Socially Distanced Inclusivity.
It can be odd to adjust to any new sense of normal and even more difficult to accept change, even if sometimes it is for the greater good.
There have been so many different settings and scenarios that have influenced people’s behaviour in recent times and the coronavirus pandemic has meant that staying safe has come with a multitude of consequences.
In thinking about others, physical social distance is a means to keeping everybody safe and well. It is not always easy to keep everything in check and not therefore surprising that efforts for wellbeing in a physical sense have now brought into question a different type of wellness, and that is mental fulfilment.
People need social stimulation, contact and reassurance, and it is integral as to how well people feel in themselves. At a time of heightened stress, never has the need for social interaction been so heavy and that is why finding socially distanced inclusivity is important.
A lot of new ways have opened up for people to find each other in family groups or even a professional sense and these online platforms have been excellent for promoting wellness but at a safe distance. While a virtual hug is not everybody’s first thought of expression, it can be a significant point of consideration to somebody else’s outlook and life. Being socially distanced only inhibits a physical display of emotional concern and keeping this in mind can help to emphasise the need for a safe but positive inclusivity of a different variety.
