On managing your self-isolation mental health and well-being, how are you holding up?
This is my third post on the Coronavirus epidemic. My first post was about some preventive steps. I’m sure many have already heard the same information from various media. As the situation grew worse globally, well-intentioned people were trying to share correct information.
Yesterday, I posted some links to different sites to get correct stats on the virus. I simply wanted to offer options for accurate information.
Today, I discovered this great video on managing the personal mental side of all of this. The tone of the video is calming and practical, so please watch and share. It offers alot of useful tips to help someone filter what they hear…and temper it with practicality and positivity.
Everyone deals with stress…at work, home and in our personal lives. Many people get so wound up with stress that they neglect the healthy things that should be done for themselves every day. Sleep, the right foods, and exercise are especially important. While I’ve never had a problem in these areas (especially eating), I hope these ideas will help at least one of you.
Feel free to comment on what makes you stressed, and how you dealt with it!!
At my last count, there were thirty-two regional dialects around America. That’s a lot. Maybe some phrases or words are shared between dialects, but there are still distinctive words that only locals know. I myself am from Alabama (Roll Tide!), two states below the area in the video below, and I still heard a lot of new words, except for “yall” and “yonder”.
For a little comparison (cause i ain’t that schooled in dialects, yall), I trolled around YouTube, to find a good example of my Alabama dialect so that you could see the difference between just these two regions:
Could you hear the difference? Actually, I have heard stronger accents than Maddison’s…where people talk much slowar, chewin’ thair words a little bit. Nonetheless, watching Maddison made me homesick.
How do atheists deal with tragedy? How do they grieve? What is their opinion on tragedy? How do Atheists cope, when there is no “God’s plan” to fall back on? This article offers some insight on how Atheists get a handle on misfortunate events and happenings that plague everyone’s lives.
I had actually committed myself to a bit of charity work in Singapore….in the Summer of 1992. My ship had pulled into Singapore for a two-week stay, and some of us were asked if we wanted to spend a morning with some children at a local orphanage. Several of us went and had a great morning with our new friends. If I recall, we did some painting and light renovation work, but it was still a great experience. When you have the time, try giving some time to others.
