Look to Trustworthy News Sources for COVID-19 Updates

Making your home environment a healthy, happy and relaxing one relies on it being a mentally calm space too. Studies have shown that minimizing your stress levels has a direct effect on your immune system, so boost your defense system’s resilience by taking steps to stay cool, calm and collected. For us, this means being selective about the sources of the information we’re bringing into our space. 

This “novel” Coronavirus is just that... brand new. This is totally unchartered territory for everyone, including the experts. As a result of this, there’s a lot that we don’t know about this virus yet- but having said that, there is plenty we do already know about it.

With the combined resources of health professionals and organizations across the globe dedicating their research to discovering how to beat this thing, new information is emerging every minute. 

As tempting as it may be to obsessively troll social media for intel on these new developments, there’s really only a few authorities that have any good business commenting on what we should do. 

Refer to trusted medical organizations to get the latest updates, and check back often. You’ll see that their advice is direct, no-nonsense and informative. Without the need to sensationalize or fear-monger to leverage media coverage for their own gain, you’ll be able to refer to these outlets as a solid source of proper information…  So you can be proactive, ratchet down your anxiety levels a couple of notches, and separate your heightened emotions surrounding the fear of this virus from the actual facts you need to know. 

Visit these trusted sources for up-to-the-minute information on protocols for disinfecting and cleaning: 

Staying mentally strong, and keeping our immune systems in optimum shape is our best line of defense against Coronavirus. As we all know, eating unhealthy food is bad for our bodies, and in the same vein... Remember that all things we consume have a direct correlation on our bodies and minds- including the news.

Keep calm and carry on without fear. We'll get through this.
