Coping During Covid-19

The following things listed might be in your daily routine, and if they are, that is GREAT. If they are not, it’s something to consider doing. Many are out of work, or work may have slowed down, which can severely interfere with how we run our businesses. Now is not the time to stress. Though stress can’t always be completely avoided, it’s good to recognize when you are getting overwhelmed.

Take slow deep breaths, stretch, or meditate.

Observe how you are feeling and what you are thinking, without judgment. Instead of responding or reacting to those thoughts or feelings, note them, and then let them go.

Pandemic Pantry Preparation: Emergency Food Supply List

When the San Francisco earthquake of 1989 hit my mother tells me I was in my aunts yard running around as she chased me in a panic. Being a toddler you have no understanding of what a natural disaster is.

Living in California earthquakes are unpredictable but expected to happen. I’ve lived through some that have jolted me out of my sleep and others I didn’t feel at all.

Living life on the edge aka the San Andreas Fault, meant having specific foods being kept in case the “Big One” finally hit.

Here’s a helpful list of items to keep in your pantry in case of an emergency; that could be a natural disaster, personal financial change, or pandemic.

• Peanut Butter
• Whole Wheat Crackers
• Canned Meats/Seafood (Manual Can Opener)
• Dried Fruits
• Canned Fruits
• Canned Vegetables
• Oats & Oatmeal
• Dry Pasta & Pasta Sauce
• Honey
• Spices & Herbs
• Canned Soups & Stews
• Nuts & Trail Mix
• Water
