In light of the coronavirus pandemic, many of us have had time to reevaluate our lives and the people around us. After all, it’s always easier to appreciate things when they are suddenly taken away from you, even if it’s temporary. Therefore, it’s no surprise most of us seek human comfort now more than ever before and are finding ways to have wholesome social experiences even while following the rules of social distancing. We at Cayman Pharmacy Group have comprised a list of ways to connect while being quarantined:

Things Not Worth Postponing:

  • Telling people that we love them
  • Apologizing when we are wrong
  • Making necessary changes
  • Showing self-love
  • Finding joy
  • Living intentionally
  • Spending time with people we care about

The fear, anxiety, and uncertainty many of us may be experiencing at the moment does not have to consume us. Instead, be deliberate about reclaiming who we are and making space for things that nurture us and allow us to support those around us. Although we are in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, it’s important to remember to keep our core values and continue supporting each other. ​A crisis does not mean:

  • Our boundaries no longer matter
  • We stop caring about the people around us
  • We need to suppress/deny our emotions
  • We should go back to unhealthy yet familiar relationships
  • Our healing and growth will have to stop
  • We have the right to lash out or mistreat others
  • Our emotions become invalid

Let’s remember that we can learn and grow even in difficult times – if we let ourselves. This journey will look different for everyone, but we are an active agent in how life experiences shape us. Here are just a couple of things we think hard moments can teach us:

  • Resilience
  • Patience
  • Love
  • Endurance
  • Forgiveness
  • Awareness
  • Adaptability
