I hope you and your loved ones are in good health. Like you, we’re hanging in there as we deal with all that’s going on. But we really want to check in and let you know that we’re thinking of you every day.
If you or your family have become ill because of Covid-19, we hope that you are on the road to recovery. If you have suffered a loss, please know that have you have our deepest sympathy.
If you work in the medical community, in areas that are considered essential places of work or other frontline situations, I’m pretty sure that you didn’t anticipate dealing with the trauma of a pandemic when you started out. You’re our heroes and we appreciate all that you’re doing.
For teachers, we all have a new appreciation for what you bring, not just to the classroom, but to the daily lives of students.
For parents who are now home-schooling your kids, you’re doing a terrific job. You’re probably doing better than you give yourself credit for.
Maybe you’re able to work from home (great) but you’re Zoomed out (not so great) with calls all day, trying to look professional above the headshot.
For those who have lost jobs or businesses, we are so sorry. We recently created a private Maxwell’s Playbook group on Facebook were everyone can safely share thoughts on lots of topics including the need for assistance. If you’re looking for a job, have a business that we can support, or have something else on your mind, please reach out to join the group and let us know how we can help.
In the meantime, try to find something positive each day. Finding moments of gratitude is important. Waking up each day brings another chance to get it right. It might not always be easy but taking time to remember those things can help lift our hearts.
And, take care of yourself. Try to stick to normal routines as much as you can. Continue to boost your immune system with fresh fruit and veggies whenever possible. Get outside and move. And practice self-care in everything you do.
Sending you virtual hugs!
Robin Fenner, Founder, Maxwell’s Playbook
