Finding Positivity and Appropriate Activities During a Pandemic
Here we are! Just like that, it’s already June, and what a strange 2020 we have experienced thus far. The first part of 2020 has felt like an entire year in itself! COVID-19 has brought us many challenges. But challenges can bring positive change. Check out our SAFE Post-Quarantine Activities below.
As COVID-19 has left us with uncertainty and questions about what is next, there are a lot of great things that have, and can come, out of this. Here are some tips to chase away the COVID blues.
These quarantine activities assume measures are taken to follow all CDC guidelines and social distancing when in public.
- Go outside! Get some sun! Have a picnic or take a walk around the park! It’s amazing what this can do for your mental health and wellness. Not to mention, being in the sun allows your body to get the Vitamin D it desperately needs to keep you healthy! If there is one thing, we have learned from all of this, it’s that you have to take care of yourself.
- Brighten up your home! We often overlook the impact that small features play in our everyday lives. Pro tip: freshen up your home with fresh flowers!
- Laugh often! Watch a funny movie or your favorite YouTube videos. Laughter is proven to relieve physical tension and stress.
- Swap your favorite smoothie recipe with your friends! Here is our favorite (and healthy!) smoothie recipe. Pro tip: it’s easy to hide spinach in your smoothies! It makes for a healthy, nutritious drink and you can’t even taste the spinach!
RECIPE: Fruit/Spinach Smoothie (Makes for a great breakfast!)
1 cup spinach
½ cut up apple
¼ cup blueberries
2 cups of coconut water
2 tsp 100% cocoa powder
Put all the above contents in the blender, and blend! If the consistency is too thick, just add more regular water. If it’s too watery, feel free to add in some Greek yogurt until it’s the consistency that you prefer! We hope you can enjoy some of the quarantine activities and know that we are always here for you!
