How to deal with the COVID like a Dividend Girl

Yesterday, as I saw the TSX going down into the dark 15 800 points, I was seriously worrying. But today, just like magic, the TSX went back in the happy 16 000 points, so no problem :-). Today, my non-registered portfolio closed the session at $103,045.84, my TFSA portfolio at $89,525.72 and my RRSP portfolio - stocks only - at $48,265.70.

It's really unfortunate, but these ups and downs are here to remain, as long as the COVID will remain active worldwide. Even in more normal times - I hope you remember those - the TSX remains volatile and is normally sensible to a bunch of all sorts of events. The COVID is just the extra that we didn't need.

As the second round of COVID is hitting on the world, the situation is getting worst in Quebec province. New-Brunswick-Quebec border is still closed, and I think it will remain that way for a long time. Quebeckers are not careful enough while the COVID is still around and hurting more and more people. This pandemic reveals the total lack of organization of Quebeckers, their really poor health system, as well as their poor understanding of what the COVID is all about. We are in a much better place in New Brunswick because we are smarter. We understand what the COVID is, and how it manages to make it way within all of our social activities. Even if there's currently no case of COVID in New Brunswick, the population is extra careful and wear a mask in public places.

I live in Montreal and here, people more or less wear the mask properly and just don't take this pandemic seriously. As a Canadian, it's a real shame to see how Quebeckers are handling things. When it comes to COVID, you need to be extra careful. As a really smart New Brunswick, I am here to explain how to handle this shit to the best, without panicking.

The following is a Dividend Girl guide on how to deal with the pandemic.

First, always wear a mask in public places. The more you spend time in public places, the more you expose yourself to the COVID virus. You need to reduce those expositions to the minimum needed. As soon as you step outside, you are directly exposed to the virus. Everything that you touch with your hands can wear the virus on it. While wearing a mask, leave it on your face, don't touch it, don't touch the mask, don't touch your pretty face. After touching something, make sure you use Purell or a similar product on your hands.

Only remove your mask when you are back home. While being home, remove the mask carefully. Your mask may be contaminated with the COVID, put it in a place where it won't be able to contaminate anyone. Following what, wash your hands and wash for at least 20 seconds. Following what, I like to use a similar product to Purell, even after washing my hands.

While dealing with this pandemic, you need to close down your social bubble. Work from home if you can, don't visit anyone, don't go to the restaurant, don't go to the movies, don't go to the gym. However, you can: walk outside, but stay away from people. And if someone is getting to close, move out from there.

If you have a few pounds - or more - to lose, this is a good time to lose weight as the COVID like big fat inactive bodies. Eat some meat, eat a lot of veggies, and drink water. Talk to yourself and ask your body to reject the COVID virus, to destroy it if it's in you.

And that being said, I wish you good luck because you'll need some.

FYI washing your hands with soap is better than purell. No need to purell after washing. Just dries out your skin!
