Every day we will be posting a new article filled with resources during this stressful time. To get these recommendations directly in your inbox, sign up to get more daily tips.
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
What a moment we are living through. For many of us, we are responsibly practicing social distancing by working from home. Others are continuing their work in the community by providing healthcare, caring for older Vermonters, and keeping essential services running. This is a scary time, but we will get through this together.
Togetherness and support is what RiseVT is all about. Right now we are not able to do our usual in-person organizing and health promotion, but we are not giving up on our communities. That’s why every day for the next several weeks RiseVT will be posting 5-7 activities, projects, updates, and reflections here on our blog and on social media to keep you healthy while we shift our lives to prevent the spread of this virus. Each day there will be new, fresh content for out-of-gym workouts, mindfulness, food and nutrition, community support, and spreading gratitude to name just a few topics we’ll be sharing.
Remember, during times of stress and strain it is even more important to pay attention to your health. When you are strong, you can be strong for others. Our goal will be doing all we can to support you.
In health and solidarity,
The RiseVT Team
We’ve got you! Here are some great resources and ideas to keep you and your family informed and going today.
- Workout Wednesday! A quick yoga sequence for your core! Take the time to get in a workout today. Try out this yoga sequence to wake up and strengthen your core. If you have kids at home get them involved!
- Engage your kids with a printable bird book. This is still a great time to get out of the house and explore. Print out this bird book and have your children draw and write down which birds they see on the walk. Alternatively, if you have a bird feeder having them draw which birds they see visiting the feeder.
- Try baking some bread! Now is a great time to get into the kitchen and make one of those recipes you just haven’t had time to try.
- Help your kids understand the virus through this comic. The virus can be scary for anyone including children. This comic can help you both learn about the virus.
- Helpful grade appropriate materials for parents and students while school is out. Now the school is closed for most students, you may be searching for resources to continue their learning. Scholastic has some great options for many grade levels.
