Was quickly looking at volunteering to virtually support lonely (and now fully isolated) older residents, I think I’ll sign up for that even while on a project I could spare 1-2 hrs a week!

Notting Hill! All good, am social distancing but leaving house for walks and grocery runs! I keep going to the gym but not sure how long it’ll take before it shuts down 😩

Continue social distancing. A bunch of benched/unemployed consultants ain’t combating nothing besides depression and self pity.

You can follow the guidance and focus on containment. Be a responsible human being and community member. Lend your voice to encourage leaders to do the right thing. That should be everyone’s focus right now. Practice some self-care & wellbeing. Donate to causes that need cash right now.

Donate if you have the means
