Are you focusing on your health and well-being? It is surprising to me that it has been 6 months since we began social distancing practices due to COVID-19. Time has flown by, and I am shocked that it is almost the first day of fall already. I have attended my fair share of zoom workshops and read more articles than I can count about how to cope during this challenging time. Even though I struggle often, I try to stay positive and focus on any tiny bit of good that can emerge out of this horrible pandemic. I created this list as a way to have concrete items I can do to increase my well-being. There is really nothing new in my list; however, I wanted to share with others the ways that I am trying to stay healthy. I do not do everything every day or even every week, but it helps me when I focus on these seven concrete areas.
- Keep your immune system high
-Get enough sleep
-Don’t catch a chill/be cold
