While we’re all sheltering in place, there are some basic necessities we just shouldn’t go without... plus a few items that are nice to have on hand to make the lockdown experience a smooth (and even pleasant!) one.
We can be assured that the supply chain for grocery stores isn’t going to screech to a grinding halt, as suppliers have amped up their operations in response to increased demand. Having said that, hoarding and panic buying can cause problems in getting some of the basics we need. We can all do our bit by responsibly stocking up on essentials without adding to the problem, and depriving others like the elderly of basics they are in need of. Risk communications experts have recommended buying enough non-perishable food to last your household through a few weeks of social distancing at home, but not enough to ride out the apocalypse. You should plan accordingly for a few interruptions and inconveniences, but none of us need to worry about a famine.
Putting a bit of planning into your weeks ahead will make a world of difference to flattening the curve, and helping the COVID-19 pandemic stabilize and be over sooner rather than later.
Some steps you can take to contribute in slowing the spread, and also making sure you’re well prepared in case you do get sick and can’t leave the house for a couple of weeks include:
If you can manage to grab some key items to weather these times of social distancing, with possible local supply shortages (and potentially becoming unwell), you’ll be in a good position to ride out the storm, and even find some enjoyment amidst the restrictions.
Here’s what you should be stocked up on in your house, if you haven’t already:
Before your next trip to the store or online shopping expedition, have a think about what you need to make the next few weeks of your sheltering in place a comfortable and enjoyable one. We’ve got a great chance for some self-reflection, personal development, online education and new hobbies. So let’s see the silver lining of this Coronavirus lockdown cloud, and make this time a net positive for our souls and spirits.
Stay happy and healthy,

As tempting as it may be to obsessively troll social media for intel on these new COVID-19 developments, there’s really only a few authorities that have any good business commenting on what we should do to stay safe and healthy. Be selective of the information you bring into your space by referring to trusted medical organizations to get the latest updates.

It’s wild out there right now. Visiting the grocery store has become a potentially anxiety-inducing ordeal, your pantry shelves are bare and restaurants have closed their doors to the public. But we still need to fill our bellies and make sure we’re doing it without exposing ourselves to Coronavirus. So what are the proper protocols we should be following right now?
