Raise your hand if you are D-O-N-E with the news?! Raise your hand if you are D-O-N-E with this “c” word virus that is going around?! Raise your hand if you need ways to distract yourself during these crazy times?! Then THIS is the blog post for you.
Throughout this week, we have entered uncharted territories. Schools have moved online, parents have started homeschooling, restaurants are not serving in-house, hospitals are busier than ever, and we are told to keep our distance. This has all been hard to navigate and I know it’s been very overwhelming.
Wednesday morning I came to the realization that most of the worries and anxieties that I–and others–are facing, are against our control. I knew I had to do SOMETHING when I had to turn off my favorite TV show–the Today Show. They had their 12395827240 segment on the Coronavirus. I thought to myself “What more is there to say?!”. The media was consuming me and it was not helping me feel any better.
Although this fear is understandable, it does not do any good to worry. After turning off the Today Show, I instantly received an email notification from K-Love. They were sending me my daily verse. This was the verse:
God was sending me a sign to not worry. HE is the only one who can control what is happening right now… and He is in control. God was literally telling me that when I put my trust in Him, I won’t feel so in the dark. I’ll see the light and realize that everything is going to be ok.
Right then and there I started making a list of ways I can distract myself from all this craziness. I wanted to share it with you all so that when the going gets tough, you too can find a way to distract yourself too. I created a Shareable Google Document where you too can add ideas of how you like to draw away from this virus talk while you’re staying at home. My goal is for this to be a working document that can be shared for everyone. Be as creative as you would like to be on the document. I am attaching a video on my slide to teach you how to add your own ideas without erasing others. Do not be afraid to be the first person to add to the slide:)
We are all #BetterTogether! We are all #InThisTogether! One positive that I have witnessed and experienced during this time is that families, friends, neighbors, and communities are finding new ways to be there for each other and that has made me happy:)
That’s all for now folks! Stay healthy and stay safe ❤
