3. Are your affairs in order? Do you have a will, a plan, a structure in case something happens? You don’t want to leave your loved ones with a mess. DO IT NOW. Get a power of attorney in place so someone else can operate around what you have built whether it’s a portfolio or your family finances.
4. Connect spiritually, however that is for you. It may be a walk, nature, prayer, meditating, or reading. Whatever works, we all need to have FAITH OVER FEAR.
5. Be a source of help for others. That will take your mind off the panic button. The world needs you to be at your best.
