Catch up with a long-distance friend or family member with a phone call or Skype session. Your loved one will be touched that you thought to call, and the gab session will boost your spirits, especially if you’re feeling lonely. These are 24 little ways to be a true friend.

Write a letter

As meaningful as a phone call or “I miss you” email is, a handwritten letter is an even more special surprise. Take your time crafting a thoughtful about how much that person means to you, and slip it into the mailbox to make someone’s day. Check out these things your mail carrier won’t tell you.

Rearrange the furniture

Rethinking your room’s setup can give your home a fresh look without spending a dime. If large pieces of furniture are too much of a hassle, mix up your knick-knacks or organize your shelves. You’ll bust boredom for the day, and break out of a rut from your same old arrangement. Start with these interior designer tricks for styling bookshelves.

Organize one small space

When cleaning the house sounds too boring or overwhelming, pick one spot that could use some TLC and go to work. Focus on your junk drawer, workbag, or desk. It won’t take long, but you’ll feel so much less scattered—and might find yourself wanting to keep the momentum going with another organizing project. Here are other things organized people do on the weekend.

 

Have a private dance party

Make a playlist of your favorite songs—you know, the ones you can never resist dancing to—and get moving. It’s an equipment-free workout that’s way too fun to feel like exercise. Plus, you could have a boost in mental health—one Australian study found that a tango class could reduce depression and stress in people with depression.

Play dress-up

Take a hard look in your closet and come up with new ways to pair pieces together. Come up with some creative combos, and you’ll be sure to score compliments. Plus, you’ll get more use out of the clothes you already own by coming up with new outfits. These tricks can help you revamp your wardrobe in just one weekend.

Cook a gourmet dinner

Takeout and 30-minute meals might be your go-to during the week when you’re too burnt out to spend time at the stove, but having a free day will give you the chance to take your time with a more involved recipe. If you didn’t get a chance to pick up fancy ingredients, dig around in your cupboard for shelf-stable foods you’ve had sitting around, and turn them into a swanky three-course meal. Go all out by setting the table with your good silverware and china.

Do meal prep

Maybe spending a long time on a certain meal isn’t your thing. In that case, cut down the cooking time for future meals by prepping ingredients now that you have some extra time on your hands. Wash and chop vegetables you’ll use throughout the week, or throw together entire recipes that you can freeze for later. Check out these other brilliant cooking shortcuts.

Bake a batch of cookies

Whipping together a batch of your favorite baked goods is fun, and you’ll get a chance to enjoy the tasty products of your creation. Save half for a friend, and you’ll score some major brownie points (pun intended).

Pamper yourself

Fill your tub with warm water and bubbles, and settle in for a relaxing soak. Make it even better by lighting candles and playing your favorite soft tunes, or smear your face with a homemade facial mask. Finish with one of these self-massage tricks.

Even in the midst of despair may you feel that you are being lifted up on wings of hope..

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – CORONAVIRUS:

From a member of the Stanford University Hospital Board. This is their feedback for now on the Coronavirus:

 

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – CORONAVIRUS:

  1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold.
  2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.
  3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.
  4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
  5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.
  6. On fabric, it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.
  7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.
  8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes,  pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
  9. You should also gargle as prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
  10. Can't emphasize enough - drink plenty of water!

 

THE SYMPTOMS:

  1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days.
  2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.
  3. With pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
  4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.

Serious excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases: Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry.

Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach.

Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the viruses. If you don't drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That's very dangerous.

 

Please send and share this with family and friends. The new Coronavirus may not show signs of infection for many days. How can one know if he/she is infected? By the time they have a fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% Fibrosis and it's too late (Fibrosis is not reversible).

 

Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds.

If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection.

In critical times, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air.
