I know times are hard for most and uncertain for us all, but here’s what I’ve been doing to keep me sane!
4.watching the same Netflix shows over and over(brings me comfort)
5. Everyday I start with the mantra “I’m grateful, I’m thankful, I’m blessed” it helps to put things into perspective.
I know things suck right now and everything is closed and people are dying rapidly, but we have to remember to follow what the surgeon general is telling us and to stay inside and wash it hands!! If everyone follows he rules set in place this will be over much sooner. It blows my mind how some governors aren’t taking this serious and letting people go out and crowd places. This will never be over if everyone doesn’t all come together.
We are living in scary uncertain times. Two weeks ago I was going into spring break after taking my exams and planning two vacations for April. Now both of those have been cancelled and my college has transferred all classes online. The future seems uncertain and so far away as we’ve been ordered to stay inside and keep at least 6 ft between us. In the light of what seems like “the end of the world” I’ve decided to compile a corona virus list. Aka things to do while you’re at home in between work or school so you don’t go stir crazy.
1. Netflix. Hulu or Disney plus! Catch up on all your shows you’ve been to busy to watch and or start new ones.
2.workout. Now gyms and such might be closed but you can go for walks and or go running outside.
3.which brings us to number 3 make sure and get some sunlight!!! It’s very important to get some vitamin D especially if you’re suffering from anxiety or depression! Don’t forget to soak up some sun. Even if you’re just sitting on your porch.
4.pray/meditate. You don’t have to be super religious to pray. You can pray to the Universe and just ask for guidance. And meditation will help you calm any worry’s or stress this situation has undoubtedly put on you.
5. Read . Finish that book you started years ago or start a new one.
6. Start baking! What better way than to start up a tasty hobby. It can be fun to involve the kids too.
7.have random dance parties! Also great to include the kids!! It will really lift your spirits!
8. Play board games! Another fun way to just relax and bring the family together for some innocent fun.
9. Stay positive! I know this seems hard now a days and the media is nothing but bad news lately. But nothing bad ever came out staying positive .
Today our black artist spotlight is on miss Anna Diop. Anna plays starfire on the hit Dc web series- Teen Titans!! She faced a lot of racism and ignorance for portraying starfire, fanboys were not happy about a black chocolate actress playing a fictional character. Which in the cartoon she’s purple or grey…. so I don’t know what the problem is. For what I can tell they have seem to accepted her now as starfire, as they see she’s not going anywhere and her cast stand by her and support her fully!!
The and only- MISS Naomi Campbell! One of the first black supermodels who paved the way for models today. She knowns for being a ” bitch” , but I’ve come to know most women who people call a bitch are just women you can’t control and who are strong as hell and have honest opinions! They don’t sugarcoat anything. So hey be a bitch Naomi because you’re THAT bitch. And you are FIERCE!
Miss China Ann mclain! Actress, singer, and dancer China was one of the black kids that could ACTUALLY do it all on Disney. So much so she had her own tv show for 3 seasons. And now she’s on the hit groundbreaking show” Black Lighting ” which is all about BLACK SUPERHEROS! We in there✊🏾 she recently cut her hair over the summer and has been living her best life.
Today I’m spotlighting miss LIZZO! You’d have to be living under a rock to not know who she is at this point. She’s a super body confident singer with even bigger vocals to match! Did I mention she can play the flute and twerk at the same time?! BLACK GIRL MAGIC.
