Social Distancing

Going stir crazy during social distancing? 
Feeling anxious or stressed? 
Below are a few self-care tips and ideas for you and your family.

  1. Be healthy. Practice good sleep hygiene, hydrate throughout day, eat healthy and keep snacking to a minimum. Limit alcohol and tobacco use. 
  2. Create new daily routines. Get up around the same time every day. Do some stretches, meditation, Pilates or yoga, take a walk around the block and get some fresh air. Whatever does it for you, get moving. 
  3. Stay physically active. Ride your bike, take a walk or go for a hike, do yard work, housework or download an online exercise app. Try to get a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity in every day. 
  4. Do things that help you relax. Read a good book, listen to music, take a hot bath, work on crafts, or go for a drive. Doing something you enjoy lowers cortisol and adrenaline levels and helps you feel happier and more relaxed. 
  5. Limit screen time. Give yourself a daily digital detox. Turn off ALL your digital devices and give yourself screen time breaks throughout the day. Limit news program viewing. 
  6. Be playful with your children and/or pets. Playtime is important! Be silly, dress up, dance, have indoor camping, listen to your children’s stories, have family game night or play in the yard. 
  7. Just breathe. Take three or more deep, cleansing breaths. Inhale creative energy and personal power. Exhale all your worries, nervous energy and negative thoughts. Taking time to breathe and being conscious of your breaths lets more oxygen into your lungs and gives you a chance to practice peaceful mindfulness. Do this 4 times a day for 3 to 5 minutes. 
  8. Fifteen minutes of sunshine. Go outside and let the sunshine do its work on you and your immune system for at least 15 minutes a day. Wear sunscreen, if appropriate. 
  9. Stay socially engaged. Call or FaceTime family and friends, check in with neighbors. Talk about things you enjoy and stay away from only talking about COVID-19. 
  10. Practice kindness and gratitude. Everyone is feeling a little stressed and anxious. Be kind: it’s contagious.
