By locking people down we are denying them their basic human need for contact and connection.
By social distancing we are doing the same.
By forcing these so-called ‘Non-Essential’ businesses like Spas to close, we do the same.
In some countries, like here in Malaysia, even Chiropractors and Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners are considered non-essential and so needed to close when we went into full lockdown.
But all of these activities are part of people’s overall Wellness and Wellbeing.
So, when we lock all these services down, along with that…Wellness Is On Lockdown!
PS: This is not a statement about the merits of lockdowns. Rather, an observation about the impact.
