Whether you like it or not, our lives will be forever changed. We have no idea when this pandemic will be over. While there is hope, it’s about time we accept the realities many people are facing. It’s not just happening in one country or in one industry. In most parts of the world, thousands to probably millions of people are losing jobs left and right. Many industries, companies, and brands are being affected by the lockdown caused by the coronavirus.
We don’t have the numbers right now but in the US, unemployment is rising. We’re not going to discuss politics here as we only want to deal with the problem and possible solutions.
Mental health is real. There are plenty of people dealing with anxieties. As much as we want to help, we can only do so much. Thank heavens for apps like Headspace. It’s a mindfulness and meditation app that requires some payment. But good news, it is now free for those who are unemployed.
