PATIENCE IS BITTER BUT ITS FRUIT IS SWEET

We are living some crazy days globally and we could really use some distractions. Hence, we have made a list of resources that might help.

As we all have different situations to face (some have to work from home, others don´t, some have kids to take care of, others don´t, etc.), we have made a mixed list: for those who need an entertaining afterwork and for those who need an entertaining day itself.

Take this time to meditate, to work hard with no distractions, to complete those to-do´s you had at the end of your list or to learn about interesting topics, but mainly, to spend time with your family. In our regular daily routines we are submerged in an "always rushing" dynamic with little or no time to invest in me-time or family time. So embrace the time given to compensate it.

Best wishes to you all. Stay safe. Be patient. Be strong. Choose humanity over selfishness. #StayHome
