Sometimes it's easy to forget, as we sit isolated at home, that we truly are in this together. The brightest minds across the globe are working on a vaccine, so we have to continue to do our part. Stay safe and healthy, be kind and stay patient.

10 things to keep you sane or at least having some sense of normalcy during the Coronavirus
by Ken Abrahams
- Limit the amount of news that you read and watch. It is not only depressing but often inaccurate.
- Try not to worry about what neighbors and others are doing. There are a ton of media out there that show us there are a lot of less than intelligent humans out there. Control what you can control.
- Limit non-essential screen time. There seems to be a thought process out there that this gives you a “blank check” to binge watch and play games with unchecked abandon. There are lots of other ways that you can spend time.
- Do a board game night with friends and family. There are lots of games that can be played virtually like Monopoly or Clue and just use the boards you already have there is no need to buy online versions of the same games.
- Try a new recipe. Chances are you have a lot more free time on your hands. Great time to try something new.
- Check on neighbors. There are lots of ways to do this without face to face contact.
- If you have ancestry.com work on your family tree. This will give you an excuse to connect with family near and far.
- Do something to help the cause. There is so much need and so many ways that you can help. Order supplies for a friend, neighbor or local charity, make masks, order food for first responders, post reviews for neighborhood restaurants that offer takeout. There is little or no cost, but the benefits are huge.
- Stick to your “normal” daily routine. Get up, shower, dress and have breakfast. This helps now and when you need to go back to a daily routine. Even though Zoom meetings can be pants optional, should they be?
- Get outside. Go for a walk, a run or a bike ride. Exercise is a good healthy way to social distance
Please try and stay positive. There is a lot going on in the world, but it will get better.
