The Novel Pandemic: COVID-19
This pandemic has effected everyone on this planet. Everyone has been forced into isolation and social distancing. Most people haven’t seen their friends and family members in the last couple months unless it was through a screen. We don’t have the freedom to even leave the house without being scared for our lives. Many have lost their jobs due to businesses closing down during this time of peril. Those who still have their jobs are working in an environment they are not used to. They wear masks, gloves and have to keep their distance from their co-workers due to fear of spreading the virus.
People have lost more than just their jobs during this Coronavirus pandemic. Some of us have lost friends, family and neighbors during this trying time. We have had our jobs, loved ones and freedom taken away from us, and we don’t know when it will end or when things will go back to normal. Staying positive can help everyone move forward in an upward climb.
We don’t have any control over when the virus will subside and the pandemic will end, but we do have control over what we do with this time. Many of us have more free time than we could have ever wanted. How we spend this free time defines who we are as a person.
Learning Something New
During this pandemic, you could learn a new skill, such as how to play the guitar. Finally get back to that book you got half way through last year and haven’t had the time to finish. You can spend some quality time with those you live with and not have work in the back of your mind. We can even use this time to rest and relax until the time passes and all this blows over. This time can be used to our advantage, don’t waste it by wallowing in your sorrows. You can even use it to plan for the future, and this is where we can help you.
Let Us Help You During this Pandemic
We here at Barten Media are still available for you to contact during this pandemic. If you have any inquiries, we are opened to discussing future business. If you just have some questions about business in general, we will help you through this time. Our founders are small business owners themselves, and they can relate to what you are going through. They will be able to connect with you and will be willing to help in anyway that they can. So, whether you are interested in doing business with us, or just need some advice, we are here to help in any way we can. Don’t let this virus defeat you, you are stronger than this and will overcome it.
You also have the opportunity to use this time to help others in the community. If you are well off and are not as effected by this virus as others, help those in need. You can donate money to foundations who are fighting against this virus. If you don’t want to donate just your own money, you can do a fundraiser and accumulate a combined donation to give to the cause. If you don’t have money to give, you can give your time to local organizations looking for able bodied volunteers. Even the act of mowing your elderly neighbors lawn during this time can go a long way during this pandemic. There is a lot of negative things to think about right now, but there are also a lot of positives.
Don’t Be Negative, Stay Positive
Instead of looking at the negatives right now, we can look forward and find a light in the darkness. We have a lot to look forward to after this pandemic ends and everything goes back to normal. We will be able to go back into our local delis and talk to the employees without having to wear a mask and gloves. Sports will finally come back and we will be able to watch our local teams and favorite athletes compete again. We will be able to get together with all of our friends and family without the fear of spreading the virus hovering over us. There are things to look forward to in this time, so why sit around and feel sorry for ourselves.
So, in conclusion, this pandemic will eventually end, and it is up to you whether you will come out of this time ready for whatever the future holds. Right now, you may have no freedom, no job, no interactions with your loved ones, but why let these things bring your mood down. You can do all the things you ever wanted to do, but did not have the time for in the past. Improve on yourself by learning new skills and getting your business in line during this down time. You can help others that are in dire need right now by either donating money or donating your time.
If you have any questions or concerns about your own business, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are all going through this together and will do anything we can to help those in need. We are stronger than this, we will come out on the other side of this still whole and ready for whatever comes next.
