The Point

Common sense, in an uncommon world


APRIL 2020

During these unprecedented times, with many of us shut in or isolated, we thought we could all use a little reminder of ways to stay positive and focus on the good.

1.     Write a letter – Remember when we used to write letters?  Take a minute and pen a letter to a dear friend or family member and drop it in the mail.  They will love receiving mail and a personal note can mean so much.

2.     Take on a project around the house – Have you ever said, “if only I had more time?” Well now might be the perfect time to start, or finish, that DIY project.
3.     Virtual Gatherings – We can’t get together with friends or family in person right now, but you can organize a virtual social or happy hour on FaceTime, Zoom or other platforms. We all benefit from some face-to-face interaction, even if it is virtual.
4.     Learn a new hobby – Have you ever thought you’d really like to learn another language, start an exercise program or play a musical instrument?  There are so many options and tons of tutorials and lessons available online, do a quick search for something that interests you.
5.     Be a friend – There are many people out there down and even depressed.  A letter, a phone call, or just a simple wave and smile to a stranger across the street can go a long way in brightening someone’s spirit.

And remember…Sterling Wealth is here for you!
