As the Covid-19 situation around the world, and in Nova Scotia, continues to unfold and now with two of my family members in self-isolation, I decided to plan ahead on what to do now as I practice social distancing and what to do to keep busy if self-isolation becomes necessary.
Before considering options, here’s a personal tip from me: Whatever you choose to do to keep busy or pass time, set your watch, phone, or whatever you use as a timer for one or two-hour intervals. When the alarm goes off, it’s your reminder to stop, take a deep breath … or two … or three …, and drink some water. Deep breathing and water are simple and key wellness strategies, along with a good night’s sleep, that we often forget about in times of stress and anxiety.
Here’s my work-in-progress resource list.
