As we move through another week of quarantine in an effort to stem the spread of the coronavirus, I’m definitely feeling the effects of being house-bound and out of physical contact with my extended family and friends. While I’m coming to accept this new normal, I’m also experiencing a pretty consistent level of anxiety (anyone else having a hard time sleeping?).
As the Coronavirus continues to spread, many of us are facing the stark new realities that come with sheltering in place. It’s a difficult time. It’s also the perfect time to help those in our communities who are most at risk: the elderly and vulnerable and essential healthcare workers on the front lines of caring for us all. Here’s how you can help now.
When a Mindful Littles family member contacted us looking for ways lift the spirits of recovering stroke patients at the Anaheim Healthcare Center in Anaheim, California, we knew our community would want to help.
When my 8-year-old came to me with a worried look and asked if she was going to get the coronavirus, I answered her truthfully: “I don’t know, but if you or anyone else in our family does, we know how to take care of you.”
