Today’s Third Space Connection considers compassion during the coronavirus outbreak.
Our gut response to this pandemic is probably stress, fear and anxiety. There’s a tendency to think about protecting our own health and this focus on our personal insecurity leaves us feeling isolated and vulnerable.
But many people are calling for another way through the pandemic: compassion. Here are a few resources to get us thinking about how we can counter stress and fear with compassion and mindfulness. We hope these resources not only help alleviate a little anxiety but also inspire a conversation about how we can continue to show compassion toward ourselves and our community during a pandemic.
