Social Distancing (how to stay sane)

April 6, 2020 

I know that we all are feeling a little isolated and claustrophobic with all the stay home ordinances right now. Let’s first talk about what “social distancing” is. Social distancing is a term coined by law makers in reference to staying at least 6 feet away from others. This is to help stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. Social distancing has made everyday life a bit harder for most – no more shopping at certain stores, no more eating at restaurants, no bars or sport events.

This has put a strain on our everyday lives. However, there are still many things that you can do to keep your sanity and socially distance yourself while staying active like:

  • Take up learning Yoga or maybe a martial art virtually
  • There are many online tutorials right now that are free
  • Go on a hike - there are many trails that are open if you stay at the 6 feet recommended distance.
  • Take up some mediation lessons

Making sure you are getting some fresh air is going to help tremendously with your health and mind set. Using this time to do a little focusing on yourself could do anyone some good. Maybe we can get out all of this with a fresh mind. Whatever it is you find to help keep strong, healthy and mindful during this time then you’re doing good.

Here are some other, less active, ideas:

  • Face time friends and family
  • Hang out with neighbor’s driveway to driveway
  • Maybe study or read a book
  • Play a board game or electronic game
  • Learn how to cook OR teach others how to cook
  • Learn how to sew by making some masks to help our essential workers
