Are We Overreacting to…Everything?

A question on a Facebook page asking “Covid-19” is the world overreacting?  Discuss Below.”  And boy oh boy, there were thoughts, discussion, opinion, and reactions.  So of course, I jumped in to “discuss.” 

"Are we overreacting?  No.  We are all reacting exactly how we were conditioned to react for 20, 30, 60 years.  We can’t do anything but react.”   – Mark J. Silverman


Today on Mastering Midlife:

  • We have spent a lifetime developing our “reactions.”
  • We have opinions on everything, politics, religion, facemasks. It makes us…us.
  • What do our reactions to Covid-19 and BLM have in common with our to-do list in Only 10s?
  • What does it take to NOT react?
  • How do we get to a thoughtful response?
