Tips to Stay Sane While Social Distancing and Self Quarantining

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world is a different place than it was just a few weeks ago. For many, one of the most jarring changes is the switch from being constantly on the go to practicing social distancing and honoring the stay at home mandate set forth by the government. Here in Ohio, that means restricting time out of the home to only essential business and errands. 

This sudden halt to our daily lives and increased time spent inside can have a significant impact on the mind, body and spirit. We are feeling the void of things we often take for granted, such as regular exposure to the sun, which impacts bone and muscle health, mood regulation and sleep quality. This combined with a lack of human interaction, the boredom of being cooped up and the anxiety of dealing with other various impacts of this pandemic, can create a frightening cocktail of emotions.

Here are a few suggestions for using your time in a way that can benefit you and those close to you (well, preferably 6 feet away)!


The Sports Void is Real

As Sports Medicine providers, our physicians spend a great deal of time taking care of high school athletes, weekend warriors, and professional athletes. With the current state of sports, our physicians are feeling an emptiness that many of our athletes and sports enthusiasts are feeling as well.

The Heart of the Matter

February marks American Heart Month, and allows an opportunity to reflect on the heart healthy choices we are currently making and reevaluate some of the things we can do better, such as eating right, getting enough exercise and effectively managing stress.

 Aside from these important habits, another aspect of heart health is familiarizing yourself with Sudden Cardiac Arrest, a condition that has gained more attention over the last few years, even among youth athletes and those who wouldn’t normally consider themselves at risk for heart problems.
