COVID- What have you learnt from the past two years?
Healthy Options | COVID- What have you learnt from the past two years? It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster these past two years for everyone, however it looks like we are coming out of the forest, although according to the latest news reports, Boris and his cohorts came out the “woods” a long time ago boozing it up with their office parties, or “business meetings”. How do they get away with it; seriously!
However, that political view aside, what is the main thing you have taken from the pandemic?… Is it “Don’t hoard the toilet rolls!”, or “I should invest my life savings in pharmaceutical companies, a very large and increasing market”?
Or are you thinking more positively and saying; “I need to focus and prioritise my personal health and well-being, as without my health, I have nothing.” If you are not thinking this way, then WHY NOT?
I am amazed by the amount of people’s own physical health and well being is the last thing they look after, as you are absolutely no use to anyone if you are not healthy; If you can’t help yourself, how can you support others?.. What quality of life can you expect to have in the last 10 years of your time on this planet ?.
We just don’t think
The hypocrisy on show on the streets during COVID was staggering, I have tons of examples, but here’s just one to make the point. Did you ever see someone with a face mask hanging off one ear, or under their chin, smoking a fag? … Would they say, “I’m ok to die a horrible and lingering death with lung cancer, but I don’t want COVID!”. This example is a great illustration of what is wrong with today’s society. We just don’t think about the consequences of our future selves, just today’s fix.
Not just MEAT
We need to do something about it, and so healthy lifestyles and eating habits will I believe become more and prevalent now, and my fellow butchers should think about really focusing on supplying tailored healthy options and meal ideas promoting meals that push the health benefits of eating meat, being creative like Hello-Fresh, the online meal provider. They have tailored meal ideas, already individually portioned, saving on food waste.
So never mind New Year resolutions, make small changes NOW, think of all the things you are doing that are not serving you and your customers, and change them. Your body and mind need to last you a lifetime, so look after them. ?
