CCV Take Care 4.10.20

A WEEKLY NEWSLETTER FOR EMPLOYEES OF CCV: APRIL 10, 2020 KEEP YOUR SPIRITS HIGH!

Hang in there, team! Don’t forget CCV has been around since 1908 and has survived many setbacks, including fires and recessions. We are all in this together and we will survive COVID-19. Keep your spirits high and look forward to the day when we are working together again! In the meantime, let’s stay connected and help each other by sharing information through our “CCV Take Care” weekly newsletter.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NETFLIX SHOW? Shannon O’Neill , Administration: “I don’t have a Netflix subscription, but I can recommend two shows available on Youtube: Black Books and Big Fat Quiz. Also, I do know that IT Crowd is available through Netflix.

Tom Jakob , Racquet Sports: “Tiger King, Wild, Wild Country, Portlandia, Documentary Now!, Parks & Recreation, The Pharmacist, and Ozark.” Ashle Wade, James River Dining: “Greys Anatomy, On My Block, Lucifer, The Haunting of Hill House, and The Witcher”

WHAT BOARD GAMES HAVE YOU BEEN PLAYING? Erica Phillips , Fitness: “As a family, we have been playing a lot of games. Like Yahtzee and Sorry. As well as some card games like Skyjo, Dutch Blitz, and Uno Attack. We are a big game family.” Amber Irvin , Special Events: “We have done some board games, but not a lot. Trying to be outside in the yard a good bit too. My boys love Junior Monopoly mostly.”

Olivia Bowling , James River Golf: “I live with my younger sister and we have been playing Yahtzee, Guess Who, and card games! I also recently finished my back deck, so we have been having lots of morning coffee dates and happy hour out there!”

FEELING BUMMED? TRY THIS: Danielle Lewandowski , Youth: “Go on a walk or craft!” Ronnie Young, Support Services: “Doing yard work helps keep my head in the right place. Focusing on something that brings me satisfaction like getting my gardens weed free is a positive distraction.” Rod Coleman , Golf: “I limit my news exposure to 30 minutes in the morning and then no news exposure for the rest of the day. I spend my day outside working in my

yard, cleaning and rearranging my garage and playing with my dog. If I am inside, I find a good movie on a classic movie channel or find a show on a secondary channel; i.e. Discovery, Smithsonian, History, BBC, etc. I play games on the internet, several types of solitaire, backgammon, hearts, spades, cribbage, etc. I play word games on a dictionary website. I take the necessary precautions to avoid the virus and try to keep my mind on other things.” SELF-CARE TIPS: BY TAKING CARE OF OURSELVES, WE TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER.

Self-care is any activity that we do in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. It could mean taking a 15-minute walk to stretch, painting a rock to clear your head, taking a meditation class, or perhaps enjoying a yoga session. Each activity can vary from person-to-person. What works for you?

IN CLOSING: A MESSAGE TO YOU FROM ONE OF OUR MEMBERS “I write to you as a member of the Club to ask that you pass along my thanks for the wonderful job that the staff and administrators are doing during these difficult times. The newsletters, videos, menus, classes and activities are well thought out, very inventive and fun for all ages. I love receiving them! We can all use a little extra laughter each day and Tom's Easter message video sure made me smile. I am so proud and ever grateful for this group of employees who do such a fine job. Many thanks and when this is all over I'm ready to throw a party over there to celebrate our families and friendships!” xoxo, Carroll Keiger HOPE AND STRENGTH! We are with you! “At the end of the day all you need is hope and strength…hope that it will get better and strength to hold on until it does.”
