So many of us are concerned about catching Covid-19. It is a silent stressor and creates a level of anxiety, just under the surface of our every day activities. The virus is a part of our new normal. The precautions we take are part of our new normal. If we are healthy and use our strong immunity as a defense, we may experience less severe symptoms and for a shorter period of time. That is another reason to exercise daily, in some form or fashion. We must move our bodies as they are meant to move, lift, and stretch. We must also eat lots of green vegetables. I cannot emphasize this enough.
We all know someone, or have a friend of a friend we know who has had the virus. It gets closer and closer to influencing our families and close friends daily. How many must suffer or perish before we wake up, and take really good care of ourselves? How easy is it to slap on a mask and wash our hands for 20 seconds? How easy is it to bring hand sanitizer on our hikes and trips to the grocery store? For me, I think the grocery store is the easiest place to share germs because we touch so many items during the visit that others have touched. Take a few minutes to spray down the packaging or wipe with antiviral wipes. Another option is to keep produce and packaged items in a brown paper bag for 3 days.
I hope this is a wake up call for all of the world. We must be active participants on the front lines of our own health care, lest we suffer under the care of others in sick care.
