WE CAN stay informed so we know how to protect ourselves and our loved ones.
WE CAN be self-aware with our own health and take precautions early on.
WE CAN connect with family and friends electronically so that we lift each other up and satisfy our social needs to some degree.
WE CAN check on the elderly by phone or email to be sure they have what they need and are doing OK.
WE CAN offer support financially, emotionally or spiritually to others that need it.
WE CAN help each other to stay positive.
WE CAN practice social distancing to help slow down the spread of this virus.
WE CAN only purchase what we need at the grocery stores and leave some food and supplies for others.
WE CAN take advantage of the internet and, especially if you have kids at home, take a virtual field trip every day to a different part of the world by doing research. Zoos, major landmarks and museums all around the world have virtual tours of their facilities.
WE CAN take time every day to read a book or write something.
WE CAN be angry or upset at the situation but be sure to take your anger out in a healthy way by exercising or doing something physical.
WE CAN teach our kids some life skills such as doing the wash, cooking, budgeting, etc.
WE CAN create game night with our kids.
WE CAN share any ideas we have to help others that are in the same situation as we are in.
WE CAN be respectful of others needs, as they may be different from your own.
WE CAN finally finish that Netflix series we have been binging. (Hope you laugh or smile at this one.)
Most of all, WE CAN and need to be positive that we will get through this.
I have faith in this country and the people that live here. We can do this. I hope there are much happier things to pay attention to this time next month. Be safe. Be positive.
