away from social media. Being on Social media at this moment, is ONLY going to cause more aniexty. Stay away from it. Stay quiet.
Steps To Take To Prevent Spreading Coronavirus
- WASH YOUR HANDS WITH SOAP AND WATER!!! You should be doing this anyways!!! The proper way to wash your hands is by using hot water if possible and the say it’s best to use soap from a pump. Lather your hands for at least 15 seconds. Dry your hands with a paper towel. Using that paper towel, turn off the facet.
- These products have been cleared by EPA to stop the spread Lysol, Clorox and Purrell.
- Using Clorox you can disinfect your home. All your counters, light switches, remotes, computer mouse, cabinet doors, cabinet and drawer handles, door knobs. And anything else that is commonly touched and used by family members or others visiting.
- Clorox your toliet and the toliet handle.
- You can use alcohol to sanitize your hands.
- Using dispossible cups
- Not touching your nose, mouth and eyes with your hands
- Know that there’s a difference is cleaning and disinfecting. Cleaning takes the dirt off, Disinfecting kills the germs!!!
This simple steps go a long ways. I don’t understand people are freaking over hand sanitizer when you can make it yourself with just alcohol and aloe vera gel and you can even put in your essential oils for frangrance. …smh…i just don’t get it.. but ok…Here’s the links that was the email that I recieved this morning from Apple giving all of this information
