At times like this, people are understandably nervous when someone around them coughs or sneezes. But even talking can spread infection.
You may have heard of the yoga practice called mauna, where a person consciously refrains from speaking.
It may sound easy, but many people have a very hard time not talking.
It is a relevant practice right now and it’s a nice feeling to not feel obligated to just talk and talk.
Spreading less germs is an added bonus.
