In normal times, each of us does our best to take personal responsibility to maintain our mental and social health. But in these times of social distancing, please reach out to those who might already be disconnected. Consider picking up the phone, facetime, Zoom or connecting in other ways with people we love and a few who could use our love. Let’s listen as much as they will let us. True to our belief in the principles of restorative practices, these podcasts offer diverse perspectives on life during these times.
Podcasts for your consideration-
Coronavirus: How Emotional Contagion Exacts a Toll, by Wharton management professor Sigal Barsade. She outlines three common-sense steps to help deal with the understandable impact of high emotions.
