Doing what we canHand washing, disinfecting,and social distancing are the new norm!?
Oh boy is this a challenging time for families, small businesses and the whole world really.
It's in times of struggle and challenge we as humans find our strength and compassion. As we watch the news coverage of the corona virus we see the statistics, closings, and the mad rush at the grocery stores. All of this can make even the most grounded and stable person feel anxious.
This is also the time that staying positive and looking for ways to help others and ourselves is essential. I think we could agree that is not the easiest thing to do.
Are you thinking of multiple scenarios in every household, like I am? So many questions, thoughts, and concerns...
How is your family handling being home? Are you secretly happy to have everyone home? (I'd be interested to hear the answer after week 1 and beyond)
Do you have plans to work on household projects, you never have time for?
Will everyone be able to be on the internet at the same time, phone calls, etc...
What about the people who don't have access to internet ?? How can I help them?
Will the stores get restocked by the time we run out of things?
Too many to name, and each day we are presented with new information, prompting more questions.
Here are a few ways we are staying positive:
1. Looking for the stories about people who are finding ways to help others
2. Planning events for when the crisis is over (it will be over, right?!)
3. De-stressing with creativity crafting/ painting/cooking/ baking...
5. Thoughtful conversations with family members
