Stay Safe and Motivated at Home
The Coronavirus has impacted businesses, industries, economies, and social interaction around the globe. Schools have pivoted to virtual classes, employers have promoted working from home, and travel has been restricted domestically and internationally. It’s difficult to grasp the scope of this virus but one common feeling around the world is the abrupt adjustment to spending more time at home. Working from home, being around family, and not being social with others has brought changes to everyday life that no one expected. Here are some ways that you can protect yourself from coronavirus, get the supplies you need without leaving your home, and how to stay active and entertained during the quarantine.
One of the easiest and most effective ways to prevent the spread of coronavirus is to wash your hands. Doctors recommend washing for 20 seconds or more to fully sanitize your hands. Furthermore, avoiding touching your face will help any remaining virus cells and bacteria from the possibility of being inhaled and reaching the lungs where the virus is known to thrive. Staying at home during the quarantine and limiting any exposure is highly recommended as the virus is still very contagious and can be spread easily. Nevertheless, in the event that you must be in a social environment, it is recommended that you practice social distancing and stay 6 feet away from other people. Combining all of these tactics will give you the best chance of staying healthy and avoiding the coronavirus.
Although many individuals have prepared for an extended time in quarantine, you may reach a moment where you need supplies that you do not have at home. There are businesses that can help bring grocery items to your door, minimizing exposure and contact with other people. Apps like Instacart send someone to the supermarkets to bring you the items you’ve requested. While apps like Grubhub and Ubereats can bring you your meals, contactless, from local restaurants that are still open selling carryout meals. Supporting your local restaurants is essential to the food & beverage industry and most restaurants are offering curbside service. The curbside service is another way to get your favorite meals while minimizing exposure. By ordering and paying online, you will be able to simply arrive at your location and the staff will bring your food out to you!
Staying at home for multiple weeks has changed our daily lives drastically. Every social aspect of our lives has now become an at-home activity. Exercising, working, every meal, even socializing with others is solely done via phone or video chat at home. So here are some tips to staying active and entertained during the quarantine. Limit your TV and social media screen time and research at-home workouts to keep you fit while the gym is closed. Do a deep clean of your home as you are spending more time there and more germs may build easily. Pick up a hobby and spend your free time pursuing it. Master it! Learn to play an instrument, read a book, or learn a new trade with the hours you have at home. This may even be a great time to get creative with your social distancing dating ideas. Finally, develop a daily routine and develop goals for the week to keep you motivated and active while in such close quarters.
