AerieReal Summit Sells Out Despite Coronavirus Fears

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Fears of the coronavirus didn’t stop Aerie from celebrating the ladies. 
More than 300 people — including Aerie fans, executives, friends of the brand like author Katherine Schwarzenegger and model Hunter McGrady, and 12 of the 13 AerieReal role models — flocked to New York City’s Dumbo neighborhood for the sold-out AerieReal Summit, the intimate brand’s first, on International Women’s Day on Sunday. 
But instead of high-fives and hugs, attendees exchanged air-kisses and elbow bumps. That’s because only a day earlier, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency thanks to an increase of confirmed coronavirus cases in the state. 
Still, attendance was “beyond expectations,” Stacey McCormick, senior vice president of Aerie marketing, told WWD. “We didn’t know with all this media happening right now with the coronavirus; we weren’t sure if people would show. But everyone’s here and we’re excited.”
The all-day event was held at the upscale 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge and included panel discussions on things like sustainability, love and success and Schwarzenegger talking about forgiveness in honor of her new book, also about forgiveness. Attendees sipped on green juice smoothies, potted do-it-yourself air plants and took turns talking to the role models in the “Real

SXSW Canceled Over Coronavirus Fears by City of Austin

South by Southwest is officially canceled after much speculation over fears of coronavirus.
The annual music festival-turned tech and media event released a statement Friday afternoon saying the city of Austin, Tex., where the event is held, decided to cancel SXSW, scheduled to begin next weekend. This is the first time in 34 years of the event that it will not take place, organizers said, and it appears to be the first instance of a U.S. city intervening to cancel a large event. SXSW draws more than 150,000 people to Austin for a weekend of performances, panels and branded events. 
“We are devastated to share this news with you,” the statement reads. “’The show must go on’ is in our DNA.…We are now working through the ramifications of this unprecedented situation.”
The so-called “unprecedented situation” is the feared spread and effects of COVID-19, better known as coronavirus, a flu-like virus that has gripped public consciousness in the last several weeks as it spread from an epicenter in China to most continents and roughly 100,000 confirmed cases of the disease.
SXSW is just the latest event to be canceled over the virus, but organizers noted that, “as recently as Wednesday, Austin Public Health stated that ‘there’s

Shoptalk March Conference Canceled Due to Coronavirus Fears

Shoptalk is the latest conference to succumb to fears over the spread of the coronavirus.
Leaders of the annual retail and e-commerce event, set to be held later this month in Las Vegas, have decided to reschedule the conference to mid-September. Just this week, representatives of the conference had held firm that the four-day event would go on as planned, simply without attendees from certain countries, including China and Iran, where the COVID-19 virus, better known as the coronavirus, has been widespread.
“The guidance of various health and safety organizations and our commitment to ensuring the well-being of our community necessitated the shift,” an event spokeswoman said. “We considered input from many of our sponsors, attendees and speakers, as well as the impact of widespread corporate travel restrictions during March across the retail industry.”
The World Health Organization has yet to declare Coronavirus a global pandemic, but did declare it an emergency. The virus is a respiratory illness and is described by WHO as generally “mild” and only one in five of those affected are thought to be in need of hospital care, typically the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. Although 3,200 people worldwide are thought to have died from the

How to Let Go of Your Fears in Five Steps

Why is it so difficult to let go of our fears? How much easier life would be if we dared to go ahead and we would not worry about everything. You should let go of your fears, not stick to them. It is difficult to know what belongs to you, as you often do not even realize that you have adopted something, and at the same time you consider things as your reality which have nothing to do with reality. Notice what does not belong to you, that is holding you back and eliminate it from your life; do not let it slow you down. The following tasks help me each and every time I would like to conquer my fears.


1. Write down your fears

If you have the courage to write them down, you are halfway there. Lot of fears are eating us from the inside, and we are so used to them that we don’t even realize they exist. They are hidden in our words and in our beliefs. We have made them part of our lives, but remember: you shouldn’t stick to your fears, you should let them go.

