Kindness sits quietly behind all good things. πŸ™Œ Now is a time for kindness, courage and compassion. Not misassumptions, entitlement and abuse.🌻 We’ve encountered a few examples lately of people acting out and abusing young people. Cashiers trying to enforce the per customer limit on produce at checkout, shop assistants for not having items in stock, one of our team for daring to take a walk.πŸ₯Ί Let’s remember that cashiers and shop assistants are doing the best they can to help others. People are entitled to take a walk alone observing physical distancing. It’s a tough time for everyone. Let’s remember we are all in this together. Act with kindness. πŸ’• #coronavirus #kindness #courage #inittogether
People react differently to uncertainty. However you are feeling right now is valid Just be kind to yourself. 😘 Control what you can by establishing a routine. Make efforts to eat well, exercise and sleep. Try online guided meditations and fitness classes and see if they help. There are lots of great free ones.🧘🏽‍♀️ Limit your exposure to the news. Check a reliable source once a day. πŸ‘€ Social support is important so reach out to family and friends. There are lots of great ways to stay connected online. Chat, video, games, watch parties, virtual raves.πŸ˜€ Try something new or reacquaint yourself with a favourite hobby. Paint, write, read, knit.🧢 Use your smartphone or tablet to make a film and enter it in one of our free competitions for young people. See https://www.reelise.org.au/the-competition/ for details.πŸ‘†We’ll also be creating some fun challenges over on insta so we can connect, have fun and get creative together.

Monday mood... definitely Zoom audio.🀣 How about you?
It’s a great time for watch parties. What film would you choose?
We can’t control what’s going on right now but we can control how we react and what media we consume. Choose kindness. Choose consideration and compassion for others. Choose PHYSICAL not social distancing and take time out for self-care. We will get through this. And we’ll get there faster if we do it together.πŸ™ŒπŸ’• . Repost: 🎨 @themindgeek #stayhome
