COVID 19 Tips

COVID 19 has many of us worried about the health and wellness of our families and our economy.  Are you scared? Are you worried? Are you seeing anxiety or restlessness in members of your family?  Remember, knowledge is power.  Here are a few tips to help you and your family cope but also stay healthy.

Keep a Routine
With kids home from school and parents home from work, it is important for everyone's mental and emotional heath that you keep a routine.  Keep yourself busy in a very routine way.  While you may be tempted to sit on the couch, order pizza and binge your favorite series on tv, that may be do more harm than good.  We all have a need for normalcy when things are anything but normal.  Here is a blog from a few years ago that can help you see what you could put in your routine.  It was originally written for summer, but definitely applies to this prolonged spring break we are currently experiencing.

Be sure to make time to exercise, meditate or do anything that relaxes you.  Spend a few minutes each night planning for the next day.  Include family work time, projects, reading and schoolwork time to keep everyone mentally engaged.  Here are a few blogs that might give you some things to think about on that front.

Stay Informed
Be careful where you are getting your information.  Finding out the facts without getting all the hype is important.  You need a trusted source that uses objective and clear information.  Trust that the CDC has everyone's well-being at the heart of what they are communicating.  Notice that they have not said anything about wearing a mask and gloves everywhere.  Having those supplies handy would be a good idea, but you need to think about being practical in your preparedness.  Do what is recommended (wash your hands frequently, don't touch your face, keep a safe distance from those around you, etc.) to keep yourself at a lower-risk.   


Now is a good time to spend less and do more with what you have.  With incomes and the economy in constant flux, you may want to dial back spending and do some up-cycling.  You might consider taking the Eat Better for Less class online to help you cut back on your grocery bill.

That's it for now.  Stay healthy!
