7 Ways to Reduce Stress during Quarantine

1. Limit News Consumption
Know the facts, but don’t overwatch the news and create more anxiety.
2. Practice Calming Techniques
Whether this is reading, watching your favorite TV show, or taking a bath, be sure to take time for yourself to relax. 
3. Move Your Body
Exercise is a great way to release tension in your body and take your mind off of things for a while. 
4. Connect With Loved Ones
Schedule a time to call, text, email, or video call a friend or family member. 
5. Find Activities That Bring Joy
Whether that’s listening to music or finishing a puzzle, find an activity that you enjoy. There are many online options for different activities, such as visiting a museum online or listening to a virtual concert. 
6. Get Stuff Done
Marking something off your to-do list or finally starting a hobby that you haven’t had time for in the past, will give you a sense of accomplishment and help take your mind off of other things. 
7. Find Ways to Laugh
Whether that’s watching a funny movie or TV show, or calling a friend that always knows how to make you smile, find things that make you laugh. They say laughter is the best medicine, after all.

I am an author, speaker, caregiver, and Grammy. The latter is by far the most fun! Having been a primary caregiver 3x, I realized so many lessons were learned too late to benefit my Dad who passed of Parkinson's Disease. I resolved to write a book to make life easier and safer for other caregivers that would get them ideas, inspiration, and lessons learned. It's called "Caregiving: How To Hold On While Letting Go" available on Amazon. I am a Certified Caregiver Consultant and Advocate as well as a Community Educator for the Alzheimer's Assoc. and Founder of The PurpleVine LLC

I want to know more caregiving tips, and resources, plus get FREE gifts!
