Although we can do the best we can by social distancing and other health measures, we cannot fully control what we are going through. What we can control is how we make use of this time we have at home. It's easy to slip into fear and be afraid of what's next, but what will that do to help us grow? I encourage you to choose faith and choose hope instead and know that it's going to be okay and we are going to get through this! Ultimately, it is up to you how you respond to this.
We can use this as a moment to step back from the chaos of the everyday world. We can use this time to try new things, work on our mental and physical health, and learn how to be there for others. There are so many resources and communities coming together to provide what people need right now.
