    Instead of focusing on all of things we cannot do, I have found it incredibly helpful to focus on the small things I can do. Spend time with my husband, take an extra long dog walk, or – perhaps!! – even organize the pantry in the spare time. Limiting my news exposure and focusing on ways to serve others also helps my peace of mind. We still have so much to be thankful for and a forced slow down may not be the worst thing!

    Try to limit your time reading about the virus online. While it’s good to stay up to date on the current news and know what’s going on around you, it can be easy to obsess and spend way too much time reading scary stories online. So, take a breath and take time to focus on something else.

    I like to take breaks from too much news or social media and do something enjoyable – go for a walk, bake something, yoga, or even just a few deep breaths.
