As the situation involving COVID-19 continues to evolve worldwide, we want to assure you that we are are still here supporting both book lovers and authors. We understand that with the uncertainty involved in how the pandemic is spreading, stress levels are much higher than normal. Even though we see the numbers of those testing positive for COVID-19 growing at an alarming rate, we encourage our fans to remain calm.
We have book lovers all over the world who have joined our fan club, so we implore you to follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national public health officials and your local public health officials on how to protect yourself and others from the coronavirus. Please continue to practice social distancing, hand-washing, avoiding touch of your eyes/mouth/face, etc.
A few more tips to help you cope during this difficult, unprecedented time:
- Exercise and eat right. With increased tension and anxiety, many folks may be tempted to self-medicate with junk food and sabbaticals from staying in shape. If EVER there was an ideal time to eat healthy and get exercise, it’s now! A brisk walk outside followed by robust calisthenics can rival any workout you’d get in a gym. For meals – fruits, vegetables, lean cuts of meat and plenty of water will help keep your immune system working properly.
- Take a brief pause from following news stories about the pandemic. It can be tempting to stay glued to your television or phone, inundating yourself with up-to-the-minute updates about the virus spread. While it’s definitely advisable to stay abreast of developments, please don’t let it dominate all of your attention.
- READ BOOKS! If you’re like most book lovers out there, you probably have a list of books that you’ve always wanted to dive into, but never had the time. While the majority of the world is quarantining itself for the moment, now is the perfect time for you to catch-up on all those books you’ve been meaning to finish.
We want to thank you so much for remaining a member of our book lover’s club. Despite the threat posed by COVID-19, the For Book Lovers Only team remains committed to serving you.
