Stay calm and carry on (from home)

The enemy is invisible but fierce - ready for a sneak attack to those unsuspecting people still lingering in the streets and stores. First, your best line defense are the walls of your home. Stay home and stay safe. Don't let the enemy in via your housecleaner, an Amazon box (the virus can live for up to 72 hours on cardboard), or your shoes. Wash your hands often. Clean your cell phone often with alcohol (your cell phone is dirtier than your toilet). Cover your mouth if you cough or sneeze.

One of the most important things in boosting your immune system is to breathe! Relax, don't panic. You've got this! Take this time to learn how to meditate (and teach your kids). There are several great phone apps - Calm, Headspace, Ten percent Happier, Insight Timer. You can also sign up for a free meditation mentor program on Do yoga or pilates at home. Listen to music or a podcast. Learn a new language. Learn how to knit. Learn how to play an instrument. Go for a walk and listen to the birds chirp while you inhale fresh clean air (6 feet away of course). Sit under a tree. Smell a flower. Surround yourself with nature. Put away your phone, but do use it to connect with others. Schedule a virtual happy hour. Schedule a virtual playdate.

But stay home and breathe. Take this time to reflect on what is really important in your life.
