Stay Home, Stay Safe: How to Handle a Global Pandemic

Stay Home, Stay Safe: How to Handle a Global Pandemic

It’s safe to say that the US wasn’t ready for what has happened across the country over the last few weeks. Now, with stay-at-home orders for most of the country, the severity of the situation may be starting to sink in. At The Online Drugstore, we know how important it is, now more than ever, to do everything possible to keep our bodies healthy and our immune systems strong.

Even with staying home and practicing social distancing, it’s imperative that we take active measures to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. This includes regularly washing your hands and sanitizing all surfaces and door handles. Not only are these things important for your health, but getting a good night of sleep and continuing to give your body the proper nutrients.

The Online Drugstore stands with our customers and our community as we deal with the crisis at hand. As always, you can find all of your vitamins, supplements, and over-the-counter medications at our online health store. Shop today and get everything you need delivered straight to your door, keeping you and your loved ones safe and healthy.

First and Foremost, Keep Calm and Stay Positive

Nothing has a bigger effect on your overall well-being than your state-of-mind. Stress and anxiety can make your body sick, especially because it leads to muscle tightening and trouble sleeping. During a global pandemic, panicking will do nothing to help or change your situation. The best approach to take is to stay calm and to keep a positive attitude. A good attitude can greatly impact those around you, if you happen to have your family at home with you during this time.

A few great ways to keep a calm mind and body that your online health store can offer you include:

  • Calming teas
  • Lavender essential oils
  • Calming scented candles
  • Bubble baths
  • Mood-balancing vitamins

Get a Proper Diet

It’s easy to lose your grip on healthy eating habits when you’re at home all the time and snacks are readily available. However, by eating healthfully and getting your essential nutrients every day, your body’s immune system will be strengthened and your body will be set up to fight any illness. Don’t give in to the cookies in the cupboard or the ice cream in the freezer. Not every day, anyway. Eat your fruits and vegetables, and be sure to order the vitamins and other supplements you need from The Online Drugstore to keep your body and your immune system strong.

Keep Washing, Cleaning, and Sanitizing

Just because you’ve practiced proper social distancing doesn’t mean that you don’t have to worry about cleaning and sanitizing your home or washing your hands a few extra times per day. Keeping your house clean is a great way to avoid getting sick. It’s likely to get dirty just a little bit quicker with you and your family being home all the time, but all of that extra time at home also gives you that much more time to clean.

Are you looking for activities for your kids while they are home from school? Create a chore bucket, and every time they complain about being bored, they can pick a new cleaning chore out of the bucket. This can be a great way to keep your house clean and sanitized while keeping your kids busy!

The Online Drugstore knows that it’s a stressful time for everyone, however, cleaning is also a great way to relieve some of that stress and built-up tension. Plus, you’ll feel an awesome sense of accomplishment at the end of the day after you’ve deep-cleaned your kitchen and reorganized your cupboards.

Are you looking for a few more cleaning products for your home but you don’t want to go to the grocery store? Check The Online Drugstore for cleaning products and other household items and get what you need delivered straight to your door.

Do Your Thing — At Home

You’ve probably heard all over the place that this is a great time to get things done. You’ve probably also heard that’s it’s okay to be lazy and not get anything done during this time. At The Online Drugstore, we want you to know that, as long as you’re still making your health and wellness and safety a priority, that you should do your own thing — whatever that may be. There may be days that you are feeling a spark of productivity, and there may be days that you aren’t. Whatever feels best for you — do that. Don’t let anyone else tell you what you should or shouldn’t be doing. Take care of yourself and your loved ones first. Even if that means taking a day to sit on the couch and binge-watch Netflix.

At the end of the day, it’s important to make sure that your mental health is being looked over as much as your physical health. We support strong bodies and strong minds. And we’re in this together.
