Senior Using Smartphone

One of the great ironies of the COVID-19 pandemic is that we’re more physically isolated than ever ... yet, for many of us, we’re more connected than we have ever been. That’s good news, says Sean Ochester, Executive Vice President of Digital & Integrated Strategy at Sage Age Strategies. “Humans are social creatures by nature, and during a crisis, we look to each other and our relationships in order to help us through,” he says.

A year ago, could you have imagined the state we are currently in?

There’s a great quote by psychologist Abraham Maslow (of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs) that’s been on our minds lately: "One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth.

That “new car” smell. Scooping into a freshly opened jar of peanut butter. Stepping onto new-fallen snow. What’s the common denominator? Well, besides being strangely satisfying, they’re all the start of something new. And we, as humans, love the idea of something fresh and new.
