For several months people have been saying "I can't wait for 2020 to be over".  Well, it's over but the only thing that changed was a page on the calendar.  Just one more thing to add to the list of letdowns that occur every year after the holiday season.  From Halloween on, we are preparing for the holidays, so it's no wonder that many people feel sad or blue after they are over.  With that in mind this month the focus is on ideas to help you cope with the post-holiday blues.

 “To give pleasure to a single heart by a single kind act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.” ---Sa’Di

This tip was to pick up your phone and call someone you haven’t talked to for a while.  That person’s information wouldn’t have been on your phone if you didn’t have some sort of connection to them.  By reaching out to someone else you will brighten both of your days and some of the holiday blues will vanish.

Today’s coaching challenge 

How did you feel the last time someone just called to say “Hi”?  Didn’t it brighten your day and make you feel special?

This morning I heard a wise man say that we are getting it all wrong.  We should not call it "Social Distancing" instead we should call it "Physical Distancing" because when you think about it that is really what we are doing.  We are separating by a physical space of 6 feet.  Now more than ever we need to continue to connect socially.

Action to take 

If you not driving a vehicle or flying a plane right now, pull out your phone and brighten someone else’s day.  Who will you call, a friend, family member, or past co-worker?

 

Always supporting you,

Jan
