Here are some wellness tips for dealing with the stress of social distancing

  • Actively participate in your day and focus on the things you can control, not what’s out of your control.  Maintain a routine.  If working from home, get up and get ready as if you were going into the office. Shower, get dressed, eat regularly, exercise, etc. 

  • Connect socially with friends- There are numerous apps that can be used so you can still see the people you care about. FaceTime, Zoom, Marco Polo, House Party, etc.

  • Stay informed and take breaks from the news.  If it starts to repeat, then you’ve already heard it, and it’s time for a break.  Limit your news updates, and put your mind on other things.

  • Mix in healthy food with the extra treats lying around the house.

  • Go outside.  Get fresh air

  • Take one day at a time, try not to get too far ahead

  • If you get bored, vary activities and don’t spend too much time on any one thing: Listen to music, Read a book, Cook, play board games, do puzzles, practice creative outlets, exercise, go for a walk, etc.

  • Look for house projects you’ve wanted to get to, but haven’t had the time for i.e. clean the corners

  • For parents: Be gentle with yourself and your kids as you adjust to being home, working, schooling, etc. 

    • Educate your kids about the situation.  Remain calm, while talking to kids about the importance of social distancing, schooling from home, staying well by practicing good hygiene and handwashing, etc.  If we panic, they panic. 

  • If you need more help coping with stress or coming up with fun activities, reach out to others, including us Andre Neitzel and Adam Slack, to share ideas.
