We can imagine that you may feel somewhat down in the dumps, at the moment. The coronavirus pandemic is wreaking havoc all across the world. At Synergy Merchants, our hearts are broken because of the number of people who’ve lost their lives to this virus. As well, our team remains focused on helping its clients through a very tough time. Naturally, the COVID-19 crisis is taking its toll on businesses as well.
With so many having to shut their doors to the public, business owners all over Canada are wondering about the futures of their respective enterprises. In today’s blog, we’d simply like to make the following point: brighter days are ahead. We’re all in this together. So here’s our attempt at helping to motivate you through visions of a brighter future.
Remain in constant communication with everyone that is important to you.
It’s vital to not lose contact with anyone. Just because you’ve had to close yourself off from others physically, it doesn’t mean you should be figuratively out of touch. Utilize today’s technologies to have face-to-face conversations. Tools such as FaceTime, WhatsApp and Skype are great for making calls that allow you to see others as you speak to them. Of course, these are innovations that can help you continue to conduct business.
“Everyone needs to feel a sense of unity right now,” says Travis Bradberry on Forbes.com, “We tend to react to stressful situations in different ways, and we’re good at mimicking what we see around us. Check-in with your peers. Keep an eye out for each other (even though we still need to maintain a safe distance). Be kind, empathetic, and a source of strength for those of us who really need it right now.”
Remember that laughter is the best medicine.
Probably the truest of all clichés, the whole ‘laughter as medicine’ thing can work wonders. Take moments of out of each day to watch funny videos or share jokes with friends. We could all use the laughs right now. Laughing also has beneficial health implications. It is not at all incorrect to suggest that positive emotions are good for your physical health.
Dr. Lea Waters can attest to it. She is a psychology professor at the University of Melbourne and executive board member of the International Positive Psychology Association.
“Positive emotions boost our problem solving abilities as well as our judgment, decision-making, cognitive flexibility and creativity,” she says on TheGuardian.com, “Staying positive will help you and your kids to be better at solving all the little problems that are being thrown our way right now, such as figuring out new technology platforms for working (and schooling) from home.”
