As MichelleCherie Carr Crowe Just Call...408-252-8900 says, we definitely need social connections in our lives.
Social Connection, Physical Distance-Not Social Distancing
Who else is tired of hearing the phrase "social distancing"?
Because the reality is we all need social connection, especially during turbulent times. It's physical distancing that's required, not social distancing.
How can we socially connect while maintaining at least 6 feet of space between people? Actually calling someone on the telephone is one. Making FaceTime or Video phone calls is another. Of course, there are also the now-ubiquitous Zoom meeting so people can see each other's smiling faces.
What about writing and mailing a "miss you", "thank you" or "cheer up" greeting card?
In Campbell, the police have made a new children's birthday tradition of slowly driving by with lights and sirens on to cheer up kids who cannot currently celebrate a traditional gathering of friends.
Some people are placing Happy Faces, "Stay Safe" banners and encouraging messages in their car, business and house windows.
Other neighbors have created cheerful chalk drawings on driveways.
One person even created a "Pop-Up Art Museum and Free Gift Shop!"
How about a Sharing Basket, Free Pantry or "Give One, Take One" Produce Exchange?
Sheltering-In-Place and life in the time of COVID-19 is challenging, yet remember that while physical distancing is necessary for physical health, social connection is essential for mental health. Stay safe...and stay sane.
