What I Think People are Thinking About
I don’t remember seeing so many people walking, jogging, and biking in our town. I love seeing this. My wife and I own the only CrossFit gym in Clinton. We do so because we value fitness and want our community to be happy and healthy. There are several possible and probable explanations for the increased activity.
First, I’m sure people are bored. For now, we are not having to rush kids to baseball, gymnastics, or scout meetings. We aren’t at brick and mortar offices until late at night doing our normal work. So why not go for a walk?
Second, because this virus seems to be really rough on those who are older, not fit, and have underlying health issues, I think people are trying to get healthy for longevity. We want to be able to enjoy our kids and grandkids as long as possible. We have lots we want to accomplish in life, so we want to live and thrive longer. Nothing wrong with that.
Third, maybe people are going a little stir crazy being at home so much. Just getting out in the fresh air and walking can help. Along these mental lines, those of us who have reached the stage in life when we are counting our days as opposed to counting our age are also thinking about what happens to our families when we pass on.
If the latter is weighing on you, talk to an attorney and get your will and health care wishes on paper. It is not difficult to get this done and we don’t have to meet in person during the pandemic. Do it now before our lives get crazy again. What is holding you back? At Rundlett Law Firm, our team strives to make the process as frictionless as possible. Let me know if you have any questions.
