Ahh Thanksgiving. Family, turkey, mashed potatoes, pie, and football are some of the traditions American’s look forward to enjoying every year. Unfortunately, COVID-19 is still present and many areas are seeing a spike in cases. Things are going to be different this year. Especially for those who are used to travelling far to visit loved ones. The CDC states that Thanksgiving travel increases the chances of getting and spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. Not to mention if you are travelling from a hot-spot state, you may need to quarantine before or after travelling.

Family gatherings may be putting loved ones at risk this year, especially grandparents and elder relatives. If you must travel, the CDC insists that you must avoid these activities in order to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. These activities include:

Traditional activities on Halloween are fun and festive, however some traditions can increase the exposure to spreading COVID-19 and other viruses. However, Halloween should not be put on hold because of COVID-19! We can still celebrate and have a spooky time with friends and family while promoting healthy habits. In fact, safety measures such as wearing a mask, social distancing, and washing hands can be easily incorporated into festivities.

Trick- or- Treating

Trick-or-treating is one of the best parts of Halloween. Seeing your kids get all dressed up and excited when they get their favorite treats is heartwarming. And sneaking some of the kid’s candy is always something to look forward too!

Establish Me Time

COVID-19 is a difficult time for everyone. One way to establish a sense of normalcy and certainty is to establish consistent weekly and daily routines. With school and work being online, the gym closed, and other everyday activities being altered, having a routine will make us feel a little more sane during these crazy times.

Experts day that keeping a routine- either your old one before COVID-19 or a new one- is an important part in maintaining mental and physical health.  Some people may view quarantine as a vacation or a retreat. Others may see the stay at home orders as a way to get organized, get ahead, or acquire a new skill. It’s important to note how we want to spend our time during this unique situation. Ask yourself: “After this is over, what do I want accomplished or have experienced?” Build your routine around these goals in mind.

A routine does not mean you have to do everything at the same time according to a strict schedule. While that may help some people, it is also a good idea for others to have a check list or to-do list with tasks they would like to accomplish in the day. This includes downtime, exercise, work, and self care!
