Have you ever struggled with what to write in a letter to someone important? You have loads of ideas, but they’re all jumbled up inside your head, making you confused and indecisive even more. A lovable yet painfully sarcastic spinster aunt living alone in another country demanded you stay with her for a year, but you couldn’t due to travel restrictions.
We may not be able to do what we want or fulfill the requests of people we care about all the time. But there are gestures or alternative ways to let them know and feel we genuinely do care.
When we give love, it doesn't diminish us or take anything away. Instead, it lifts our spirits and enhances our health and wellness. When we let people we care about feel our love, they reciprocate the love, and they, too, will experience the benefits of increased health and wellness.
Although physical contact like touching is intimate, it should be minimized while the pandemic is still around. We should be extra careful or forgo it if possible. We could also make alternative gestures for shaking hands.
We can’t deny our connection to family and friends has been affected, as social distancing is enforced to reduce the spread. So, we have to be okay with safer versions like the elbow-to-elbow variation, waving, or blowing a 'flying kiss.' We can still do some physical contact in place of a handshake, such as your elbow touching a friend's elbow. Saying 'hi,' 'hello,' or 'glad to see you,' and other such greetings are also fine.
It's sad to think that thousands or more people have been stranded in different parts of the world and aching to get back to their home countries. Most of them don't have any assurance when they would return home.
But let’s be honest. Even with family and friends who we regularly mingled with before the pandemic, we would now be extra careful with face-to-face interaction and physical contact, even with a face shield and mask on. We’re that scared of the pandemic almost like paranoid, and that’s perfectly understandable. It’s self-preservation instinct kicking in, and nothing wrong with that.
Therefore, we should be glad for the Internet and various social media apps. They have become so indispensable for getting people connected and staying sane. Virtual meetups via Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, Facebook Room, and other similar online services help allay the impact of depression, loneliness, isolation, and separation.
Keeping in touch in person or virtually in these trying times will brighten anyone’s day especially with expressions of love and good thoughts. Words become more crucial than ever before. The isolation and the lack of human contact may not only be maddening but can affect one's productivity, dampen the spirit that may lead to depression, and many other undesirable effects.
Now gear up for a couple of enjoyable and easy things to do to shake off that awful feeling of isolation and lethargy:

Soaps have been in our lives from the start. We use them for cleaning our bodies, our hands most especially, but also for our equipment and furniture. Soaps appear in bar form, liquid form, and even foam, all because they undergo different processes.
