How to Help: Show Your Kindness
This is a terrible situation. There is no way around that fact. As we enter the tenth month of this pandemic, the numbers are not good. Each of us has a right to feel sad, possibly fearful, certainly frustrated, and even overwhelmed. We have all sought out activities along the way to get us through and give us hope—one of the most effective actions has been finding ways to help.
Over the past few weeks we have been offering suggestions on how to help those who continue to serve us. In this post, we offer a reminder to be kind. It can be really difficult to stay cool when you are feeling all the feels listed above but try to do all that you can to remain courteous and patient with those you encounter when you are at the store, or standing in line at the post office, or in your home waiting on packages.
For your packages and post, you can show your kindness by keeping the path to your door or mailbox free of obstacles like snow or garbage pails. You can also be sure your address is clear for those new seasonal drivers not used to your neighborhood.
For grocery store workers, let your better angels guide you and be patient about all the extra inconveniences we now experience. Maybe even practice that same patience and courtesy with the other store patrons.
For healthcare providers, stay safe. Follow new restrictions as well as remember to be careful so you can avoid accidents that lead you to urgent care or emergency rooms.
Let’s keep helping each other through this—with kindness.
