Notes From The Nurse

Let’s NOT talk about COVID. In fact, let’s talk about HAPPY things.


1. Do things for others—be generous.

2. Connect with people—surround yourself with people who lift you up and hold you

accountable to do good things.

3. Take care of your body—move! Be active, take walks.

4. Live life mindfully—stop and take notice of the wonderful world around you!

5. Keep learning new things—it exposes us to new ideas and helps us stay curious and engaged.
