Don:
 

What has been the most challenging part of covid19? 

 

I feel like there’s stress that I’m not consciously processing - I feel a lot of body pains and muscle tension I didn’t have before. It must just be stress. And it doesn’t help with all the politics.  


Are there any unexpected positives from covid19?

I’m still working but work is lighter. There’s more down time, things are slower and there’s time to reflect which is nice.

Who do you wear a mask for?

I wear a mask for everyone I come in contact with as I understand it masks are better at preventing the spread than protecting you from it. 

Helen:

What has been the most challenging part of covid19? 

 

I didn’t know that Emily’s first months would be this way, I was hoping to travel to see family. I didn’t know this was coming. It’s kind of hard for her, when she grows up I need to explain to her that her first year was at home. It’s unique.  


Are there any unexpected positives from covid19?

To see how our family can really appreciate the slower pace, it makes you more mindful and thoughtful about what’s important. This society is very fast paced, it’s hard with people always doing things. What are the priorities?  More people are walking around. When the state is open people are rushing around. I hope this can help society and a lot of families to slow down. 

Who do you wear a mask for? 

Humanity, to have the unity of people thinking about others.  It goes beyond the mask, the mask is only a symbol of what we’re dealing with and how we can think outside of ourselves and be more compassionate.
