What you can do from home

Curfew and lockdowns curb our physical movement, but do not put a break on kindness. Rather, you would now have more time for expressing your compassion and generosity. There are several things you could do from the comfort of your home to care for those working for our safety and care, for those who cannot work from home and are without any pay, for those struggling to understand what the virus is all about and the gravity of the situation.Three things to do while at home:1. Donate to trusted charities for providing food and hygiene supplies to the needy.2.

Time to be generous and talk about your acts of #CoronaKindness

The spread of Coronavirus has made us realise that we need to respond decisively, but unitedly as a global family. While the buzz word is social distancing, it’s  the time for us to be inclusive in thought and action so that we protect and care for all those within our reach, and beyond. While we practice physical self-isolation, we need to open our hearts and minds to show kindness and compassion. We read a lot about people stocking up groceries and gloves, we see pictures of overflowing shopping carts and empty supermarket shelves!

Write a note to your mother to celebrate her contribution!

We are so used to our mothers taking care of us, that some of us simply take her for granted, some believe it's a mother's duty to do what she does, some think she could have done more, some others are so busy in their own lives that they do not even have the time to think of their mother, and for some it's a bit too late. As the international women's day comes up this Sunday (March 8), think of your mother's or aunt's or grandmother's role in your life. What are the little things you do out of habit because of your mother's everyday reminders?

Care in the Time of Corona!

Lately, our homes have become our offices. Our colleagues, who were our main source of interaction and our pillars of support during stressful work situations, are now working remotely. For many, the initial excitement of working from home may now be wearing out. In fact, it can be daunting to realize that it is not so easy to maintain the same level of productivity and creativity, working away from vital support systems. Working remotely can present many challenges especially for those whose work involves face-to-face discussions every day in order to arrive at the right choices. Not being able to garner such support can become overwhelming and distressing for them.

So, after a long week of working alone, battling to meet targets, number...
