    \\ MISSION

    To slow and control the spread of COVID-19, whilst maintaining a semblance of an active and productive life. From government legislation, all the way down to individuals – this is everyone’s fight. We have an obligation as citizens to do everything we can to contain COVID-19 whilst looking out for those around us.

    \\ PLAN

    Use a white board / email yourself / write down your plans on your phones notepad the night before. It’s so easy to lose structure entirely and let the days just waste away. Make a plan of attack the night before so you wake up ready to go. Remember – if you were commuting to work and have now started to work from home, you’ve just saved what could be a few hours a day. Use them productively, whether it be physical training, hobbies or personal projects.

     

    \\ GET UP EARLY

    Set the tone and run the day. Get dressed into your actual clothes – not pyjamas. This isn’t a month/s long slumber party – these days still count. We won’t be getting them back at the end so make them count. As Jocko says, “every second counts, so, make every second count.”

     

    \\ TIDY YOUR HOME

    Whether it be a room, house, shed, shack, caravan – spend the time to truly tidy it. Jordan Peterson talks a lot about the mental impacts of a cluttered environment – so declutter and find a greater sense of control over your environment. Who knows what you’ll find, Bag things up ready to donate once the storm passes. All those house tasks you didn’t have time to do due to priorities and travel – now is the time.

     

    \\ ADJUST YOUR SCHEDULE

    Reschedule your standard day with your new parameters and priorities. Morning workouts could be replaced with your grocery run if it means you’re going out into a less crowded world, perhaps work commitments take place at a different time. In short: your schedule is changing – adjust it to ensure you are being as productive as possible, do not use it as an excuse to take the easy road.

     

    \\ CHECK IN

    We are all fighting right now. Your text could be the act that turns someone’s day around. Your phone call makes someone feel just a bit less isolated. Your random act of kindness brings someone back from the brink. Look out for each other, in a world of physical isolation every act counts.

     

    \\ WORKOUT

    If you can go outside – get some fresh air and move. If you have a garden, shuttle runs work just as well. If you are high risk or just don’t want to leave your room, your room is now your gym. Get moving, work on the things you always neglect – whether that be mobility, stretching, burpees. Improve. Get better.

    A plan we have is directly linked:

    Also depending on your level of Fitness and equipment available we’d suggest checking the Proving Grounds, Asgard and Midgard for additional training days.

     

    \\ RETURNING HOME

    Whenever you return home from getting groceries, running, anything: It’s imperative that you wash your hands up to your elbows thoroughly, followed by your face. If you are, or are in isolation with high risk people – change your clothes when you get in, washing your outside clothes immediately to minimise risk of contamination.

     

    \\ FOOD AND SUPPLIES

    Now is not the time to revert to nightly takeaways. With a financially insecure future the additional expenditure isn’t justifiable. Your health also doesn’t give a damn that you are on lockdown – kebab is still kebab. When you go out to get your groceries, get enough for 7 to 10 days – do not hysterically panic buy. If you are in a country currently in lockdown and even if not – you want to be limiting and controlling your potential to contract or infect.

    We can go one of two routes here: neither involve take away.

    I. Meal prep to give yourselves more time in the day, just like you would if you were travelling to work – you’ll be financially better off and far more efficient with your time.
    II. Make an event of cooking with those around you. Go back to dinner together with those in isolation with you, making cooking and eating together a social occasion.

    Now more than ever, your portion size and waste matters. Leftovers are now tomorrow’s lunch. If you haven’t already adopted this mindset – hold onto it through this period and beyond. Doing the right thing only in times of crisis is not enough.

    Many adopt practises like Intermittent Fasting if they are struggling with casual snacking that can go hand in hand with being stuck at home the entire day. Limiting your eating window will vastly cut down on boredom snacking and control your calorie intake as your expenditure will very likely be lower.

     

    \\ PROJECTS

    Work on your existing hobbies and skills – or take up new ones. Writing, art, home training, yoga, painting, learning a new language, the things you can do from the confines of your own home are endless.

    Just get better. Improve and hone your skills.

    Share your skills – share your creations with the world. If you’re a performer, invite people to watch you stream a live session. If you’re into fitness – stream a workout and inspire others to get creative. We have an amazing digital infrastructure with our social media platforms to share with each other. We can use them to share our discount codes for nonsense products – or, we can use them to stay close to each other.

     

    \\ CHECK IN

    Do it again. Watch Twilight together on Netflix streaming if you have to, the movie is terrible but it’s the act that counts. Side note: Mr Pattinson will be a fantastic Batman.

    Please share this with anyone you think it may help. Stand together everyone.

    For The Pack
