30 Tips, tricks, and resources to help manage life during COVID-19

By Halle Tecco

As a mother, CEO, and someone living with a chronic disease, I understand the myriad emotions Coronavirus is causing with social distancing, school closings, and preparing for the unknown. To get through this emotionally, I’ve been following Mr. Rogers’ advice to “look for the helpers.” From the frontline medical workers to the children serenading their isolated elderly neighbor, the helpers are out in abundance!

I’ve also been gathering tips and tricks to help manage life while we collectively try to "flatten the curve" and want to share in case they may be helpful to you, too.

COVID-19 Tips and Tricks

Keeping busy

Self-care

Relationship activities

  • Been planning to grow your family? Parent Plans has guided thought starters, to-dos, and activities to complete together with your partner (20% off this month)
  • Go through the New York Time’s relationship exercise, The 36 Questions That Lead to Love
  • USA Today put together 100 things to do while trapped inside, many of which make for an ideal at-home date night
  • Netflix offers a free month subscription, so pick out a new show to watch together during your extra time indoors

Occupying kids

  • Use these homeschooling templates from Khan Academy to plan your child’s schedule 
  • This awesome spreadsheet (that is getting updated every few hours) compiles free subscriptions from education companies 
  • Scholastic is offering free daily courses for kids stuck at home amid the school closures
  • Epic app (30 day free trial) offers hundreds of books, bringing the library to you
  • Not sure how long it will last, but the creator of Pete the Cat has been hosting storytime on IG Live at noon for the past two days...I hope he keeps it up! 
  • Go on a family safari at the Cincinnati Zoo (virtually)
  • This 30 minute music class for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers will entertain and stimulate your children
  • And if you're struggling with how to talk to your children about what's going on, PBS has some expert tips

If you're not feeling great...

While a lot is unknown about coronavirus and pregnancy, we do know it is important to manage anxiety as much as possible over the coming weeks (I know, I know, easier said than done).

As always, we’re here for you if you need us. Stay safe and healthy.
