Remain Calm and Take Care of Yourself

Yeah, I messed up last Sunday… and a bit today…

With all this hysteria going on, let us remember to take care of ourselves. We need to take the time to relax, talk to people (while social distancing to prevent spread), and in general do things that will keep us healthy.

For relaxing, I am thinking:

  • Take a bath
  • Read a book
  • Meditate
  • Self massage

To keep up with socializing:

  • Texting more
  • Using Snapchat
  • Video chat with friends and family

Keeping healthy is not just about social distancing:

  • Exercise at home
  • Continue to go outside for fresh air by walking/running/hiking, but avoid close contact with others
  • Do not just stock up on your favorite treats, make sure you buy frozen produce, canned produce and bags of grains or beans, but get some fresh stuff to enjoy this week, remember the grocery stores will be open and you can go back to get more things
  • And if you are sick, take care of yourself:
    • Drink plenty of water
    • Get plenty of sleep
    • Take some Tylenol to reduce your fever, if you have one
    • Eat healthy foods to improve your chances of getting better sooner

We all need to do our part to flatten the curve and that primarily means taking care of yourself.
