Amidst the uncertainty and the unprecedented change in lifestyle for each and every one of us these days, it is important to hold on to what we can. Staying in touch with family and friends via technology, preparing home-cooked meals, making the occasional dessert, exercising, and getting a breath of fresh air are all things we can do to stay connected to our previous lives and to pass the time presently. First and foremost, I hope that you and your family members are safe and healthy. To those working in essential businesses – thank you for all you do and for putting yourselves out there every single day.
Since most of us have more time at home now than ever before, I plan to write a few more blog posts this month than I typically do. Because we all have differing situations and obligations, it is difficult to write a post that speaks to everyone, so please understand that not everything I share will be relevant to you. But for those of you who are working at home, remotely, this one’s for you.
I came across an article recently and thought I would share a few lines with you here. The back links for the full article and related information are included below. This is all in good fun in the hope to interject a little humor into your new normal. Cheers!
