Coping With COVID-19

Reach out and touch someone – VIRTUALLY!

Interacting physically with family and friends has been part of our lives since the beginning of time. We are wired to do so.

At this time, being unable to do so, or recommended/mandated not to do so, is tough on many. However, thanks to technology we can interact. The advancements and cost effectiveness of cell technology and video conferencing has been able to create environments where it’s “almost like being there”.

This will probably be the interaction of choice for a while. With that in mind, I have started phoning and videoconferencing with my family and friends as opposed to just shooting off an email or a text.

To date this approach has allowed me to have some great interaction … with each session ending with a smile on my face.

I hope you will consider doing the same. It will help your sanity and the sanity of others. We are all in this together.
