There's been a lot on your mind lately... So glad you're here.
Three things you need to know:
(1) It's OK to not be OK.
(2) It's OK to figure out what you need for self-care.  
(3) Self-care isn't selfish.
This page is here to give you some direction and inspiration to find it.
Here is a list of ideas to keep yourself well during COVID-19
Sheltering-In / Quarantine that will engage your mind and emotions since it's good to limit Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and the like ;-)
This is not an easy time for many.
It's especially important for you to keep yourself healthy and well.
  • Meditate (scroll below for two suggestions)

  • On-line learning - many institutions are offering free classes. You can take FREE Ivy League online courses

  • Connect with family and friends via video (Skype, Zoom, Facetime, Google Meet, etc.) rather than via text or phone

  • Learn a new skill - again YouTube has a wealth of "how-to" tutorials

  • Have a "meal" with family and/or friends - virtually.

  • Declutter that closet, the pile of papers or that "junk drawer"

  • "Attend" a virtual show (Cirque du Soliel anyone?), concert or opera - so many are being offered for free!

  • Perhaps you have heard about the virtual museums? Here is another list

  • Or of touring the national parks?

  • Board games/card games

  • Cherish relationship moments - when you look back, what fond memory will you have? Be intentional in your conversations with your loved one.

  • Find out more about your personality. Take a fun Enneagram or MyersBriggs Assessment  (these are free versions, not the official versions)
