I have probably spent way too much time online, reading Facebook posts, watching the numbers on the news, trying touch base with loved ones, and finding out what exactly is gong on? It is possibly way too soon to know.
In the meantime, I am using this time for self care and check in on loved ones. Sure, it may feel like a luxury.
Since this week is technically my March Break from my teaching career, I have been using this time for writing projects. Below is my schedule. PLEASE NOTE: I have not followed this schedule exactly as I’ve been flexible with the times, here and there. If I get to most of the things on this list, major success especially since some days it’s more about reading COVID updates on social media, meeting deadlines, and checking in with loved ones. Perhaps, you’ll find it helpful.
You will notice that my faith is an important part of my day. I am a practicing Christian and I’ve begun writing prayers this week (as in first time ever). I wrote my first ever prayer for healthcare workers. Much of my family members work in the US and Jamaican 🇯🇲 healthcare systems so in addition to my Canadian home, I am following the novel COVID-19 pandemics there as well. If you would like a copy, please contact me here.
On a different note, please join me on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at 11am EST for FOLD Kids Academy webinar. Click here for details. Check www.nadialhohn.com/events or my social media for updates on any more online visits.
Staying healthy is also essential! I am thinking of ways to serve my community more in the next few weeks. All of this will also be dependent on what this social distancing will look like in my career as a teacher.
Check on your loved ones! Take good care!
