10 Ways To Help Ourselves And Those Around Us In A Crisis

By Breanna Brown, APG Cash Drawer

Coronavirus Globe

As we try to cope with an unprecedented health crisis, a lot of us are finding ourselves in work-at-home situations they haven’t experienced before. This can create uncertainty and a sense of isolation, especially as sit-down restaurants and retailers shut down temporarily to help arrest the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Times of crisis present us with an opportunity to come together as a community – to help neighbors and family. This is complicated by social distancing, which medical experts say helps prevent contagion by keeping at least six feet apart from others. Nevertheless, we can still find ways to help our community. Here are some ideas:

1. Videoconferencing

Using FaceTime, Zoom, Messenger and other video tools help bring people together and prevent isolation. These tools are useful on an interpersonal level and in a work context, where they can be employed for team building and collaboration. Use videoconferencing to reach out to friends, neighbors, and family to alleviate anxiety for those feeling isolated.
