We have had a tech glitch that required us to restore the website. Unfortunately, new members and content that was created today 10/22 were lost. New members will need to sign up an acct again. We are very sorry about this.
Checking in with all of you during this challenging time. I’ve been writing out daily self-care plans. Writing these have helped me stay focused on taking care of myself. Hope you are all developing your own plans.
I limit watching/reading the news to one hour. I’ve been cooking dinner much more in last 2 weeks.Every day I read a couple chapters in a book and walk. And I’ve got a jump start on outdoor projects–raking flower beds mostly. To be honest, my sleep has not been the greatest so often up at 4AM or 5AM. At least I can take a nap every day.   Of course there is more time to clean house, but so far not making that a priority. I don’t consider cleaning self-care unless things are out of control or if it’s a project that I’ve really wanted to get done!
Other helpful things I’ve been doing.
* Joined a video chat (thru Zoom) with a local Al-Anon group. It is as much a coronavirus support group as it was Al-Anon.
* My church started a Sunday service thru Zoom. They also offer online Meditation and Pastoral Care groups during the week.
* Several times Skyped with VA family. Our family also started a Marco Polo group so we can share videos with each other when the mood strikes you…that’s been fun.
While I’m sure you’ve all been bombarded with information/resources and supportive articles, I’d still like to share three that struck me the most in the last couple of weeks –
Focusing on the Positive when Life is on Hold
The Ninth Obstacle (Braver/ Wiser) …on facing challenges  (see attached)
And a good article from WebMD –  How I’m Protecting Myself from Depression During Self-Isolation
Sunny and finally warming up…time to walk.
