How I’m Keeping Up a Healthy Routine While Social Distancing

Listen, I try to be a calm, optimistic source of strength for my friends and family, especially because a lot of them look to me for health and wellness advice. But right now I must be extremely candid: I’m super f*cking anxious. My anxiety has perhaps never been at this level, and I’ve had dissociative panic attacks in the past so . . .

Now that I’m only leaving home for essentials, I’m spending a lot of time alone with my thoughts (and my dog). So how am I staying healthy — mentally and physically? I’ve made myself a little plan, and of course I’m going to share it with all of you. Because mental and emotional wellness is a foundation for physical health (Can you really have one without the other?), I’m ensuring that my at-home health program focuses on a strong mind and body.

I’ve been gathering as many resources as I can from my doctors, my own research and investigation, and tips from friends to come up with the best possible at-home program for myself; hopefully these things I’ve learned along the way will benefit you, too.

And remember: even though I’m gearing this toward anxiety relief and healthy living, it’s OK to just feel your feelings and be anxious and couch-ridden, too. This is a strange time, and stress will come in waves. Give yourself grace. But when you’re ready to get back into your routine and feel good, check some of this stuff out.
