No matter where you’ve been held up for the last few crazy years, you can’t hide from the fucked up fact that a massive recession is knocking on our door.
And for self-care’s sake, it’s time to put a few action steps together so you can still take care of yourself properly and put yourself first in all the ways!
While a recession is synonymous with money (or lack of it for that matter), there are more than a few explanations for how a recession could get started. Here’s a quick (non-exhaustive) checklist just so you can wrap your head around it… Recessions can start due to:
√ disruptions in the supply chain like oil, food, and even essential supplies (remember that yeast shortage of 2020)
√ any type of war (like the one currently happening to Ukraine)
√ elevated inflation (inflation isn’t bad – but excessive inflation can be dangerous, especially out-of-control inflation)
√ a spike in interest rates
√ times of sudden economic shock (like during a pandemic)
Looks like we may be able to check off a few of those scenarios. So now what (the fuck)??

So let’s just not mess with this recession and put some selfcare first so that we can come out swinging k?
