In 2002, Morgan Spurlock ate his three daily meals at McDonalds because he wanted to prove their food was bad for you. Here’s what happened.

He gained 30 pounds. His liver was about to go into toxic shock. His doctors told him he could suffer permanent damage — so he stopped on day 30. Not surprisingly, his health returned quickly.

Here in COVID World, there are plenty of things in your mind that are bad for you. Feeling irritable leads you to making your relationships worse, being isolated is like a bruise that won’t heal, and feelings of floating uncertainty sap your energy. This isn’t your fault, it’s just what is.

It doesn’t have to stay this way. COVIDcare is a series of five articles (the first one is here). Each of them gives you something you can do to combat the things that are bad for you. None of them are hard. All of them are doable. Each one will help.

These articles may not be for you. It’s okay to do something else with your day. But if you take just a few minutes to try something new, you will be rewarded. I’ll leave you with a quote from the fantastic Jim Rohn:

“If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary”
