We are in unprecedented times and I think it is fair to say that 2020 will go down in history. As we are thrown into global lockdowns, isolation and social distancing, it is bringing out the best and worst in human behaviour although we fundamentally believe that kindness will prevail.
As the tsunami of uncertainty creeps forever closer to us, we find ourselves in strange territory, where we are being asked to home-ed our kids, stay at home and look at the prospect of loosing our jobs or staying on furlough. It is an odd period that goes against everything we have been conditioned to understand about the world. As we see the vulnerable struggling to cope with their imposed Shielding to protect themselves and the NHS, there are plenty of policies that are trying to look after our physical well-being.
Although what is lacking is the attention to our mental health. As we are learning to live in confined spaces, not able to make contact with our social groups and loved ones, or stranded in foreign countries that are not our homeland – these are all putting an immense strain on our mental well-being. And there is too little acknowledgement and support for this. And this is what is driving our passion to create a library of well-being resources to try to address this. And so The Motoroamers and Friends have come together to bring a range of Well-being topics to our homes to support us as we navigate these difficult times. From nutrition to fitness, boredom busters to home-education, there’s something for everyone to help them Cope through Covid. These videos and resources are available 247 and can be viewed and accessed as often as you need. Come on in and realise that we are #inthistogether.
