A Summer Like No Other
This summer is not like any summer we have ever had before. The global coronavirus pandemic is affecting all of our families, our businesses, our communities and our way of life. During this time, we at Natural Source/Maison Beljanski wanted to reach out and update you on how we’re approaching the situation.
First and foremost, our hearts go out to anyone who’s been impacted by the virus, either directly or indirectly. Our thoughts are especially with those who are sick, to whom we extend our heartfelt wishes for a full recovery. To further support the selfless healthcare workers around the world who are on the front lines working tirelessly to care for people in need, Maison Beljanski will be offering 10% off all in-store purchases for Healthcare Workers and Emergency Responders with a current ID until Labor Day. Thank you for everything you are doing.
Our company was founded on core values - trust, customer success, innovation and equality - and our values are unwavering and continue to guide everything we do. Be assured that the health and safety of our employees, families and communities remains our top priority. From the moment the lockdown began, Maison Beljanski has continued to serve our community virtually, paid its employees and provided their benefits until they are able to welcome back our clients to our store.
Your health is our main focus, and despite all the logistic challenges, all the employees at Natural Source/Maison Beljanski keep doing everything they can to make sure orders are met. We also remain available by email and by phone for any question you might have, and our team will get back to you as soon as possible.
Clearly the past few months have been most trying for everyone: mentally, physically and economically. Let’s remember that facing and breaking through adversity is part of the work required to discover who you are. We’re called upon to be our best selves, with patience, understanding and compassion. As Winston Churchill famously said: “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
What to do this summer?
Summer activities during COVID-19 aren’t quite the same as your traditional summer. Don’t focus on all the summer activities that have been canceled. Instead, think about the positive, and all the wonderful things you can still do at home or while social distancing this summer.
Walking, stargazing, reading, meditating and/or writing are all deeply therapeutic activities. Journaling is a well-known tool for helping you organize your thoughts and vent your emotions, especially in anxiety-ridden times. Reading a book will provide both entertainment and a learning opportunity.
Finally, this moment reminds us of the paramount importance of human connections. Although this time of social distancing is challenging, maintaining social connections is key. Stay in touch with family and friends on a regular basis through phone calls, emails and texts. Learn how to use video conferencing such as FaceTime or Zoom for virtual visits. If anything, COVID-19 has provided an agonizing reminder: Life is short and precious. Let’s use our time to emerge from the pandemic with richer, deeper lives.
