I hope you are all doing well and staying home. I wanted to make this post about you and to share tips with you that I have read or done while staying home. Even if you are still working, do spend the time you would be out and about, to do something for yourself.
Here are some things that I am doing and some things that I have gotten from others that have helped my stress and made life easier. Read what you are interested in and make sure you read what I am doing for self-care.
Stress can cause major health problems, so get a cup of coffee or tea, sit back and enjoy this post. We all need to do a little self-care slow down and also, give the earth a break. I am staying home and not spending as much money so that is a good thing.

5 self-care things I am doing while staying home.
I work out 3 to 4 times a week. I split my body parts up so work on 2 to 3 muscle groups at a time.
Meditation and qigong
I have been doing meditation with one of the masters where I studied Qi Gong. He offered them free for two weeks and they have been amazing. I will share it with you all soon.
Soak in the tub using Epson salts, essential oils, and a body brush
I love soaking in the tub when its cold outside. Now I have a little more time to spend I do some work on myself that I should do all the time.
We need to sweat every day. It’s a great way to detox and since I don’t do a lot of high-intensity cardio the sauna is a great way for me to sweat and detox. I am very grateful to have one, especially while staying home.
Learning with my extra time staying-in
I am Studying Sound Healing to go with my Medical Qi Qong work. Not that I am musically gifted but I do have an American flute, 3 drums a dumbek, jimbee, and a hand drum, I have tuning forks (I have studied with another company using them) and a Tibetan bowel. So I guess this workshop was a good choice and now you know a little more about me. When I start studying something I go all out. HEHE ????.
Things you can start doing now to help save the earth
Take shorter showers. Turn off the water while brushing your teeth. Stop drinking bottled water, buy a water filter. You will save a lot of money and reduce plastic waste.
Bike, walk or take a bus
This will help reduce greenhouse gases and you will burn more calories. The cities that do the most walking like New York and Chicago have less overweight people.
Reduce waste and recycle
Have a container in your house just for recycling. Recycle cans, bottles, and paper. (If an office building of 7,000 workers recycled all of its office paper waste for a year, it would be the equivalent of taking almost 400 cars off the road.) Recycle your clothes, donate them or sell them online for extra cash. Use reusable bags and don’t use paper plates and disposable silverware.
I have a small container that I keep in the house to put my compost veggies and fruit scraps in, and when it is full I take it out to my compost. In 2015, (the last year figures were available) Americans generated 262.4 million tons (238 metric tons) of trash. Only 23.4 million tons (21.2 metric tons) of that was composted. Compost makes great fertilizer.
