What I’m observing in this new, weird reality of COVID-19 and all of its annoying consequences, is how much more health-conscious we’ve all become. And not just an awareness of our kids health, but our own health as well. That’s a good thing. I’m observing that the neighborhood has a new energy to it. I see families taking walks together. I see parents and kids riding their bikes together. I see grown folks jogging alone or jogging in small groups. I’m not used to seeing that in my hood. Well, let me rephrase that. It’s rare to see this much physical activity in my community, especially at this time of the year. And I have to say, families, good for you! Keep it moving and keep up the good work! I’m also noticing the efforts to change eating habits; what we are eating- moving towards a healthier eating lifestyle. And yet, we struggle with overeating and eating junk while we are sheltering-in-place because the stress of it all propels us to indulge in comfort foods. It’s ok, we have a lot going on right now. Mama said there would be days like this… We fall down and we get back up! That’s the lesson we teach our children, right?
