The COVID-19 pandemic has put a massive strain on our daily lives resulting in high levels of stress, anxiety, and uncertainty. While recommendations from the CDC about social distancing and good hygiene are the best ways to save lives and flatten the curve, it means we can’t gather in offices, places of worship, schools, exercise classes, and restaurants. People with chronic conditions who may already experience a sense of social isolation may feel even more alone.
In a time like this, it’s important to find safe ways to connect. And if we are mindful and intentional about it, we may make even deeper connections.
