It’s hard to escape news on the Coronavirus and get sucked in by the latest updates. We have gone into self-quarantine, canceled events, canceled travel, work from home, look suspiciously at anyone who sneezes or coughs. When I sneeze, I look up coronavirus symptoms on Google. Is it like Ebola, Zika virus, Parainfluenza, h1n1 virus?

It is a viral infection and an airborne disease that we need to take serious precautions. Social distancing is the number 1 thing we ALL need to do right now. But we also have to prevent social isolation. Many people are suffering from anxiety, depression, fear. And social isolation can exacerbate that feeling.

I share a few tips that might be helpful to you as we all navigate this new normal (for now). We need to come together as a community and not tear each other down and get all crazytown. Let’s take a deep breath, call a friend, relative or neighbor and find something fun to talk about that has nothing to do with COVID-19.

Come and be social with us!
