In these trying times of ‘social distancing,’ we hope to promote social solidarity and community online. Together, we’ll get through this. And the image, so unbelievable right now, of all of us doing yoga together, at the studio, will become a reality. Again.
We invite you to share any thoughts, stories, resources and ideas that this time brought as a positive change, as a smile for you. Something that maybe you didn’t have time to do before COVID-19 or haven’t thought of in the past.
Please share it in the comments below.
Some of the basic things we should be full of gratitude for, and sometimes take for granted:
Health of our family members.
Making it through this time of isolation, with online connections.
The nature around us, available hikes and walks.
The weather in the Bay Area, to enjoy all the outdoors, safely.
Yoga, available anytime, anywhere.
The internet to have access to all things we miss, shopping, yoga, friends, zoom.
Some of the things you might miss once we get back to “normal”:
Lack of traffic.
Lots of time to enjoy nature, listen to birds, without checking your clock.
Lots of quality time with your partner, kids.
Time to cook dinner.
Slowness in the air, uncharacteristic to Bay Area.
Ability to not change your pj and not leave the house for a day or longer, without anyone noticing.
Some of the things we will not miss:
Working from home while managing your kids online learning.
Not being able to give a hug to your friend.
Not being able to do backyard barbecue with the neighbors.
Not being able to take your kids for Trick or Treat and run around with other kids.
Social Distanced or lack of Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations with family.
