“Rona” Life Hack #4

One of the few places that are still open right now are the doctor’s offices. It’s definitely not a place anyone wants to be, but now is the perfect time to knock out those doctor’s appointments. Dentist, general practitioner, dermatologist, chiropractor, orthodontist, podiatrist, optometrist, whatever it is, go for it now!

I have already knocked out a few of these appointments myself. There was no line, no waiting & questions asked – I was able to get in right away and take as much time as I needed with my doctor. Grant it, everyone had on masks and gloves and I even had to have my temperature taken just to enter the office, but I am glad that I got it out of the way.

For those of you with insurance, go now – medical offices are open & everyone working there is happy to help people who don’t have the Coronavirus.

“Rona” Life Hack #3

Now is the perfect time to discover new talent! Listening to music is one of my favorite pastimes. I love all forms of broadcast media – whether it’s podcasts, Spotify, Youtube, Pandora, etc. I like to explore new artist’s music and jam to the “oldies but goodies”. Quarantined at home, I’ve been listening to music like never before so it is a perfect time to update my playlist.

I challenge everyone who is reading this at home to create a NEW playlist – 1 for occasion. You should have at least one playlist for:

  1. Cleaning the house
  2. Working out
  3. Soft background music while working
  4. Cooking
  5. Washing the dishes
  6. Learning – a new language, how to videos…., etc.
  7. The news
  8. AND OF COURSE, Praise & Worship music

Listening is one of the most important senses and this is the perfect time to exercise your sense of hearing. Share your favorite playlists in the comments!

Let’s Learn! Since we’re stuck in the house for at least another week, there’s nothing wrong with a little extra learning. As we speak you can enroll in an Ivy League course for FREE. That’s right, for free! Here’s the link – https://www.classcentral.com/collection/ivy-league-moocs?page=2. Many of you may be working from home & may even be helping your kids with their homework  so now you can learn right along with them.

There are other online courses, but this one offers courses in Humanities, Business, Art & Design, Programming and even Math (ew!). So, since you’re saving some time on that daily commute and dinner has already been cooked, go ahead & crack open that PC (or Mac) and get to studying!

Corona Life Hack #1

With the Coronavirus running rampant here in the U.S., I thought I’d take this time to share some Life Hacks. So, I’m going to share 19 hacks (named after COVID-19)  over the next 19 days. Feel free to share them, like them & of course, use them!

Here’s the 1st one:

Everyone is buying canned goods right now. You’ve seen the shelves for yourself – completely empty – there are NO canned goods available.  I’m actually glad there aren’t any canned goods left, they aren’t healthy anyway – just loaded with sodium. Instead, you should be buying FRESH vegetables. I know it can be a pain having to cook them every day not to mention you run the risk of them spoiling if not cooked soon enough. But for health reasons, it’s worth it! Less sodium & more nutrients and even cheaper to buy. Nobody buys them fresh so the store will always have a full selection so Happy Eating!
