We’ve all been doing our part to social distance and to stay home during this critical time, and although it isn’t easy, we know it’s been helpful. Still, if you’re dreaming of the day that you can visit your favorite local businesses and you want to help them to weather this storm, there are ways to lend your support!

Stick to the Guidelines

Follow social distancing rules and local restrictions during your self-quarantine. By doing this, health officials explain you can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in your community. Another great way to slow the spread of this virus is by wearing a face mask and gloves — these actions will ensure that your community stays healthy, ultimately facilitating the move to get non-essential businesses back on the scene.    

Support Local Eateries

In many areas across North America, restaurants and cafes are still limiting their offerings to pick-up and delivery. If you’re tapped out on meal planning, cooking and cleaning, consider ordering in! Not only does it give you a break from the routine, but it gives your favorite restaurant revenue.

Another idea is to buy e-gift certificates and send them to your friends, family and clients — you can send them via email or text or print them and add them to your handwritten notes! This is a great way to show them that they are in your thoughts while adding a boost to your local economy.

If your favorite restaurant is waiting it out by closing their doors, you can usually still purchase a gift certificate online for a future meal out.

Finally, if your “stay-at-home” dress code is relaxed, purchase a branded hat, t-shirt or sweatshirt from your local favorite the next time you pop by for takeout.

Support Your Local Fitness Studios

By now, you know that your gym or studio is closed. Maybe you’ve dusted off your running shoes or bike, or perhaps you’re taking several walks each day. These are great ways to stay active, but if you want to throw your local gym or fitness studio some support, consider mixing up your routine!

Thousands of gyms, studios and fitness professionals are offering online classes at a reduced rate. A quick visit to your gym’s website (or a gym you’ve wanted to try) will give you the information you need to get started.

Have you been working with a personal trainer? See if you can train virtually with FaceTime or Zoom. If you’ve been listening to “It’s a Good Life” you know that since Brian committed to FaceTime sessions with his bride Beverly’s trainer, Rico, he has been refreshed and reinvigorated to work for results.

These are certainly uncertain times. However, we can stay connected and we can support our communities so that once the coronavirus subsides, we can come back stronger than ever!
