Internet highlights – w/c 15th March 2020

21 03 2020

It’s a long and weird week, there’s been a lot of time on the internet and a lot of stuff on the internet, so sorry if this is a bit long! Obviously there’s a lot linked to Coronavirus, but I’ve tried to make sure the majority is humorous, or good advice, rather than miserable or stressful, though the occasional may have slipped in, sorry. Now you see why I do this consolidating in one place, rather than sharing and retweeting all this as the week goes!


Tips for working from home.

Call to day of prayer and action on Sunday 22nd.

Swipe along ➡️➡️ ▫️ If you’re still hoarding more food and supplies than you need, please, please stop. Please think of others – especially the most vulnerable, and those risking their health to look after us. Leave enough for everyone. We depend on each other. ▫️ If your cupboards are full, here’s an idea – take a few items to your local food bank, or ask if your neighbours need something. Find your local food bank on the @trusselltrust website. ▫️ And to put it a bit more strongly for followers of Jesus – there is no Christian justification for hoarding more than you need. As John the Baptist said in the Gospel of Luke, “Whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none; and whoever has food must do likewise.” #coronavirus #hoarding #loveyourneighbor

When you get on the anxiety roundabout your body’s sympathetic nervous system escalates…. adrenaline and cortisol are released to get your body ready to run, hide or fight. This sets off a huge range of physiological sensations… tightened muscles, rapid breathing, shaky extremities, sweaty skin, redness rising, stomachs emptying, bowels constricting, burning energy, blood flowing to your limbs. It doesn’t feel nice, but it’s just physiology… it’s your body using too much energy and directing this energy in an, possibly misguided, attempt to be helpful. What you do at this point can push you further along anxiety roundabout, or it can help you find a route off. To get off the anxiety roundabout you need to find ways to deescalate the arousing sympathetic body system and try to engage the parasympathetic system instead, which helps calm things down. It’s about doing something that changes your physiology…. exercise is great for this as it uses up that extra energy and automatically triggers different chemicals that helps calm your body down, but there are lots of different ways to do this too. Usually these involve a shift in what you are doing, moving, shifting your attention or doing something to calm your body. What works for you will be unique to you… these are the ways you told me you got of the anxiety roundabout and some of the most common ways people find they can de-escalate their sympathetic nervous systems and ramp their rest and digest, parasympathetic, system up to help change the physiological reactions that are creating anxiety. These are anxious times: we can’t stop being anxious (it’s human) and we need to recognise how we are feelings (and not shame ourselves for this). But we can also do lots of things to respond helpfully to our anxiety and find routes off the anxiety roundabout instead of circling further and further around it. I hope some of these help you.

No, you’re crying 😭😭😭 Almost 200 people in years 4, 5 and 6 at Silver Springs Primary Academy sang songs from their school grounds so that the elderly residents living in Kendal House sheltered housing could watch them and listen. “Heartwarming status alert 🚨 Esme’s school is opposite an old people’s home and the residence are isolating. The children put a sign up so the residence knew what time to come to their windows…….and they all sang them songs to keep their spirits up, Yes I cried, it was so emotional… the oldies were at their windows waving and dancing. Well done to the kids of silver springs.Yet again going absolutely above and beyond the help others. I’m so happy Esme was a part of this ❤️ https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/children-sing-elderly-residents-coronavirus-17949795” Via Ashley James Patterson on Facebook
