Speaking for myself and maybe others, this has been a really difficult time to focus.
There are so many things going on in society from the arguments about masks to the
government regulations that apply to some but not all, to the riots and destruction, and all the
information coming out about child sex trafficking.
My goal is to always help others improve their health and fitness level to have a better quality
of life. With so much distraction going on, instead of an article, I am going to make a list of
things that you can do to help improve your quality of life and/or someone else’s.
Ideas include the following:
Set some new goals.
Do more of what you love.
There will always be tough times choose to take care of yourself anyway.
Don’t hesitate to ask for help when needed.
Stop watching the news.
Get more sleep.
Spend more time with those that support and love you.
Find a creative outlet and make this an important part of your day.
Be of service to others.
Drink more water.
Adopt an animal.
Pay for someone’s meal or coffee that you don’t know.
Visit the local farmer’s market and support the local farmers.
Drop some food, toys, or bedding off at the local animal shelter.
Support the organization Operation Underground Railroad.
Vote with your money and support your local small businesses.
Check on your neighbors or neighbors’ kids if there are any that you are worried about.
Bring a friend to a workout with you.
Eat less sugar.
Meditate 10 minutes a day.
Try a new type of workout.
Take a walk.
Play your favorite music.
Dance – when is the last time you did this?
Cook more meals at home.
Eat less processed food.
Start a gratefulness journal. Give up the sugary drinks and empty liquid calories.
Make family meals around the dinner table a priority when possible.
Work on diaphragmatic breathing.
Workout hard enough to improve your fitness level.
Watch less TV.
Reduce the amount of time on social media.
Check to make sure you know who your kids are chatting with on social media.
Get outside for the fresh air and sunlight.
Call a friend.
I think now more than ever we need to take care of our health, spend time with our families and
friends, and stay connected. I hope this list may have given you some ideas for improving your
or someone else’s quality of life.
