The Importance of Family & Friends

“It’s all about the quality of life and finding a happy balance between work and friends and family.” – Philip Green

Surround yourself with caring people.

Focus on others, more than yourself. Virtually check on people around you, have those conversations you could not have for a very long time. Of all the resources we can draw upon when the chips are down, our friends and family are the most valuable. Discover who your kids and partners really are, and I mean, really—with no interruptions, not in fragments, you have more than enough time. Yes, you have nowhere to go or be, so be present in the moment. There is no excuse now.  We are called upon to love each other and to raise our children with strength, conviction and moral fortitude – This is your responsibility!

  1. One of the advantages of this pandemic is definitely that we get to spend more time with our immediate family and get to know them on a deeper level and build stronger connections and relationships

  2. I was guilty of this, not checking in with my family and friends. I would rather wait for them to check in with me. However the pandemic has reminded me of the value of these relationships and also not taking it for granted, it is my responsibility to put in the effort as well. I have enjoyed the extra time that i have spent with my wife strengthening our connection and marital bond during the pandemic.

  3. I spent a significant amount of time focusing on my work during this pandemic until I realized how short life can be, I am intentionally spending quality time with my loved ones

  4. I am the best one amoung my friends and family with checking up, especially when I am in a bad space speaking to one of them and knowing they are doing fine makes me feel slightly better.
