Negotiation Begins at Home

7 TIPS FOR A CONFLICT-FREE LOCKDOWN


COVID-19 has, suddenly, seismically shifted the way we live our lives.

For a mighty chunk of society, free movement and social interplay have vanished overnight. In the battle to smash the deadly virus, we find ourselves in enforced home confinement, cooped up together for weeks or months.

Siloed living isn’t a choice. We all know how critical it is to save countless lives and put a brake on infection rates. But, for cohabiting family or friends, lockdown throws up all kinds of testing challenges.
