After what you could only call a shocking week with the speed of this virus now is the time to get in touch with all you know. Four things to do over the weekend which will help with your self isolation and maybe reassure someone you know.
1. Contact every single person on your phone that is a friend relative or work colleague and let them know you are thinking of them and their family.
2. Get out your address book and that old one you only use at Christmas. Look up friends or family that you only correspond with at Christmas. Especially that great Aunt you’ve not seen for years and write them a short letter or send them a card saying you are thinking of them. A card or letter to someone elderly and on their own would really cheer them up.
3. Go through all your friends, family and work colleagues on Facebook and message each one that you are thinking of them, even ones you haven’t been in touch with and are just connected through groups you have joined.
4. Finally, go through your email list and do the same as above and maybe clear out some emails you’ve been keeping for a long long time and are of no interest to you anymore.
This could take more than a weekend for most people but I guarantee you will feel some love and new friendships will be born during this awful ordeal we are going through. I’ve already started mine and have had some lovely replies. Share your stories.
And, on that note please take care all my blog friends. We are all taking steps to control the outbreak and prepare to get through whatever may come of it, but adhere to what the professionals are asking us to do and remember we are all here to support each other. Think of the vulnerable and wash your hands regularly. Blog regularly we all have plenty of time to read each other’s posts.
