Surviving Corona

It’s time to remind ourselves of some practical ways to get through this pandemic with our senses still intact. We know the mantra of surviving corona . . . mask, distance, wash hands, shelter in place. A few other suggestions for the many hours of every day are required to keep us on track!

MORE SURVIVING CORONA

Don’t forget to shower, take your medications, drink water (try a glass every time you go the bathroom).
Clean one thing or space daily.
Tend something growing/living (house plants or garden will do).
Be mindfully present to a sound or song, a sensory feeling, something you see, or a spiritual practice.
Reach out to a human outside your home. Computer or phone will do, and you’ll enhance and spread the well-being!
Get your heart rate up—we’re talking exercise of any sort!
Do one thing you will be glad you did later. Procrastinators, that means today, not tomorrow.
Do one thing just because you want to, something that will make you smile.
Get in at least one good laugh. Laughter is good medicine, and we need all of that we can get.

Staying Resilient

Military families are used to being on a roller coaster ride. So a recent post by a military wife and USO employee shared the following fresh ideas for surviving corona.

Great advice: “It will hurt when things don’t go the way you expected or envisioned,” so that is the time to practice “Always Flexible.” Take things one day at a time, being easy on yourself and your family. Stay connected—get creative with phones, surprise with practical gifts (even TP) and choose to brighten someone else’s day. In addition, don’t forget to charge your own batteries.

Embrace the Suck

Perhaps the most difficult, but very important, is “Embrace the Suck.” We are all on this ride together. We don’t have to like it, however, we can come out the other side intact. So whether you are the roller coaster rider who screams excitedly with your hands held up in the air, or one who grips the safety bar in terror—we are in this together and will all have stories to share.

With joy and determination,

Ardie
