Introducing Cornerstone Cares: Surviving the COVID-19 Crisis Through Learning
100% free online learning platform to help people cope with the stress and uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic
How many times have you recently heard someone say, “Everything will be fine,” sprinkled in between millions of stories about doom and gloom as the COVID-19 crisis tears across the world and brings global economies to a screeching halt? That’s quite the juxtaposition (right?), one that would leave virtually anyone in its wake with a severe case of whiplash.
The truth is, how do we know everything will be fine? When will life, as we once knew it, go back to normal—or even some semblance of what normal used to be? Add those to the many other questions, worries, concerns, fears, and uncertainties likely swirling around in your head.
This is an unprecedented circumstance. No one truly has all the answers, but there are a lot of people working really hard to find a solution that will benefit all of humankind. That alone is a little moment of joy that we all should celebrate over and over again.
But we get it: in times of crisis, just like this surreal experience we’re all living through today, it’s ok to be scared. It’s perfectly acceptable to be worried about what lies ahead. After all, we’re only human—and it’s in these times that our true humanity tends to shine. Or perhaps it’s just us holding onto any glimmer of optimism or hope in that light at the end of the tunnel.
Whatever your case may be and whatever you may be feeling, just know that you’re not alone. We’re all going through the struggle right now, even if we’re dealing with it in different ways.
It’s time to get your mind out of “crisis mode”
The COVID-19 crisis has forced many people to stay home. For the introverts out there, this is a true blessing in disguise. For all you extroverts, on the other hand, it’s pure agony. But regardless of where you sit on the introvert-extrovert spectrum, there’s a very good chance that you’ve got a lot of extra time on your ends. Let us help.
Today, we’d like to introduce Cornerstone Cares: an innovative and totally free online learning platform to help people cope with the stress of the coronavirus pandemic.
By signing up, you get free access to video playlists on the following topics (and more):
- Tips for preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus
- How to focus your attention to self-care
- Advice for managing stress during uncertain times
- Ideas for staying productive while working from home
This is our unique way of leveraging our strengths around learning and development to help the world mentally fight the stress, uncertainty, and pressure of the COVID-19 crisis.
Obviously, life still goes on—even if that means being sequestered in our own homes for weeks on end without any real human contact to speak of—but we’ve all been given a unique opportunity to slow down and actually take care of ourselves for a change.
So, embrace this incredible (and free!) online learning platform to give yourself some much-needed self-care and sign up for Cornerstone Cares.