2. Go into details

Write down the main areas of your life and make lists of your blockages. This task will help you dig even deeper into your fears. I know, you still say that this task is not for you, but if you follow the five steps, you will soon realize it is only your ego tricking you. From your job to you career and to your relationships, take a look at the things that might hold you back. Think of the reasons why you are not taking certain steps.

Don’t forget:
your circumstances keep changing all the time, don’t camp in the past. Just because something could not happen last year, it might happen this year.

3. Analyze

Now that you have a list of your fears, deal with them one by one. Why are you afraid of it? Because if you don’t succeed, it’s a failure? Why are you afraid of failure? What kind of image do you have of failure? How were you treated in the past when you failed?

The attitude and the experience you associate with the specific events are important. If in your case it is negative, you only have to change that. The following stories will help you with that.

I know people who have been competing a lot since they were kids, and when they didn’t win, their parents praised them anyhow and told them that it was also a part of the journey. If you want to be very good, you have to make a lot of mistakes; it is only the cowards that don’t try. It is a myth that you are good only if you do everything perfectly. I think it works this way: you accept that you make mistakes, but you learn, because you WANT to grow.

The second story: a boy told me once that when he accidentally broke a glass as a child, his mother would start to scream her lungs out and say “how clumsy you are, son!” All through his childhood, this boy convinced himself that he is clumsy, because his mother said so, and he has been afraid he might break a glass ever since. Is it a realistic fear? No. Nevertheless, he hates eating out, since he is afraid it will happen again. I asked him to talk about this with his mother. It turned out that her mother simply got a heart attack every time, because when she was a child a wall collapsed behind her back, and since then if anything breaks around her, her reaction is like that. It also turned out that she was also worried that her son might get hurt.
You see how much depends on whether you communicate with others in a clear way? But for this, you need to know your fears and to know how the events of your past influence the present.

4. Change your viewpoint

Face them! Now that you have elaborated on the exact causes of your fears, think about it: is it a realistic fear? What will happen if you fail? Nothing – but if you don’t even try, you will think about it for the rest of your life, WHAT IF? I wouldn’t wish this kind of life on anyone. Once your attitude is changed, here comes the next step: you should face your fear.

E.g. “I’m afraid I won’t be enough.”
– Why do you think so?
E.g. “My mother always told me no-one would want me,” “My ex-partner told me I would never find anyone better than him,” etc.
– Is my fear real? What do I think?

Write down your opinion honestly, why you think you are not enough. If you always write “I’m unlucky in this”, “every man is an asshole”, “I’ll be fooled again, no matter what” and the like, than look a bit further: what happens if you don’t succeed the first or second time? Nothing. Is every man really an asshole? Surely not. If you know only one who isn’t, you should hope that there are more. This can’t be your attitude, since you will get what is in your head. And finally: why would you be fooled again? Just because you failed an exam once, you won’t fail again. Just because you got lost in a city once, you won’t necessarily get lost again. Think about it. We always learn and grow.

Why isn’t your attitude like this: the more times you are fooled and the more negative experience you have, the easier it will be in the long run to see who can stay and who should go. After a while you will be able to spot the people you have nothing to do with you in no time, and you will be able to save many weeks, months, years and great disappointments. Let things happen the way they are supposed to happen, and don’t rule out the possibility that something might turn out good at the end of the day. I know it is difficult to believe that you deserve good things, but it is worth a try.


5. Always have a plan B

A Plan B will calm you down. It will take the pressure off of you, and FINALLY you can relax. What if, for example, you never find Mr. Right or you don’t have anyone for years? That isn’t a tragedy either. I get plenty of letters from readers saying they are alone, and don’t even have the chance to get to know people, but they would like to be with someone. What if you get to know and love yourself first? What if you discover and polish your skills? If you end up alone, make use of the valuable time you have received – let me add, not by coincidence. At times like this you can move on faster than when you have someone on your side. Shape your attitude, one without desperation. Accept the situation you are in and make the most of it. From the very moment you accept what you have and you decide that, not everyone has to live according to the expectations of society after all, you will be free from desperation and fear. This is called letting go. This is about “I’ve done everything I could and I accept what I have and won’t fight it anymore. It will happen when it happens, and until then I ‘m enjoying life.” Opportunities are stifled by clinging, but if you are open minded and receptive, miracles will come… and we have all heard stories like “it happened exactly when I had given up hope.” Well, something like this happens before that.

