We’re spending a lot more time at home this week.
We’ll be getting to know each other a little differently, we’ll be eating at our kitchen tables, even if it is take-out, and we’ll be learning to work a little differently.
I think it will be interesting to see how this affects our social media, our social interactions, and how we get along with each other. Those keyboards that have been so powerful may just be a little bit less effective in some ways. And probably, a little more effective in others.
Health workers will be overworked. We will be taxing their resources, in terms of availability, wellness, and our levels of trust and anxiety.
Our politicians, who were already working overtime to get some votes this November, now have a different platform than they had previously.
Our elderly candidates, who were already compromised in some ways, are now even more at risk.
So let’s think of some thing we can do to enjoy this time that we will be spending differently.
What are some thing you enjoy doing?
Is it doing a puzzle? Reading a book? Drawing a picture?
FaceTiming your family that is not in your home? I read earlier this week that FaceTiming allows us to get our need for social stimulation met. We get our need for visual, auditory, and it feels more like a conversation than other forms.
What is something you have been putting off? Teaching your teen to drive, getting in those CEU’s for your license or degree, or something entirely different?
I hope you stay healthy as we all go through this together.
I hope you can take the advised precautions, and that you maintain a stream of income.
I hope, that you are able to see the light and see the positives in all of this chaos
