“We all have the capability to uplift each other up.”
As the world remains on pause, we cannot deny the fact that slowly, we’re all getting used to this new and strange normal routine.
‘The new normal’ may feel a little bit weird and the loneliness factor of the isolation may be unnerving. On top of this — the continued threats of COVID-19, and the increasing number of people battling with anxiety and other mental health struggles, it seems like we are in way over our heads. So far, with different initiatives online we are still managing to live day by day, which is something to be thankful for.
So, how do we continue coping up? Fortunately, due to social media as a really unique platform we can remain connected with each other; we can somehow ease each other’s loneliness and help one another survive this difficult time.
And recently UDOU along with Joyce Pring has created a challenge aimed at encouraging an overall wellness. One of the selected few entries and a really outstanding one at that comes from our friends at Lost in the Phillipines who posted their Dance Tutorial Video of #AloneTogetherChallenge on their Facebook page! Feel free to watch it below.
If you’re not comfortable dancing alone, why not be a bit more extra by tagging your siblings to dance along with you!
Both Edward Broomfield and Matthew Steley of Lost in the Philippines has shown quite a fun and light BTS of them while learning the steps of the ‘Alone Together’. A true example of why we should all join in and have some fun too!
“Join us in fighting not only the virus, but the invisible mental war many of us are facing. Let’s all dance and celebrate. We may be alone, but we’re alone together!” a statement on their post.
