COVID Coop Up: Turn Worry into Quality Time, Tip #2

tips to promote sel Mar 18, 2020

How are you doing? Even though it's only been a couple of days, a lot has happened since our last post. Cities are sheltering-in-place, countries are closing their borders, and panic-buying is leading to limit restrictions at stores nationwide. As humans, seeing worry and panic leads us to question if we should be feeling worried too. It's a survival thing that is hard-wired and it's there to protect us. BUT, what if this instinct isn't serving us right now? What should we do? One idea - Focus on what we can control and flex our resourcefulness muscles.

In our last post, we encouraged you to make a schedule. Our hope was that keeping a routine and some consistency brought you some peace and comfort. Today, let's try something different...

Tip #2: Make a Video about COVID-19

Yup, you read that right. With your kiddo(s), make a fun video about how to proactively deal with COVID-19. I wish we could take credit for this idea, but people are already doing it. This dad and daughter made a blues song, Vietnam made this very catchy hand washing song, and pets are even getting involved by making their very own PSAs. These are such cool ways to feel empowered instead of worried. Focus on what you can control. Now, go slay it!
