This is the latest term that has surfaced from this nasty COVID-19 and I’ve attached a very good article about it below. Please take a moment to read it. It has some very important information for all of us.
I’m still not in a “panic mode” but here in the United States and in my state of New Jersey, the virus is running rampant. Fear never solves anything and certainly doesn’t help anyone to stay safe and healthy. My message to all of you is to stay calm, don’t panic, and stay as socially distant from other people, places and events as you can. This won’t cure the virus but is certainly one of the most effective ways of preventing it from spreading.
“Quarantined” can be as scary a word as “COVID-19” yet I’m asking you to slow down, take a breath, and listen to what the officials are telling you to do. It’s a time to simply stay home if at all possible. Schools are being shut down so the kids will be home for a few weeks, if not months. That means KEEP THEM HOME! The same goes for adults. Stay home if you can, keep your distance from crowds, public events, and any other activities which, at this time, are important to stay away from.
The sooner we contain this virus and prevent it from spreading, the sooner life will go back to the way it used to be. Until then, make the best of your time at home. Read a book, rent a movie, take a walk outside or just sit in your backyard in the sun. Catch up with your household chores and your “to-do” list. Spend time with your family that lives with you. After all, you still have your cell phones and for most of us, the internet, to keep in touch with others.
Make this crazy, and hopefully “brief” time, an adventure. “This too shall pass” and until it does, make the best of it and don’t allow fear and anxiety to make things worse for yourself.
Stay calm. Stay informed. Stay home.
Practice “social distancing.”
It’s a good thing.
I’m keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
Wishing you love and light,
