Coping with COVID-19
Updated: Apr 24, 2020
An invisible virus has impacted the entire world and how we are living our lives. I know many of you are stressed and fearful and at times agitated and annoyed at our current situation. I find that the best antidote to fear is knowledge. At a time when many feel they are most hopeless, knowledge is power. One of the best ways to feel powerful is to know the facts, gain information, pray, and have faith that God is going to turn things around for our good.
We must keep ourselves, our families, and our communities protected from COVID-19 (coronavirus) We have to change the way we think and behave. We have had to adapt to everything around us being closed such as schools, gyms, salons, and churches just to name a few. An outbreak has occurred, but I firmly believe that we will emerge from this even stronger because God is doing something new in the atmosphere amid his people.
With the spring in full bloom across most of the USA, many people are ready to move about and socialize with their friends and family. However, it is so important to stay home, stay safe and adhere to the guidance of social distancing, handwashing, and face-covering from the CDC.
In closing, find ways to lift your spirits by taking a break from the news and social media, take a walk, read a book, utilize your creativity, or connect with family and friends virtually and remain steadfast as public health professionals make important strides to stop the spread of COVID-19.
MAINTAIN YOUR FOCUS!
