Let’s do more than wait and hope

There are important things we can do to help slow the spread of the novel Coronavirus / COVID-19.  Shelter in place. Wear masks. Practice social-distancing. Minimize unnecessary trips. Etc. All of them are important. We should follow them.

But why only passive advice?

These are things not to do.

What can we DO?

Where is the advice on exercise?

Where is the advice on nutrition?

Where is the advice on sleep?

Where is the advice on smoking?

Where is the advice on emotional well-being?

Where is the advice on screen-time?

The politicians want us docile. I would prefer to DO SOMETHING to make a difference.

That is why the applause for hospital workers has been huge – they deserve it – but for many people, that’s the biggest ACTIVE thing they can do.

We need more. We need to be involved.

Ask the reporters. Ask the politicians. Ask the departments of health. Ask the public health professionals. Ask the doctors. Ask the researchers.

Let’s do more than wait and hope.
