Steps to help maintain a positive attitude and emotional well-being, both of which are very important to physical health!
Make a list at the beginning of each day of loved ones, circumstances, and things for which you are most grateful.
Do your best to get fresh air and sunshine (exercise if possible) each day; embrace nature, even if it is from afar.
If you are “sheltering in place”, engage in an on-line course (there are several free ones available) to learn more about a subject that attracts your interest or to explore educational opportunities for which you never seem to have time. Two great sites are Khan Academy and The Great Courses.
This is a perfect time to try new, healthy recipes that you have not had time to even think about; plan, make a grocery list for on-line orders with delivery or pick up.
Sheltering in place provides the perfect opportunity to start (and finish!) a cleanse; look for natural and safe DIY protocols online.
Actually read that book you’ve been planning on reading. Read two and enjoy them; a little escape never hurt anyone!
Reconnect with loved ones in your home or shelter in place location.
Daily meditation (if you haven’t tried it, check out the app “Head Space”); just ten minutes per day makes a tremendous difference!
Turn off the news and turn on your favorite music.
Reconnect virtually with old friends.
Tell the special people in your life how much they mean to you.
Make a plan for ways to improve in your professional life (maybe tighten up a business plan or improve operations) so you and/or your business is/are stronger than ever when the new normal arrives.
Ask yourself daily, “What can I learn from this challenging experience”?
10 minutes per day of yoga will help keep you moving! Check out the app Pocket Yoga.
