Episode 171: Are you doing your part? Today we’re touching on the Coronavirus and how you can be a good human during the pandemic.
Think of Others Before Yourself
One of the common things we’ve been hearing is that if you’re actively healthy, Coronavirus isn’t a concern. However, you have to think of the potential spread and how your actions might impact the lives of those around you. For deeper insights, check out Mark Rober’s “How Germs Spread” to see how easy it is to pass germs along.
When they say flatten the curve, it doesn’t mean that people aren’t getting the virus. It means being able to manage it in a way that the hospitals don’t get overloaded.
If you’re using gloves and masks to prevent the spread, don’t throw them onto the sidewalk when you’re done and don’t flush them down the toilet. Dispose of them properly.
Wipe Things Down
Even giving things a quick wipe down with bleach and hot water can help reduce the spread of germs, whether its packages, groceries, or a soccer ball the neighbor’s kid touched.
Look at Ways to Give
People in need and organizations that support them need help now more than ever. Giving is a big part of our financial independence philosophy. Reach out to an organization near and dear to your heart to see how you can help. You can also look close to home. Are there families nearby that could use support?
