In a time when we’re constantly hearing about things we CAN’T do, it’s important to focus on what we CAN do!
Here’s some things we can do while this COVID craziness tries to control our lives, as well as some online resources:
Call someone you haven’t spoken to in awhile…a friend from college, a former co-worker or maybe your grandma who misses hearing your voice. Do it via FaceTime for an even better opportunity to re-connect.
Say a prayer for the people who are most affected by this. I’m sure many of us feel like this is an odd, inconvenient situation, but some are getting hit really hard with lost income, lack of basic supplies and of course, health issues.
Watch a new movie. Have you seen any of the Oscar’s or Golden Globe’s best pictures? Watch a bunch then have a family vote, or binge-watch lots of series on Netflix, or whatever streaming apparatus you have.
Get outside! Here’s a list of outdoor activities that are safe with social distancing:
Work out like crazy! The motivation of a New Year’s resolution has probably faded, but warm weather isn’t too far away! #summerbod
Show your furbabies some extra love. Let your feline or canine snuggle on your lap while you sign them up for their very own photoshoot! $50 from every session will be donated to Happily Ever After Animal Sanctuary in Green Bay!!
Write a bunch of thank you notes. For what? I have no idea, but you’ll think of something. It feels so good to be appreciated, so let someone know!
Cook. We eat out a lot, but if that’s no longer an option, now is the time to try a new recipe! Make some soup or bake cookies for the kids to decorate. Share your favs on social media so others can try it too!
Make a list of things that need fixing around the house then tackle them.
Declutter, organize, make a donation pile, etc.
Create a gratitude list. What are you grateful for?
Re-think your budget and monthly goals to accommodate how this coronavirus is affecting your household. Give yourself a break.
Dust off that piano or tuba and practice, or teach your kids!
Do a scavenger hunt, complete a puzzle, play some board games or build something with Legos.
Put on a soap opera. Mute the sound and create your own dialogue.
Download Duolingo, or a similar app, and learn a foreign language. Hablas Espanol?
Meditate or do yoga – virtually. Flow Yoga Studio in De Pere will be offering online classes!
Buy gift cards from your favorite local businesses to help KEEP them in business during this quarantine.
Reserve your Mother’s Day portraits session!! It’s important for moms to be IN photos with their children, so they can look back when you’re gone, and remember how it felt to be so loved. So, claim your RP Photography’s Boutique Mother’s Day session in late April!
