Using Your Quarantine Time for Good

Quiet San Diego Beach

The global pandemic, COVID-19, has taken over life as we know it. It’s definitely a strange time to be alive as this is truly is a first for everyone. So while this is going on, and the world is under quarantine, we want to share some of our thoughts and what’s keeping us going. 

Can you believe it’s nearly May? March may have been 467 days long but April has seemingly flown by. However, there is still a lot of uncertainty as to when the stay at home mandates will end and what re-opening the economy will look like, though the city of San Diego did reopen 300 neighborhood parks and trails this week.

Even under normal circumstances, daily life is full of uncertainty. Know that you are not alone if you’re feeling anxious and/or overwhelmed and that maybe there is a silver lining to the quiet stillness that surrounds us currently. Perhaps this is an invitation to a new way of being, both within ourselves, and in the world.

How can we use this time to create positive change?
