We are living through unusual times. Fear and panic surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic proliferates throughout the media, and many of us are rightly feeling wholly overwhelmed. With the majority of the population having to work from home at the moment, it is easy to become burdened with negative thoughts, and allow this to affect our health and wellbeing. On a mere physiological level, stress and fear weaken our immune systems, allowing us to become more susceptible to infection and illness.
But for all the hysteria heightened by the media, we are also witnessing a heightened sense of community, compassion for our fellow neighbours, and protection of the vulnerable. From community shops delivering packages to the elderly to teachers offering their services for free online, millions of acts of kindness are happening everyday.
‘Social distancing’ ought to be renamed ‘physical distancing’, for this is not a time to distance ourselves emotionally. Take care to remind your loved ones that you are thinking of them. This is a time to come together; the world united in a shared struggle. On a deeper level, the pandemic reminds us of our unity with the earth and our fellow humans: we are all interconnected, and must respect the land upon which we walk.
Take this time to slow down and reflect. What are your goals from life? What are you thankful for? What really matters to you?
