Thankfully today's technology makes social distancing a bit easier.
In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me, there lay, an invincible summer. And, that makes me happy. For it says, that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger. - Albert Camus
At a time when so many are feeling displaced, fragile, and worried, it helps to know we are still a community. We are all in this together, and together we will find our invincible summer.
How can we stay connected during the new normal of social distancing? How do we cope when we are learning to navigate this strange new etiquette? Social distancing does not mean emotional distancing; we can still have pleasantries; we can show concern and offer kind words. We can make eye contact and smile even when we must stay several feet apart. If you're going to spread anything, spread compassion, kindness, and humor.
Health experts agree that we need social interaction, and not seeing people face to face can lead to depression, one of the risks of self-isolation and quarantine. So please stay connected to one another. Reach out to your friends and family, especially senior members who may be most at risk. Go back to the basics, write letters, or make phone calls. Connect through Facetime whenever possible and help to facilitate connection for seniors who may not have the technological savvy.
It's too easy to enter a kind of hypnotic state glued to phone and television. Indeed, check for updates from reliable sources and then clear your energy. Go for a walk outside, do some yoga, practice deep breathing exercises to relax.
Thanks for reading, I'm so glad we're on this journey together. We'll get through this with love and compassion.
