Life these days will never be as it once was. Making adjustments can be rough so we wanted to give you some suggestions to help you cope.
Go for a Hike
Maui is still home to some of the most beautiful hikes and walks in the world. Most of these walks are still available to the public. Getting a little Vitamin D is essential for optimal health. Even if you don’t enjoy the exercise and sunlight when you are getting it, you are sure to feel better overall. Think of the outdoor recreation as paying it forward. Dog owners also can take their dogs and get pet owner points too.
One of Hawaii’s greatest economical downfalls is its reliance on non-Hawaii food sources. Now is a great time to do your part in producing plant resources locally. Gardening can be an enjoyable recreational activity that most find rewarding. I have been helping my mother with her yard and garden. With gyms closed, gardening and landscaping have been my primary source of exercise and are helping to keep me emotionally and mentally balanced.
Jam Some Music
There has never been a better to time finally learn how to play that instrument that you have been wanting to learn your whole life. Pick up a guitar, piano, or ukulele and start strumming away. Get your start by checking out the unlimited amount of online instructional videos. Once you outgrow the videos, maybe set up some video calls with an actual music teacher. With musicians losing lots of work recently, many professional musicians have turned to online music lessons and online music performances. Not only can you learn how to play, but you are helping musicians transition in their greatest time of need.
Surf and Dive
Since the beaches are back open in Hawaii, it’s a great time to get back in the water. Even if your local public pool is closed, you can always swim in the ocean. Of course, safety is paramount so please do not take any unnecessary risks. If you have any questions about the conditions make sure to check in with a local lifeguard. Ocean novices, please only use beaches with active lifeguards on duty.
Don’t Forget to Zoom
Just because you can’t physically be around your friends, doesn’t mean you should never see their faces. Learn to use Zoom or equivalent software. Many have used social distancing as an opportunity to connect with old friends from all over the world.