Combat Four of the Most Common Fears

Having just closed the chapter on Halloween this week, this is an opportune time to find our inner courage and kick some of our fears to the curb. Fear is a completely natural and healthy emotion to have. However, it’s good to be able to reflect and distinguish between fearing things that we can manage vs. those we can’t control. It’s easy to misguide excitement, anxiety and anticipation into the scary realm of fear, but with these simple suggestions and a fresh dose of perspective hopefully you can combat these four common fears!


It’s fine to celebrate success, but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure. — Bill Gates

We never know what the future might hold, and for many that thought can be a scary one, constantly causing us to ask ourselves if we are going in the right direction, if our paths will lead us to success or stability. Maybe we’ve been taught that failure is a result of laziness or the product of making a wrong turn. Maybe we see failure as a signifier that we aren’t good enough to succeed. But this isn’t true at all! Failure often means that we are headed in the right direction. If we don’t fail we will never see success. Think of how you learned to walk. We never say babies “fail” when they fall. We accept that falling is a part of the process and that they will ultimately stand up and try again. The same holds true for life. Failure gives us the crucial lessons we need to find in order to stand stronger and find new avenues for success.

2. Health

But the real secret to lifelong good health is actually the opposite: Let your body take care of you. — Deepak Chopra

While some of you may be thinking that it’s pretty ironic for a fitness instructor to encourage you NOT to worry about your health, let me start off by saying that health is something to tend to, support and nurture, not fear. Listening to your body is the first step to living a healthy and balanced life. Don’t let your fear of things you can’t control physically consume you. Instead, focus on what your body is telling you. Eat, engage in daily physical fitness and keep your body rested and hydrated. Your body truly is a temple, and when you treat it as such you may be able to dispel the fears you have of it failing or turning its back on you. In the unexpected nature of life we often can’t control getting sick, genetics or not feeling our best, but that doesn’t mean we should let the fear of what may come consume us. Breathe, listen to and enjoy your body!

3. Aging

Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength. — Betty Friedan

Aging isn’t easy, especially when we watch the people we love go through it. We fear the unknown and the uncertainty of the future. But what if we began to see the cloudiness of our futures as exciting as opposed to fear invoking? What if the future was something we refused to allow being anything but great? A little bit of faith goes a long way. If we begin to make the future seem like a grand adventure, or encourage ourselves to see it as nothing but fulfilling, it will be. Every age has it’s own energy to it; lets have fun in our 20s but enjoy the understanding and focus of our 30s and 40s. Let’s relish the expanding families we may see in our 50s and the wisdom we’ve garnered in our 60s and 70s. There is poetry to each age and each has its own voice. So let’s wipe those future fears clean and replace them with curiosity about what we will learn, master and draw peace from at every stage of our lives.

4. Risk

The risk of a wrong decision is preferable to the terror of indecision. — Maimonides

We all take risks in life, if we don’t, we may never have the experiences that life is all about: love, relationships, new jobs, education, our own physical limits, joy, bliss and understanding. Risk, whether it is asking someone out on a date or skydiving, can fill us with those unmistakable tiny butterflies inside our stomachs. However, while those butterflies feel uncomfortable they are, in fact, innocuous. Taking risks in life, as long as they aren’t dangerous or harmful to others, can make us scared but the end result can make us better. So take a risk and feel those butterflies! They can help you do what you’ve always dreamed but never tried. By making the butterflies your supportive friends, I promise you’ll enjoy the result.

Our fears can be a powerful and valid force in understanding both the world and ourselves. By delving deeper into distinguishing what is fear and what can be re-routed into other emotions, you can begin to discover a healthier and more fearless life.
