Self- Regulation in Frederick, MD.

Many people have their own ways of self-regulating. Here, I decided to go grocery shopping for my family and observed others’ actions of self-regulating. I was at the store for about 45 minutes and observed many different things. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, people have taken many different actions, especially in public. While I was in the store, I noticed different social norms. I noticed there were people wearing face masks, there was a certain line you had to stand behind in checkout, no self-serve food, and a plastic wall between the cashier and customer. This was very unusual than normal, but makes sense ini the long run by being cautious for the public. Also as I was shopping I noticed other shoppers were acting extra cautious and wouldn’t stand too close to me in the aisles. From being in the store for a long time, I felt very out of place and felt a large sense of fear from others in the store. Noticing shoppers rushing in and out of the store, seeing fear and sensing fear on their faces and body movements. It almost felt like it was silent but crowded, feeling very hectic, and different from the usual. The sense of fear felt like it was rushing into me. After observing and experiencing this, I got to see how other people use self-regulation through their own actions.
