What COVID-19 has taught us about gratitude
Hey, we get it.
This pandemic seems to keep expanding by the day, and you are “stuck” at home with the family. If there was one event that tested everyone’s nerves this would be it.
However, being “stuck” at home is a blessing in disguise. You can choose to view it as being stuck, which will trigger all sorts of emotional reactions in you, or as an opportunity to connect and bond together as a team or unit.
Let’s express gratitude for the things we take for granted.
You are still here, alive. What a wonderful gift that is. You can still see and experience nature, yourself, and others. How you relate to what is around you can dramatically improve your emotional wellbeing. Once we recognize that life itself is our most essential nature, how can we be anything but joyous? Life is a mystery to be lived.
What does it mean to be grateful for your health? Right now, this very second, there are people in ICUs all over the world, admitted due to all sorts of health conditions. We take our health for granted and we fail to recognize that there are others who do not possess good health. However, once we recognize this gift, it can motivate us to improve our diet, exercise, and ultimately live a healthier lifestyle.
We all get on each other’s nerves. We argue. That is every family. When it’s all said and done, these are the people that matter most in your life. Let’s give thanks for every moment you get to be with your family and experience kinship.
Thankfully, we live in an era where technology enables us to keep in touch with people much easier than ever before. But it doesn’t end there.
There is also technology to help you securely create digital time capsules. That would be us, Skypod. You can create a pod that delivers files, messages, videos or any media to a recipient at a later date. You can share memories and messages with your loved ones, either during or after life.
In summary, let's always be grateful for what we have. It's not only good for your well-being, but it also prompts you to treat life with more care, and to love everything life throws at you.
