The whole world is trying to figure out what to do to emerge and recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. Each country is responding in its own way and so, on a smaller scale, is each person.
Here is what I have learned.*
keep in touch with those you love
You're going through a hard time. Guess what? So is everybody else.
Whoever you love, check up on them - even if all you can manage is phone call.
Interpersonal connections are vital to us as a species. Keep them alive.
LOOK AFTER YOURSELF
The majority of us are self-isolated but not everyone is.
When this ends (as the saying goes: this too shall pass) we may find the world just that little harder to be part of at first.
Make sure you are at the best you can be. You owe it to yourself AND to those who are working hard so the world doesn't fall apart right now - they will need support when we crawl out of our bolt-holes.
think about what you need...
When hard times like this hit, as they occasionally do, evaluating what you need is suddenly easier. When the shops are closed it is far easier to decide not to buy a thing - so did you ever need it in the first place?
...and how much?
Are you enjoying those 128 toilet rolls? 'Nuff said...
Stay safe. Be careful and caring and keep smiling!
