- Recognize Others
The main thing you can do for the world right now is to spread good vibes and great energy to all those on the front lines. The doctors, nurses, staff, patients, workers, drivers are literally risking their lives for us on the daily, show them some respect and appreciation.

Read a book you haven’t heard of, listen to a famous musician and critique them, watch a movie or even better a documentary. Once again, use this time to understand the world a little bit better.
