It was a shock to everyone as the coronavirus and COVID-19 crisis began making its way across the world. Countries worldwide have imposed social distancing and stay at home quarantine regulations. These measures were used to slow the spread of the virus. By working together, we have seen improvements and businesses will begin to reopen their doors soon. As we adjust to the new normal of life with updated safety and hygiene regulations, here are some advice for keeping busy and healthy during this transitional period.
Advice for Keeping Busy At Home
Although most gyms are still closed, you need to make time to exercise daily. Daily exercise is incredibly important to maintain a healthy mind and body. You can watch exercise videos on YouTube, or even join a live yoga or another type of exercise class online, too. If you can go outside to exercise, don’t forget to practice safe social distancing. That means you should stay at least two meters away from another person. In addition, some areas are still recommending or requiring the use of face masks in public areas, too. Daily exercise will keep your immune system strong and healthy.
Safe Grocery Shopping & Cooking
Did you know that you can order online from most grocery stores? You can have food delivered or schedule an order to be picked up right at the front door. If you do need to make a trip to the grocery store, avoid busy hours and keep a safe distance from other shoppers. Also, wipe down grocery store items once you return home. Disinfecting any surfaces that may have come in contact with the virus is a good idea. Once home, you can cook healthy meals for your family. You will be surprised how creative you can get with extra time on your hands. Although many people miss their favorite restaurants, most are offering delivery and take out options to help keep their businesses afloat during this difficult time. In addition, some businesses are expected to reopen in the next few weeks or months with adjusted hygiene and safety protocol.
Daily Dose of Sunshine
Research has shown that getting a dose of daily sunshine is good for your health by providing Vitamin D. If you have a yard, head outside daily for sunshine and avoid the sun during 10:00am to 4:00pm. Early morning or late evening sun is best when the sun’s rays are not so strong. If you happen to live in an apartment or have no yard, you can sit by a sunny windowsill to enjoy a healthy dose of Vitamin D.
Get Your Home Organized
You probably have been putting it off for years, but you now have the time to organize your home and declutter messy drawers and closets. While cleaning, make sure to put aside old clothes or other household items that you no longer want. That way, you can donate them later. Old clothes, toys and other household items in good condition should go to people in need. Lastly, deep cleaning and sanitizing your home as you get organized is a good idea.
Enjoy Precious Time with Loved Ones
This unprecedented experience has added stress to many people’s lives. However, by keeping busy you can avoid becoming overwhelmed. Take advantage of the precious time at home and spend quality moments with your loved ones. Watch movies, play cards or board games, listen to music or make your own dance party. If you look on the bright side, this is actually a time that you will treasure later. If you find yourself in quarantine alone, stay connected using video call applications to reach out to friends and family
