We are in Month Four of the Corona Virus Shut Down. If you listened to the episode where I interviewed Vicki Shillington back in April, you will remember the three stages of a crisis. If all played out the way it was supposed to… we would be in stage three. The New Normal, by now. We are not.

What I see, is that we are nowhere near resolution, and have four months of stress, fatigue and history that we are bringing into this next unexpected stage… uncertainty. It is even more essential that we find “ground.”

"Restaurants, Bars, Gyms, and Schools are opening up and we are on our own to figure out how to navigate it.” - Mark Silverman

Today on Mastering Midlife:

  • Three Stages of a Crisis
    • Chaos
    • Acceptance
    • New Normal
  • Stage 2.5 – Uncertainty
  • What do we do about school, work, our health, our finances?
  • With skyrocketing caseloads how do we manage our fear?
  • Balancing tough choices.
  • How to talk to your friends, family and teams at work. You don’t know what people have gone through.
  • Everyone is dealing… give people a break, if you can.
  • In order to do any of this, you must use every one of your self-care tools.
  • I repeat, you must dedicate yourself to self-care.
