To Our Readers During covid-19

Published by Rebecca Baron on

What Can I Say?

Hello this is Rebecca, the founder of the Carrot Campaign.

I write to you because I admit the last two weeks I’ve felt mentally paralyzed over the current pandemic we are now faced with. I find myself wanting to stay in the loop about COVID-19 but also wanting and very much needing to take breaks from all the newscasts and the constant flow of social media updates. I’m sure all of you have felt the same.

Mentally paralyzed as I find myself logging into the dashboard of this website, thinking “What should I write? How can I help? What tone to do I set moving forward?”


Having so much free time now with less work and staying at home to flatten the curve, I would think I’d be flowing with ideas and energy to write every day! By staying home we are doing a great service to our healthcare workers on the frontline. Like many of you, I’m sure you’ve heard the inspirational posts how it’s a great time to take up a new hobby, learn an instrument, finally start that spring cleaning; how famous people in history accomplished this or that during times of quarantine.

Yet many of us are stricken with fear and uncertainty. I am here with you on that. Procrastination is often a form of anxiety. I have found there is not enough coffee to give me a jolt of energy that a few weeks ago I could have harnessed all on my own. I have started several drafts but unable to complete any to publish.

I also look around and have also seen people trying to capitalize on this pandemic. Changing their posts to fit the current markets for their own gain, further propagating the fear and worry. I sit back watching, not wanting any part of that. I do not want to do that, nor do I want to carry on like nothing is going on either. So I’ve found myself in sort of limbo, like I’m sure many of you readers have too.

This post may not be of any benefit to you, but by being honest with my current state I have found myself able to write more fluidly than I have in the last few weeks. If I can be authentic, then I can be productive.

Going Forward

Going forward, I’ve decided to only post content that is inspiring and beneficial without drawing attention to the political and physical climate. Not brushing the severity under the rug, but to be a useful source for people or a refreshing alternative to the siege of click-bait articles.

I hope everyone takes pre-cautions such as washing their hands, practicing social distancing and sanitizing surfaces like doorknobs, the bottom of shoes and other items you come into contact with outside of the home.

I hope you do go outside (at a safe distance) to get some sunshine, exercise, and fresh air. That you try to find to meditate or quiet time to focus on what the world you want to be after all this calms down, instead of feeding energy to the current matter at hand. And that you use this time to reconnect with loved ones (via phone or videochat, other non-physical methods) or reconnect with hobbies or interests, your favorite books. Most importantly, I hope you continue to stay hopeful and calm during these times. Do what you can to keep stress at bay, although absurd that may sound to some. Do it for yourself!

Despite all we have facing us, it’s beautiful to see all the charity, collaboration, and connectedness this challenge has brought to the world. The humbleness that the Earth has shown our great societies, that we are not all-powerful and invincible. That we are not just people by class, country or race, we are just the human race. Going forward, this will be my one and only post about COVID-19.

Like Mr. Roger’s mother would say “Look for the helpers, the ones who are helping.” I will do my part to be a helper too.

For the love of food & all that’s good

I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s
both equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
The issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently
about. Now i’m very happy I came across this during my search for something concerning this.
