Everyone talking about “re focusing on what matters”, or “putting things in perspective “... I’m a skeptical and believe after this COVID madness is gone, we will all go back to our old selfish self... I love the fact our carbon footprint is much lower now, but again, believe this will be short lived. What do you think?
How has COVID impacted you? I'm in a very rural county and now WFH. 10 deaths so far that were all LTC to my knowledge. The only person I've seen wear a mask in the last month was me. We've had 100 cases or so confirmed which were all LTC or from a factory on the edge of our county. How are you city folk doing? Sing me the song of your people.
Business ideas in these trouble times? Either for profit or for impact. Thinking about Covid19 of course (Healthcare, quarantine, wfh...) but the recession (unemployment) or future end of recession..

Hi all I’m meeting my supervisor/coworkers at a happy hour for the first time later this week after starting my first job post college completely virtual. I’m feeling pretty nervous about it since social situations/meeting new people were always hard for me even before COVID. Does anyone have any advice to help with this?
Looking to lose 10-15lbs that I had gained during covid. Going to a wedding in 2.5 months that is my main motivator. The past 2 weeks I have been doing well - tracking what I eat, buying healthier groceries and working out 5x a week. Then Easter hit and I went to my family’s lunch, and ate way too much unhealthy food. My mom sent me home with lots of food which I ended up eating most of yesterday. Didn’t workout either days. How can I stop myself from spiraling? Usually I’d give up at this point
Can anyone recommend a running app? I haven’t ran since pre-COVID since gyms have been closed. I’m desperate to start running again
Tired of being shamed by family for the precautions I’m taking to ensure my family, including 2-month-old, are not putting ourselves in any situation that may cause unnecessary risk of contracting covid. Was called selfish for not attending a bday party (ironic), was made to feel bad when I asked family (who had travelled to Florida for fun, gone out to bars/restaurants, etc.) to get tested before coming to see the newborn. Just be respectful of how others are dealing with the pandemic, please!

Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing. *Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb
