Navigating Covid 19

We're one world. We're all in this together.

I work from home on a normal day so some of this is less stressful for me, but I once broke up the daily isolation with a trip to the coffee shop, a glass of wine at the local bar, shopping and errands, or an appointment at the local nail salon.

I often complained I had so much office work I couldn't find writing time. Now I have lots of writing in quarantine time! I've been taking walks as it warms up and picking up take-out to support my local restaurants and favorite 61B Cafe. I feels sad seeing my neighbors and I cross the street while walking to keep a "social distance" rather than passing on the sidewalk and saying hello - but it's the safe and right thing to do.

Here are a few tips:

  • Get outside and breath some fresh air at least once a day

  • Make a project for yourself that you've been wanting to take on for a while

  • Have a book, a crossword puzzle, a jigsaw puzzle, and more going

  • Check on your elderly relatives and neighbors - give them a call, help them order groceries on line, make sure they are OK

  • Use FaceTime or video chat wherever possible to give yourself people contact

  • Write - even if you're not a writer, journal, express yourself

This too shall pass! And, to quote our local Wellness Center, wash your hands and don't be a "jerk face" lol

Never give up on your dreams. Small dreams, big dreams. Keep them right on the horizon where you can see them. Maybe it takes a few years or a few decades or, if you’re me, just about your whole life
