The Coronavirus bootcamp: How to thrive during Covid-19
This blog was created in April 2020 as a resource guide and opinion piece. The Coronavirus bootcamp was launched in July, with ‘Harvesting Abundance’. The blog received so many positive feedbacks, it inspired people to start a garden and make Kombucha at home! We will continue with these types of resources. The blog is in list order, from most recent.
How we are keeping you engaged
We understand the physical and emotional toll this virus can have. Therefore, we have included some tips to thrive during the pandemic. We call this the “Coronavirus Bootcamp”.
Unlike many, we were not clueless. As a team, we tracked the virus. As a direct result, we started to prepare long before it was on the government radar. This included the United States and the United Kingdom. Additionally, we called out key officials who failed to do their part. We were troubled by the lack of integrity! Can you imagine the U.S. Surgeon General telling citizens not to wear a mask? Well, that is what Jerome Adams did! As a result, we wrote a piece in April exposing his incompetence. He later backtracked.
Sustainable living is the most viable way to use the resources you have. This was true even before the Coronavirus. Did anyone know how to raise chickens? No, but we learned how to do it. Not that everyone needs to raise chickens. The point here is that it is vitally important to be “self-reliant”. This does not mean you are an isolationist. It means you rely on your own motivating power to be inventive and creative.
Self-Reliance and Action Oriented Goals
There is no blueprint to become “self-reliant”. The most important thing is to just start. You can start by making little changes. Most people talk a good game but they don’t back it up with action. That would be a perfect New Year’s resolution! Let’s all “walk the walk” and not just “talk the talk”. Frankly speaking, actions mean more than just words. Action tells your brain to move forward. Reaction, on the other hand, tells your brain to go backwards. Just keep moving forward!
Many people who moved forward during the lockdowns discovered new passions. Did you know one of the most popular activities during lockdown was bread making? We even cooked up a dozen jars of Ghost Pepper hot sauces!
Misinformation and Dangerous Leadership
Let’s be very clear about something. The lockdown was important to help mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus. However, there is no need for multiple lockdowns. Poor leadership has resulted in multiple ‘redundancies’ and failure to act before the need arise. People like Sadiq Khan are ‘seriously flawed‘ individuals in power. Complacency can lead to serious consequences. It is through vigilance and consistency can Covid-19 be quelled. Don’t ‘get the Coronavirus jab’ IF you still have more questions about the vaccine.
Liberal MP Kevin Andrews says we are “in danger” of losing democratic Australia when we see actions and practices the likes of which Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews is putting in place. Mr Andrews said the Victorian premier “ignored the normal processes of cabinet” and had a “hand selected group of people”. “(Andrews) has put in place dictates to the people of Victoria which are not precise, they’re not consistent, and they’re not proportionate to the risks involved,” he told Sky News host Alan Jones. “Look at the situation now. You’ve got some outbreaks in certain suburbs of Melbourne, why should the people hundreds of kilometres away in Mildura or Portland … be subject to the same restrictions as people in the very areas where these infections are occurring? “It’s not proportionate.”
