As the world responds to Covid-19, we all find ourselves in unchartered territory. There is no doubt that we face difficulty ahead as we wait for the latest update and try to plan for what may come.

Be kind to yourself. Breathe.
Mental Health is something that’s very close to my heart, so I want to take this opportunity to remind everyone to be kind to yourself and to others. Australians have experienced a lot over the last 6 months between bushfires, storms and floods to now, Covid-19. This is a once in a 100-year event which brings with it so much uncertainty around everything we once took for granted: childcare, schooling, work, finances, mortgages, health, food supplies etc. None of us are immune to this stress so it’s imperative that we allow some time for self-care and to breathe. Whether it’s taking time out to read a book, take a walk, meditate, take a long bath or call a friend or loved one. Do something for you and only you each day because you can’t look after others before you look after yourself.
It’s time to come together
Several months ago, my eyes welled up with pride reading amazing stories of people all around the world banding together to support fire-stricken communities in Australia. Whether it was loading up the back of a truck with food and water supplies to young kids raising money at a self-made lemonade stand. Wherever I looked there was love, kindness and support.
I ask you to please be considerate of others during this time. You will be surprised how even a phone call to check in on someone can make the world of difference to their day. Next time you go shopping or do an online shop check with your elderly neighbour if they need anything. Next time you’re in a grocery store and pick up that last packet of toilet paper or pasta have a look around and see if there is someone else that needs it more.
For now, as a business leader, a colleague, a daughter, a sister, a friend, an acquaintance – I am with you and I am here for you. Let’s band together and support each other.
