We are living unprecedented circumstances, and today, more than ever, it is clear that we are Global Citizens: We are all connected and by helping each other we can help the world.
Being a Global Citizen means realizing that we are part of a whole and that our actions can have a positive ripple effect on the lives of others. Being a Global Citizen entails being generous and compassionate towards everyone, including ourselves.
Now is the time to be a Global Citizen. With empathy, understanding and consideration we can help each other manage through this uncertain time.
Buy Only What You Need
The impulse to hoard is almost natural under stressful circumstances. We all want to make sure we have enough to provide for ourselves and our family. However, resist this urge and buy only a reasonable amount of food and goods. Realize that by buying more than what you need you may be taking from others who may be under more difficult circumstances than you.
Think of the Most Vulnerable and Reach Out
Under duress we tend to think only about ourselves and our loved ones. Take a second to think about the people around you who are most vulnerable, and come up with ideas to help them. It may be a lonely acquaintance or an elder neighbor or relative. Offer your help if you can, check on them regularly, and let them know they can contact you to ask for help or advice.
An attentive ear can be as healing as a helping hand. Open yourself to others and allow them to share their concerns and thoughts with you. Be a responsive listener, ask appropriate questions and share your experiences as well. Offer your advice or simply remind the other person that you are there for them. This may prove helpful also for yourself: When we listen attentively we get out of our which helps us concentrate on trying to find ways to help others.
Make Someone Smile
A smile can be powerful and invigorating during difficult times. Try to smile, and make others smile, whenever you can. Social media comes with many dilemmas, but it also gives us the ability to make others smile, even when they’re strangers who don’t share the same physical space as us. Use that power for the good. Share positive experiences and offer support to those who need it, no matter where they are. Your words and smiles may change lives in unsuspected ways and in far-away places.
