As we reflect today with the world essentially closed, we want to reflect on the many things we are grateful for during these unprecedented times in modern history. First and foremost, we want to thank you for entrusting us with helping protect your financial future. We want to remind everyone that we are in extreme defensive position with very minimal participation in any future pullbacks in the markets since the world markets have moved down over 30% and we believe the downward pressure isn’t off yet.
We will most likely see unprecedented help from the worlds governments to help society recover from the many impacts of closing the world down. We know that it can feel like this will never end. We believe that things will get back to normal as the infection numbers start to decline. The emotional impact may take a little longer to get life as we knew it back.
We are blessed for you to be in our lives. We are finding this time is a great way to connect and form deeper relationships with our family and friends.
Here are a few tips to help get through the current “stay at home” orders. It comes in the Acronym of PRAY. All of this is to create a healthy environment both physically, emotionally and spiritly.
Prune the negative voices out. The media has a way of creating hysteria with the information they are reporting. Look for and seek out stories of the good human actions.
Read positive messages and books with enduring wisdom.
Action – take purposeful action to protect yourself and help others through this. Keep a daily routine, continue to exercise and eat a balanced diet.
Yodel because you can, also we had a hard time with a word starting with Y. Turn off the TV and play some music. Sing along and dance in your living room.
