The purpose of today’s blog is to help us all remember the importance of checking-in on one other as we continue to deal and cope with the COVID-19 pandemic.
When you’re asking someone how they’re doing, it’s very important to remember it’s not just about their physical health but their mental health as well. Ask them how they’re dealing with everything and take the time to listen and validate any concerns they may be having. There are uncertainties during this time but provide facts, i.e. if someone is worried abut grocery stores running out of food, remind them the shelves are being stocked daily and stores remain open. Let them know that you’re there for them if they need anything, and that they can always reach out to talk.
