“My husband is a doctor and each morning when he leaves for work, I worry. My daughter coughs and I worry. My throat itches and I worry. On Facetime, I watch my elderly parents. I admonish them gently: Don’t let people come to the house.

“This is a time to cope in the best way we can. There are moments when our spirits will sag. Moments when we will feel tired after doing absolutely nothing. But how can we not? The world as it is today is foreign to us. It would be strange not to be shaken to our core.

“I cannot imagine thinking of over-achieving, or of accomplishing more than usual, when all around you the world as you know it has changed, perhaps never to return to what it used to be.

She admonished her readers and fans across the world to stay hydrated and share love to everyone around.

“We must choose to live and to do so we can set small goals. Like, drink more water, if you’ve spent the past ten years wanting to be more hydrated. Learn something every day, no matter how small.

“Also call loved ones not text them, call them. Like, help someone with a small cash transfer, or an encouraging message, a shared laugh.
