We have all had a chance to read the data and results of social distancing. There are no doubt benefits–reducing social gatherings, working remotely, schools suspending classes. But being socially distant can really be an opportunity to get closer.
Think about it.
Working from home will give, most of us, an extra hour or two each day. Reducing the “guilt” of social gatherings gives us each more time with members of our families. Children being at home instead of school 5 days a week, means time gained with your children that you would have lost.
In terms of work, it gives you more time to connect with colleagues at work. Take the time that you have gained and spend an extra fifteen minutes with someone who just a few weeks ago, might have been lost in the shuffle.
