Words matter. So does connection.
In these difficult times we need to connect more than ever – with people and with nature – to calm and energise ourselves. Instead of saying “I’m self-isolating”, try “I’m physically isolating myself and I’d love to say connected”.
How can we do that?
Walk to your local park, beach, or tree and call someone you care about. Describe one thing that you like about your surroundings (if your thoughts are dismal try describing the colour, the shape or the feel).
Tell the person one thing you appreciate about them / about having them in your life.
Smile if you can. Every bit of positive energy helps at this difficult time.
