Emotional Eating in Quarantined Kids

“Do kids eat in response to stress? Some kids do. When we do think they’re eating more because of the pandemic, is it because they’re emotionally distraught, or anxiety, depression — or that they’re bored? Those are the questions people ask." Dr. Julie Lumeng, University of Michigan.

She explains:

“If you think your child is emotionally overeating, you would like to help the child manage their emotions better, help children understand this pandemic, manage their fear, manage their anger over what they’ve lost.” http://ow.ly/vhns50zSVa3

Boredom and stress are two big contributors to emotional eating, and children have a lot of both right now.

Your next car could be virus-proof. Here's how.

“Safety is definitely top of mind for car shoppers. Not only are they expecting sanitization & social distancing protocols in place at the dealerships, they also want features in their cars to protect them such as air quality/purifier options." Vanessa Ton, Cox Automotive

In a recent survey, 80% of customers in the U.S., China, Japan, Germany and Italy said they’d pay for systems to disinfect their vehicles.

‘Wuhan Diary’ Offers an Angry and Eerie View From Inside Quarantine

From NY Times: “Fang Fang captures the shock and panic at the start of the quarantine, people in Wuhan had been told that the Coronavirus was ‘not contagious between people,’ that it was easily containable & that they shouldn’t worry. The truth hit hard.”

Book reviewer Dwight Garner also writes this about the author: “She told uncomfortable truths about China’s fumbling response to the outbreak of the Corona Virus. Censors regularly squelched her. Chinese nationalists mounted a trolling campaign against her claiming she was besmirching Wuhan’s rosy-cheeked image.”
http://ow.ly/KTi750zQNXd

Fang Fang’s online diary, now a book, made her a nuisance to the powers that be and a national hero to many others in China.

When Can I See My Grandkids?

“Parents can explain the need to keep grandparents from getting sick by keeping their body to themselves, staying behind a particular landmark like a sidewalk or set of chairs, and keeping a mask on their faces since germs come from there. Young kids generally understand the idea of something bad happening and trying to do good instead.” Dr. Neha Chaudhary, a child and adolescent psychiatrist at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital http://ow.ly/EUBl50zSWcw

The pandemic has separated many grandparents from their grandchildren. Here’s advice for safely reuniting your family’s oldest and youngest generations.

How to Know Which Risks Are Right for You When Reopening Your Life

From WSJ: “To make smart decisions in this new world of risk, we need to figure out what type of life we want going forward, what safety trade-offs we are willing to make, and where we want to sit on the risk continuum from extremely cautious to reckless.”

Well worth reading and discussing with the people who matter to you.

You’re Getting Used to Masks. Will You Wear a Face Shield?

“The nice thing about face shields is that they can be resterilized and cleaned by the user, so they’re reusable indefinitely until some component breaks or cracks.” Dr. Sherry Yu suggests decontaminating with an alcohol wipe. http://ow.ly/34PQ50zSUsU

The clear plastic guards may be easier to wear, disinfect and reuse than cloth or surgical face coverings, although they don’t entirely replace the need for masks.

More People Are Taking Drugs for Anxiety and Insomnia, and Doctors Are Worried

Dr. Beth Salcedo, Washington D.C. psychiatrist: “If you have a boat load of xanax, and you are slightly anxious, and you take one, you feel better. Next time you are anxious, instead of taking care of what is making you anxious, you’re more likely to reach for the Xanax. It can very quickly become a habit.”

She suggests “Exercising, eating well, avoiding alcohol, and making sure we surround ourselves with our social support as much as possible” as an antidote for anxiety

As coronavirus health concerns, social isolation and job-loss stress take a toll, people turn to medications; “It can very quickly become a habit.”

Johnson & Johnson to End Talc-Based Baby Powder Sales in North America

From NY Times: “Asbestos contamination can occur when talc is mined, because both minerals can be intermingled underground, and internal memos and reports unearthed during litigation revealed that the company had been concerned for at least 50 years about the possibility of traces of asbestos in its talc. Asbestos was first linked to ovarian cancer in 1958.” http://ow.ly/acRZ50zQMYl

The company has faced thousands of lawsuits from cancer patients who claim that its talc was contaminated with asbestos, a known carcinogen, and that the company knew of the risks.

COVID-19 scams target bank accounts, stimulus checks, puppies

"Don't jump without thinking twice at social media postings or online ads that have cute pictures of puppies for sale. The dog might not even be real, and you could be out $1,000 or more." That’s what Susan Tompor writes.

She quotes this Better Business Bureau warning:

"The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has given scammers the idea to ask for money upfront, or to make excuses as to why buyers can’t see the pet in person -- before heartbroken, would-be pet owners figure out they have been conned."

Can I Get Coronavirus From Riding an Elevator?

“But even if you’re the elevator alone, there are other ways you might catch the coronavirus, although the risk is low. Elevator buttons and side rails are a potential risk if your hands become contaminated and you touch your face." Tara Parker Pope http://ow.ly/nhGS50zN3jD

When infected people use elevators, they probably do leave some of their germs behind. Wear a mask and wash hands to lower your risk.

How to Reduce Your Risk of PTSD in a Post-Covid-19 World

“When my patients ask me whether things will get better for them, I tell them that trusting they will recover increases their chances of doing so. I also remind them of how they’ve successfully coped with challenges in the past. Indeed, expecting the worst predicts a heightened risk of PTSD. And my clients often realize that they cope with challenges better than they had imagined they would." That's what clinical psychologist Jenny Taitz writes in NY Times.

She goes on to say:

“While it’s normal to get hijacked by bad news, consider adding positive activities to your routine to offset the pain. Do something you’d normally do if you were feeling optimistic. Engrossing yourself in something you enjoy and practicing gratitude is proven to increase well-being and resilience.”

It’s normal to feel a sense of hopelessness and loneliness in these times. But there are proven and proactive ways for you to get through it.

Goodbye handshake: How do we replace the ancient greeting if coronavirus keeps us from touching?

“People talk about elbow bumps and things like that. At this point, they’re not similar. They don’t convey the same message and warmth and intimacy that would be conveyed by a handshake.” Prof. Dustin York, communication expert, Maryville University http://ow.ly/2d9u50zN2jH

With COVID-19 making touch a potentially lethal act, handshaking is risky. How do we replace a greeting so key to connecting in business and life?

From NY Post: “Hard-hit countries like the US and Italy have high obesity rates...Countries like Japan and Korea, which have had less dire experiences with coronavirus, have obesity rates of under 5 percent, according to the figures.” http://ow.ly/O2tm50zKP1y

The data, published by the Center for Disease Control, showed that in March, about 90 percent of hospitalized patients across 14 states had at least one underlying health condition.

Auto makers have invested heavily in ride-hailing and car-sharing ventures, seeing them as potentially key to the industry’s future. But for now, consumers’ health concerns are helping to support car makers’ core business.

Each time coronavirus takes another World War II veteran, 'we lose a part of history'

“The tragedy of COVID-19 speeding up our loss of these great people is that when they go, we lose a part of history. What they went through in their lives is unimaginable to us today. Living through the Great Depression for one, and then going to war. The value of having them around is that they are inspirational. They are the true children of democracy.” Keith Huxen, senior director of research and history at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans.

He goes on to say:

“But what you really take away from these guys is they always say they fought for the same thing, their buddies. It was personal to them. And in some ways, we can relate to that now. We make sacrifices so that others around us don’t get sick.”

Coronavirus is taking many of The Greatest Generation, depriving these World War II vets of proper funerals and the nation of its legacy.
