WE ARE NOT ALONE:
Remember, although we may feel very alone and isolated right now, we are in this together. Many people experience fear and isolation. Reach out to other people. Talk to others for support and keepconnected. Be careful not to watch too much TV or view too much social media.
Keep in contact with friends and family through phone calling, skyping, texting or social media. Seeing a friend’s face through FaceTime or video chat can be a real mood booster. Many churches may be offering on line programming for church members as well.
YOU ARE RESILIENT:
You are resourceful and strong. You’ve been through rough times before and you will make it through this as well. This current situation is TEMPORARY. Focus on the positive and what you are doing each day. Do things that make you feel strong and positive. This is a great time to try a new recipe or new exercise. Stimulate your creativity with a new project or craft.
KEEP UP A ROUTINE:
As much as possible, continue your routine and plan activities throughout the day. Take frequent walks inside and outside and keep up sleeping, eating and moving routines.
