How do you decide what’s right for you? Las Vegas lifted some restriction a week ago. California lifted some this weekend. People have been going stir crazy…
I know I was one of the first to get my hair done the Saturday my salon opened. However I’d already purchased a Groupon before the lockdown. We met a friend for dinner. I still am not comfortable shopping or going into large crowds.
This weekend we made a road trip from Vegas to Sacramento. We wiped things down, wore masks, washed our hands and had sanitizer. We brought our food with us, so as to minimize our stops. My husband is still ready to get out and do things more than me. I am high risk with asthma and other autoimmune things going on.
So how do you decide what’s right for you? I say do whatever makes you feel comfortable. If you aren’t comfortable in any way wait, don’t let others pressure you.
I do encourage everyone to get some fresh air if it’s possible. Take time to breathe and soak up some vitamins from the sun. You don’t have to expose yourself to others to poke your head out your door. If you can’t, maybe just open a window.
I hope that things can one day get back to normal. In the meantime stay safe. Wear a mask when necessary and wash your hands. I am making plans to wear gloves like ladies used to do in places that sanitary practices may be impractical and stocking up on washable masks to keep me safe.
A nurse talked me through a panic attack about how to breathe with my mask at the salon. He said to breathe normal. Most people breathe to shallow. Every once in awhile push all the air out of your lungs and then resume breathing normal! This really helped me continue wearing my mask for the duration of the time. I hope it helps you.
Love, Peace and Light! Rita
