The Corona virus and it’s associated language and terminology is on the tip of almost everyone’s tongue. Let’s take ‘Social distancing’ for example, everyone has by now heard of it.
But some people continue to go about their daily business without a care in the world (literally), in close proximity of others and are clearly flouting social distancing recommendations.
Since we do not live in a police state, we all need to take responsibility for not spreading this virus. Because whether you get unwell or not, the person next to you may result in losing someone they love because you didn’t stay home!
Lets show compassion and feel empathy to all. This is a great time to refine our emotional intelligence.
Social distancing definitely does not mean emotional distancing.
Do pick up a phone, call, text, FaceTime or email to checkin with your family, friend and colleagues. In times of uncertainty, we can raise to the challenges and evolve together for the betterment of our world.
No one knows where we will be tomorrow or in the coming weeks. Perhaps the legacy of the virus that changed the world is that going forward, we exhibit an abundance of gratitude and appreciation for the people and things that we have in our fleeting lives.
Let’s hope so.
