Doing The Right Thing Can Be Lonely

Humans are social creatures. It’s in our nature to come together both physically and emotionally. But when staying apart becomes a matter of public health, it’s equally natural to feel isolated and lonely. Social connection is an important aspect of overall wellbeing. The longer the isolation, the higher the risk of developing depression or anxiety. Don’t let this scare you, though! There are many ways to combat this, and people have been finding new and creative ways to stay engaged and productive no matter the circumstances. Here are just a few great strategies for staying connected during quarantine. Note: If you're feeling a persistent sadness or anxiety that interferes with day-to-day life, consider talking to a therapist, which is also available online.

It’s As Easy As Riding A Bike

Who of us doesn’t remember the rush of excitement when cruising down a new, undiscovered bike path? Our banana seat and sissy bar in place to allow for our best friend to catch a ride, with the wind whipping past, we were free! Well at least until after Labor Day when school started back. But somewhere along the lines we forgot that thrill, we traded our trusted “blue comet” for a Honda, and sacrificed the freedom of the open road to four walls and a desk. However, no one said that biking had to remain in our childhood. In fact, thanks to the excellent exercise factor, biking is making a great comeback for many active adults.
