**Staying Active While Social Distancing/Questions and Answers: from Health.gov.
According to Health.gov: Posted on April 7, 2020 by ODPHP:
Why is it important for me to be active?
“Physical activity can provide immediate benefits. Physical activity can help to boost your mood, reduce stress, improve sleep, and sharpen your focus — benefits that can be especially important during stressful times. Physical activity can also help you live a longer, healthier life by reducing the risk of many common chronic diseases, like type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
How much activity do adults need?
According to the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, adults need a mix of activities to stay healthy, including at least:
- 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity a week
- 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity a week
During stressful times, it’s important to remember that some physical activity is better than none! Adults should move more and sit less throughout the day. If you’re working from home, try taking activity breaks throughout the day or walking around your house during conference calls.
How much activity do kids need?
With many children home from school, parents and caregivers might be wondering how to get kids moving. The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommends that kids and teens ages 6 to 17 get 60 minutes of activity every day. Kids younger than 6 need physical activity, too — it helps support their growth and development. Preschool children are active naturally, so aim to help them be active throughout the day and avoid time just sitting around.
Remember, lots of things count as physical activity — and it all adds up! Ask your kids to teach you their favorite game from physical education class or recess, have a family dance party, or challenge each other to learn a new yoga pose or do another push-up.

Random Acts of Kindness
You don’t need money, just a little time to give mental support and be kind to all. Check on the elderly, bring their Newspaper to their door in bad weather, say hello to your neighbors when you see them, wish them happy holidays and birthdays etc. Call your parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers, aunts and uncles; talk to them to make sure they are not lonely. Thank the soldiers when you see them for keeping us safe; thank priests, police officers, teachers, health care workers, food suppliers, postal workers, newspaper persons, trash collectors for their services. Write notes to a lonely and unknown person and make his or her day. Give thanks to all those heroes who are sacrificing their lives to help others during this Pandemic. You all are Angels.
