סיפור ישן-סידור חדש

I remember the first time I saw my Family Doctor at my HMO for a routine checkup after his secretary had been fired and he needed to type my info in... all by himself. He usually had a warm smile, was calm and calming and gracefully accepted my natural medicine health choices. But from this day on, he became uptight, looking at his index finger trying to land on the correct space on the keyboard. I could have been Princess Di sitting in front of him, or just plain ‘ol me and he wouldn’t have noticed the difference.

When learning to #workfromhome, new apps, algorithms,documents, zooms, etc., draw our attention even though most of us are much more comfortable with our laptops and our keyboards than my MD was then. Our eyes and ears are on our screens and we often miss out on eye contact with our family or even with our on-screen work partners, when trying to look at them while answering whatsapps.
