Do what you can for other
One challenge of what we are going through is that we don’t have much control. However, I encourage you to ask yourself what you can do to help.
This is a hard time for us all. While we are all going through this together, we are each having our own unique experiences and struggles. If after first doing everything we can to ensure that we and our families are safe and protected, perhaps we can view this as an opportunity to step back, reflect, and intentionally connect with the people and values that are most important to us. Maybe that means reaching out to others, or perhaps that even means taking time for yourself. Whatever you need, have the confidence to do exactly that.And if you ever need some help of your own, please reach out. We all could use it, and we all have someone, even a stranger, who would be happy to give it. Remember that it is physical distancing that is necessary, not social distancing.
I hope these strategies serve you well. Have fun trying them out and finding what works for you and please share your own brilliant ideas with us and others.
May we all stay connected and stronger together.
