Believe it or not, people settle into patterns all the time. Before social distancing, there was likely a usual set of shops and restaurants you would frequent. Remember Taco Tuesday? Disruptions to these patterns have caused the most stress, not just to you but to your service providers. Although it would be easy to take the fox’s view and decide the grapes out of your grasp were probably too sour, remember this; businesses aren’t products, but people – and people need your help. Making time to support your local businesses is much easier than you think. You can always start small, like remembering Taco Tuesday. But the most important thing is to remember who you are helping out. Small businesses aren’t supporting stock investor interests, they’re paying for a kid’s braces, or after school tutoring, or helping to buy food for a charity, or uniforms for a girl scout troop.
