Learn new technology.
Facetime, Skype, Zoom, Facebook, Twitter, and email are only a few technologies that exist to help you talk with family and friends. Doing the basics is easy. But if setting up an account feels daunting, ask a friend, neighbor, grandchild, niece or nephew for help.
Stay active in the community from home.
Many organizations — faith-based groups, nonprofits, arts and cultural organizations, parks and botanical gardens to name a few - are now offering virtual tours, events and programs to get you out and about without leaving your home.
Watch the news, but keep it reasonable.
Watch a news update in the morning, then check in again in the evening. Don’t stay with it for long periods of time — 30 minutes or an hour is plenty to stay in touch with news about COVID-19. Watching the 24/7 news channels all day, where typically not much changes hour by hour, can help create needless anxiety.
Reach out to family and friends.
Stay in touch with family and friends, even people you haven’t seen in awhile. The thoughtful gesture will be much appreciated. After all, we’re in this together.
And, if you do go out: When you return home, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly with soap for at least 20 seconds, or as long as it takes you to hum two rounds of “Happy Birthday.” Check out our “Keep Calm and Keep On Washing Your Hands” post for proper techniques.
