Three things you can do to stay safe, sharp, and healthy at home

Published April 24, 2020 by Shane Kersh

I urge all readers of this blog to follow government directives to stay at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19.As the U.S. records more COVID-19 positive cases, 95% of the country's population is being ordered to stay indoors except for those who need to go out for basic necessities and for those who provide essential services such as those in law enforcement, healthcare, and some in food and beverage industry.

During these times, staying at home while the world is facing a major health threat is no vacation.The barrage of news updates along with unverified information can make one anxious, angry, and down.As the rest of the world is trying to fight the virus, staying at home could mean protecting oneself and others from contracting the disease.To make the most of one's time in quarantine, I suggests the following activities.

A cluttered space can make a person more anxious. Those who go online for conference calls and meetings can start by setting up their workspace. Setting up a comfortable area, and that will also look good on camera, will make a person feel confident.It might also boost their productivity. Kersh Family Law notes this is also applicable for those who are planning on working on personal projects.If things at home get too chaotic, a person can take a breather at this clean and comfy place.

Staying in bed, scrolling through social media, or binge-watching for hours might do more harm than good.Kersh Family Law encourages people to prioritize their overall well being during these trying times.Aside from exercising at home to keep the body healthy, it is also the time for people to focus on their mental health.Breathing exercises, meditation, journaling, praying, and other mindfulness activities can help a person cope with the situation.As humans are also social beings, staying connected with family and friends can be good for one's overall health.

Rest could mean different things.Some feel at ease when they do the things that they enjoy, such as making music or baking.Others might appreciate getting an hour or two of extra sleep.Regardless of how one defines rest, the important thing is to spend time doing something that will benefit the mind and body.With what's happening now in the world, it's important to find that pocket of time to find some peace and quiet.
