Exercise for your brain

As the coronavirus impacts our lives, we need ways to care for ourselves and one another. Whether you are well-practiced in staying in, or making lots of changes to your daily life, the pandemic brings up many emotions. It is also a critical time to care for our nervous systems. In doing so, we strengthen our minds, bodies, and particularly our immune systems.

Write a letter. In the age of text messages and FaceTime, we don’t write out our feelings in long form. Get out some nice paper and spread some love to a friend or family member.

Call a friend. If you’re usually a text person, pick up the phone or video call a faraway friend. The extra connection really makes you feel closer.
