ENJOY AT HOME ound Blues

Often, feelings of anxiety come from our contemplations about the future, points in time for which we have no information except speculation. Adopting a meditation habit can help you return to the present and let go of negative thoughts. Check out apps like Calm or Headspace to get started. Some meditation studios are also offering livestreaming classes through Facebook or Instagram during this time. EXERCISE Not going to the gym doesn’t mean you have to stop moving. Connect with coworkers and friends virtually and do a daily pushup and lunge challenge. Look for workouts available through YouTube or online classes. Your local gym may be offering virtual workouts, which can also be a great way to continue to support small businesses. READ AND WATCH You know that running list of books you’ve always wanted to tackle but just haven’t found the time for? This may be your perfect opportunity. Use your library’s e-book app, like Libby, to check out books or turn to online bookstores, like Kindle. Consider Pulitzer Prize-winning books like “The Underground Railroad” by Colson Whitehead, “The Shipping News” by Annie Proulx, or “The Overstory” by Richard Powers. When you’re looking for something to stream, support one of your local artists. With most gigs getting canceled, watching a comedian’s stand-up special and donating to their GoFundMe or purchasing a song from a musician can be a blessing — for you and them. Turning to positive outlets like meditation, exercise, and reading will help you stay mentally and physically well during this time. Don’t forget to share what you find helpful with your friends, family, and coworkers.
