During this unprecedented time over 80% of America is under a stay-at-home order. The past few weeks many have been practicing social distancing. To overcome this pandemic, we all must do our part to protect one another and reduce the overload to our medical facilities.
Social distancing can take a major toll on a person that fights depression or other mental illnesses. Being social is the biggest thing to help these people in need! That is why I don’t like the term “Social Distancing” but rather think of it as “Physical Distancing”. We live in a world that technology is readily available, and I am challenging people to reach out to friends, coworkers, and close acquaintances frequently during this time. We can maintain our distance and follow the guidelines set by our states and reach out through various social media sites to connect with one another. We can all overcome this and become stronger afterwards. But it takes all of us together to make this possible! Humility can go a long way.
I challenge you to reach out to at three people today and continue contacting three people everyday over the next two weeks. You may be the shining light someone needs to overcome and persevere during this time!
