“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
(Franklin Delano Roosevelt)

A scary movie has descended upon us. Things have gotten weird.  

Franklin D. Roosevelt once told us “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Entrenched in a war against an enemy we cannot see, we must heed his words. 

That’s the vibe around here at Happy Living at least. We take our lead from the top, from our founder, Matt Gersper. And he’s got a message: 

In this time of uncertainty, we should not worry or get overrun with anxiety. We must P-A-N-I-C.






And his message of how to achieve physical, mental, spiritual, and financial Happy amid social distancing and a tough-but-opportunity-filled economy is catching on. 

Listen to Matt on the Onward Podcast with Emily Harman, the Science and Soul of Healing Summit with Heather Paulson, and on Facebook Live with JR Burgess. 

You just may feel a bit better about things after you do. 

For more calm in the midst of this storm, give Matt a ring at 214.906.6151 or drop him a line at Matt@HappyLiving.com. He’s Mr. Happy Living, this is what he does. (And he’s home a lot these days.)   

Let’s see how we can get through this together. 

The world is strong and Happy is good. This too shall pass. 

As Matt says, “Now is not the time for worry, it’s time to P-A-N-I-C.”


Crossing streets is currently way more deadly than Covid 19.

80% of cases are mild to moderate, most recover without complications.

This is an unprecedented opportunity to help and support our neighbors.


Don’t resist. Fully accept this crisis as a temporary situation.

Stay at home as much as possible.

Stay healthy. Eat well. Sleep plenty. Exercise regularly. Be kind. Have fun.


Do something, anything, to create your own little piece of paradise at home in the midst of the crisis out there.


Invest in your nest.

Use dollar cost averaging to continue investing in your retirement portfolio.

Invest in your health with immune system boosting practices and supplements.


If you have a weak immune system you may be more likely to catch an infection.

When you feel anxious and stressed for a long time, your body never gets the signal to return to normal functioning. This can weaken your immune system, leaving you more vulnerable to viral infections and frequent illnesses.
