At the grocery store yesterday, I noticed that people seem dazed.  I watched a shopper in the parking lot as she bewilderedly looked for her car (though I think we’ve all done that) and when I asked the store checker how she was, she paused and honestly said, “I don’t know.  It’s a weird time.”  She was a woman in her late 60’s and I wondered what she was worrying about; Her own health?  A loved ones health?  Whether she would have a job at the store if people were asked to socially isolate and no one was coming in?
This situation is even further unique in that it’s a collective worldwide experience.
So here we are.  We’re all in this together.  Aside from doing what you can do wash your hands frequently, disinfect your surroundings and possibly stock up some items in case social isolation is called for, there’s not much we can do other than do our best to work with our own personal anxieties.  This will not only be beneficial to YOU but to those you care about, especially if you have children.  Remember that emotions are also contagious.
