This is a fantastic graphic circulating that offers us a road map of emotions we can follow to ensure that we come out of this corona virus episode stronger physically, mentally, emotionally, both as individuals and and as a society. By employing certain habits, we give ourselves the best chance to not only survive, this time but actually thrive.
Besides the CDC guidelines of social distancing, hand washing, etc. here are some ideas to help you;
- Focus on your mental health. Decrease your intake of fear inducing news and replace it with meditation, breathing exercises, or affirmations. Bring your thoughts to the present moment and what you can control in the moment. Don’t live in the future.

- Move your body regularly. Movement energizes the body and also boosts your immunity. Try to get out in the fresh air as much as possible.
