If you’re like I am, a crisis can snap you into extreme focus – like a slow motion car skid can do; or it can snap you into unhealthy chaos – like, pass me another tub of ice-cream to get through this mess. But…
The hidden treasure of crisis is balled up energy for productive, creative, outward focus.Tweet
The results may vary depending on your temperament and the type of crisis. For example, I tend to rise when people need me for emotional support during crisis, and I tend to shrink if they need me to give them the Heimlich.
Personally, I’ve needed to give concentrated focus to my physical health for a long time, and for a long time, I’ve chosen to focus instead on other components of health – emotional, mental, spiritual, relational. In the future, I’d like to add these other elements of well-being as growth opportunities on this website, but for now, during quarantine,
In that spirit, I’m adding a Quarantine Weight-loss Group on Facebook as the first wellness component of Vulneratus.com. It’s a simple idea, and it really only needs 3-9 people to get started. Here’s how it comes to you:
Would you like to lose weight with me during quarantine?
You’d need to be willing to:
- Post your starting weight and long-term goal weight in a private Facebook group.
- Set a short term weight loss goal that you want to reach by April 31st.
- Weigh in every day and post that number in the private thread.
- Share a face-only pic on the group thread every Monday.
Each individual would be responsible for their own approach to eating and exercise, all theories and strategies welcome, no judgement. If you want advice you can source the group, otherwise the group will be for support, not advice.
Once the group forms, it can set a group reward for group success at the month’s end. It can also choose to disband or re-up at the end of the month. And if it gets to 10 members, I’ll close it and open another one.
