To everyone working on the front lines, thank you. To everyone at home, thank you; please keep doing what you’re doing & #stayhome
We know you’re likely exhausted from the stress of the globally evolving Coronavirus pandemic but we hope you’re able to get the sleep you need to stay healthy during these unsettling times. Long-term anxiety and stress decreases the effectiveness of your immune system and increases your risk of physical illness and mental health issues. Please hunker down with your family and stay safe.
We’ve been thinking about what we can share to help everyone rest a little easier. Below is long list of activities you and your family can do online, most of them free. From our family to yours, we hope something here makes your days a little brighter and your nights more restful.
From all of our families to all the people in yours – close by and around the world – please stay safe and healthy. We will get through this. Together.
