    COVID-19 At Home Resources for Students

    I realized today when I was engaging in some of the routines I have created at home for my self-care and health that many of you may need help as well. Though I am not willing to lead any activities myself because I need boundaries, I do want to share with you all some of the resources that help me daily:

    • Free yoga at home classes: Doyogawithme.com

    • Free online meditation: Click here

    • Netflix Party where you can watch a movie as a group: Click here

    • The HouseParty app where you can hang out virtually and play mediocre games: HouseParty

    • If you have a little money, I have been doing yoga two-three times a week with my friend Elizabeth Barnett who was in my musical theatre studio with me at NYU. They are an incredible teacher and they are doing "Noon Zoom" every day but Sunday. You have to get a Zoom account and remember that the class is at 11am and not noon for central time. Also, they offer a sliding scale of $7-$22 per class, but they always invite anyone to participate even if you cannot pay. I am paying of course, because I want to support them. All the deets are on their IG: Elizabeth Barnett  (It would be fun to do yoga together sometime :))

    • My neighborhood is doing an art gallery walk where people will put the art they own (or create) in their front windows so when people take a walk for fresh air, it is like going to a museum, which are all closed. This idea was not mine, but it is brilliant and I wanted to share. Now is a great time for events like this. Take intiative. It will make you feel better I promise.

    • Don't lay on the couch the whole day unless you are sick. It will drain your energy and make you feel worse. Get up and walk around your house, the block, or do ANYTHING (except DON'T GO OUT INTO PUBLIC NEAR PEOPLE. :))

    • Lastly, you all are used to hanging out with eachother for hours every day at school. Organize virtual hangouts so you can get that back. There is no reason why you cannot have a lunch date with 30-40 people daily if you want to or need to. People are feeling isolated and those people who already deal with mental illness or health issues need extra love now. Reach out to each other.
