Corona Virus Measures
As most of you probably know, Dallas County issued a Declaration last night in regards to the Corona Virus. You can read all of their recommendations here. You can learn more about social distancing to help limit the spread here.
Steps I am personally taking to ensure the health of my students, self, and family:
- Wash hands before leaving the location I was at and upon arrival at the new location
- Not providing props for group classes, and sanitizing all props for private client use
- Limiting outings, social gatherings, and being in groups of 10 or more people
- Checking my temperature every day to make sure I don’t have any signs of a fever
- Along with following the recommendations from CDC
As most of you know, my husband is in End-Stage Renal Disease, which means his kidneys are failing, so I’m taking this very seriously so as to not bring home anything that can impact his compromised immune system.
Class Changes: -Class for Monday 3/16 at First United Methodist has been canceled, the Church is closed for the week.
-The Wednesday 3/18 class has been moved from the Rec Center to a private residence and will be on 3/17 at 6:30 as of now.
-Private sessions will continue as scheduled for now.
I am happy to offer virtual classes and private sessions to anyone who is interested!
How We Can Support Each Other
Anxiety and panic are running high right now. Let’s remember to breathe, inhale for a count of 4-6, exhale for a count of 4-6.
How we can support our small business owners: as people practice social distancing, small business owners will be heavily impacted! Think of buying gift cards to support them financially during this time, and plan to visit as soon as you are able! This applies to restaurants, therapists, massage therapists, anyone who you see on a monthly or more basis who doesn’t have a corporation behind their paycheck. (This includes personal trainers, yoga teachers and the like too!)
How we can support each other: Take time to call friends, relatives, and those who you would normally see. Check on those who are in the at-risk populations, see if there is something you can do to support them: walk a dog, help with an errand, deliver something to them to eat, play or read to keep them occupied during social distancing. Check on the people in your life who deal with depression and anxiety, these are tough times. Check on the people who are caregivers in your life, I can tell you personally, this is an overwhelming time for sure!
How you can support yourself: Make sure to breathe, stay well hydrated, eat well, rest as much as possible. Find ways to move your body during the day. Use this time to relax, breathe, indulge in self-care, enjoy a hobby or something! Don’t go places if you’re not feeling well and stay healthy!
