Hi everyone,

Hope you are keeping well. Who would have ever thought that we would be in this situation?!

It feels like a movie (have you seen Contagion? It is exactly this!).

The stress and anxiety sometimes gets to me, but overall I am feeling calm and know that this will eventually pass. It’s been a good time to reflect on life and appreciate what we have.

I’ve had a post-it note up on my wall forever, now it applies more than ever:

ACTION IS THE ANTIDOTE FOR ANXIETY

That anxiety, stress and fear we are feeling is in our bodies. We need to get it out. I find physical movement is the best way. Make sure you are not holding it in, breath and move!

I find that going for bike rides, listening to upbeat music, dancing and of course exercising does wonders. Always makes me feel better!

Getting outside is also important, getting fresh air and a different perspective. We have been so lucky with amazing weather and our city has never been more beautiful, we are so lucky to live here.

Teaching my classes and seeing your faces has also been so grounding. Thank you for joining me. It’s been a huge learning curve, it’s wonderful to learn new things.

Helping others is another way to take action. Here are 3 things you can do to help right now:

1) Give Blood
Given the situation, blood donation is very low. Consider donating if you qualify.

2) Assist Seniors
This website connects you with seniors who need assistance. Things you can do range from cooking, delivering food, shopping for groceries, driving to appointments or a phone visit.

3) Help Medical Professionals
Food delivery services are oversubscribed. Front-line medical professionals do not want to go inside grocery stores and expose the public. Volunteers are matched with a medical professional in their neighbourhood by postal code to help with delivery.
