Dear friends, please seriously consider switching to a physical and emotional survival mode for a while: increase your own immune response ability and decrease danger to others.

Any exercise, breathing techniques, ventilating well, meditation, minimizing alcohol and smoking, sleeping enough, sunlight, herbs and teas like hibiscus, choosing fresh and simple foods over sugary grease, kindness over anger, appreciating beauty - all are good old things.

I am telling it to myself too, after a time of preparation to personal losses.

In addition to 2-yard distance and strict hygiene, cotton over your face can give some partial (~50%) protection from virus-loaded droplets in public. Loss of sense of smell or taste could be a symptom. SARS-2 (#COVID19) can leave us with holes in our lungs, and in some places you won't be even helped in a crisis.

Our health, attention, and energy are precious, you are a wonderful being, important to many others, and to me.

Stay well, free, and ready.

Love, virtual hugs, Lena
