Staying Connected During This Time of Social Distancing



Staying Connected During This Time of Social Distancing – 094


In Episode 94, we offer some tips to stay connected during this time of social distancing. Social distancing doesn’t mean you need to distance yourself from people emotionally. In fact, connecting with others is more important now than ever because we are all going through these strange times together and trying to navigate this new normal.

You are probably feeling some form of anxiety or grief and that is absolutely ok.

I think all of us are feeling some anxiety or fear about the virus and those people in our lives who may be vulnerable.

Also, we are all, in one way or another, grieving our lives from a few weeks ago especially when we don’t know when this will end or what is on the other side.

As we all work through these emotions together….let’s do our best to stay connected during this strange time of social distancing.

In Ooh Me Likey, we are both into a TV show this week

In You Win or You Learn,  we decided that nearly everything about the current time in history is a learn and so we are both sharing a win this week.
