“These principles apparently originated with Parks Canada and were shared by my ADM within Canadian Wildlife Service,” Mark tweeted.

The email said:
“You are not “working from home”, you are “at your home, during a crisis, trying to work”.
“Your personal physical, mental, and emotional health is far more important than anything else right now.”
“You should no try to compensate for lost productivity by working longer hours.”
“You will be kind to yourself and not judge how you are coping based on how you see others coping.”
“You will be kind to others and not judge how they are coping based on how you are coping.”
“Your team’s success will not be measured the same way it was when things were normal.”

I mean, that email blew me away!
I think we can all take what it says to heart, and try to be kinder to ourselves and others right now.
Internet users were quick to show surprise over how nice this email really was.
“Have to say, if I got a message like that I really do think I’d be putting that extra wee bit in. Small words of encouragement and strength really do go a long way.”
“This is excellent. I am so happy for workers who are being treated with kindness and encouragement. All you WFH people, especially those with children in the house, your efforts are truly appreciated.”
“My mom worked for the Canadian government when I was growing up, in Quebec. She still gets a pension, though we’re now in the US. She’s been getting robo calls from the govt saying to take care of herself and we’re all in this together.”
