Season 2/Episode 14: Fighting Loneliness at a Time like This
In All Seriousness
Use Your Time The Way You Want
In this week’s episode, Jill and Tony discuss how to handle feeling lonely during shelter-in-place restrictions.
Both agreed that their 2020 mantra of doing something different definitely applies to the situation we’re all facing now. They also mentioned using social media and video conferencing platforms simplify and serve as ways to interact with people around the world. Or you could write emails or letters to people, even strangers, just to let them know they matter.
Tony urged listeners to step outside their front door, wave to whoever walks by, and enjoy your natural surroundings.
Jill told listeners to observe and discover what is around them. She also urged people to do what makes them happy, even if that means sitting still and doing nothing.
Both have more advice:
- Determine ways to use your talents and skills to help others through this tough time
- Establish a routine. Get dressed each day as you normally would
- Be kind and patient with others. Remember that no one, including you, is perfect
