Things To Do While Social Distancing
I am sure no one expected March to be the month of Social Distancing, but as a team, we’re working from home and holding our team meetings online.
We’re still here to support YOU and local businesses. We’ve put together a list of resources for entertainment, education, and satisfying your hunger cravings.
If there’s anything you think we should add to this list, please let us know in the comments below, or by sending us an email!
Working Out and Physical Wellness
Your gym might be closed but that doesn’t mean your physical wellness needs to take a hit. Here are some resources to inspire you to keep moving!
- I just started the My Peak Challenge's 30-day Social Distancing Challenge. New videos are updated daily, by the end of the day. It's a great workout and will definitely keep you moving.
- The Peloton App free trial has been extended to 90 days, and no, you don’t need the bike!
- CrossFit has a number of free beginner workouts on their website.
- Orange Theory is uploading a 30-minute at-home workout daily on their website. These are also available on demand on their YouTube channel.
- If you have a back yard or porch, get some fresh air!

Food Delivery and Local Businesses
Restaurants and local businesses need our support as much as possible right now.
- Uber Eats is currently offering $0 delivery fees on all orders. Uber Eats is a convenient way to order food, but you can save money by ordering directly from restaurants.
- DoorDash is also offering free delivery for many local restaurants.
- Instacart lets you shop online and order from 15 different stores including Safeway, Costco, CVS Pharmacy, Petco, and other local stores.
It’s important to take care of yourself as well as everyone else. I am sure you’re worried about friends and relatives, but be sure to take a moment to take care of you!
- Meditate with apps like Meditation Studio, Brain.FM, or this Five Minute Meditation when you need a quick break.
- Stay connected! Put a phone-date on the calendar so you can stay connected with friends from afar.
