We are all connected virtually, some way or another, with a group of people that are trying to be uplifting or might be asking for help. They might be just reaching out for some connection to stay sane.
This is the time to push beyond your comfort zone and lean into actively participate in these virtual communities.
It is almost certain that most of us will come out the other side worse for wear, physically, economically, emotionally...We will need a strong support group and community to help us build ourselves up.
In my case, it is my gym. I usually just go in to do my stuff, have some small talk, and head out. As the gym closed to keep people healthy, the coaches kicked their virtual activity to high gear and engaged the community. A lot of people started getting more involved. Although I rarely participate, I felt compelled to get out of my comfort zone and get involved. We are now having virtual CrossFit classes and it really keeps people positive and healthy.
In my case, it was this group. But it is not about the exercise. It is about leaning into the positivity and putting more positivity into it. It might feel awkward when you have not done it before, but it gets better. You will come out with a stronger sense of community, a better understanding of those around you and a support base that will be there to help all of its members build themselves back up once this passes.
