Gentle Reminders...that we all need

  1. Get enough sleep.  Practice good sleep hygiene. Avoid cell phones or TV before bed, try to go to bed at the same time each night, make sure the room is dark and quiet enough, and practice breathing or mindfulness exercises if your thoughts are too “loud” to sleep. 

  2. Exercise regularly.  There are free exercise videos on YouTube or Go Noodle for adults and kids. 

  3. Eat healthy and drink enough water

  4. Have social contact with others, even if you can’t see them in person. You can call, video conference, or connect online.
