Social Distancing: A How-To

Social Distancing: A How-To

When we’re being told to practice social distancing, you can start to feel trapped. You start feeling restless, irritable and lose all motivation to…anything. There’s only so much of the usual daily routine you can handle before you can’t stand it anymore. That old-timey disorder cabin fever can affect anybody, but what can you do to beat it?

Once you are confined to your home, those times of regular relaxation only last so long, you lose your sense of time, and you run into a period where you just don’t want to do the things you usually do when you’re at home.

Time to get out of the average home routine and make a new one.

Be Productive

Give yourself goals to accomplish each day, each week. Whether it’s cleaning a room, finishing that home project you’ve put off, re-purposing your house, take some time each day to DO something.

If you can combine your goals with something that makes you use your brain, that’s another benefit to those going stir crazy. Learn a new skill, build something you’ve put off; giving stimulation to your mind reduces feelings of isolation and uselessness.

Don’t Graze out of Boredom 

Keeping bits of your typical day helps you maintain a sense of schedule. When we get bored, we tend to eat whatever, whenever, grazing for food throughout the day.

Eating right gives you more energy and a better sense of motivation. You may be less hungry if you aren’t out moving around as much, but if you focus on keeping a healthy diet, limiting sugary and fatty foods.

Give Mom a Jingle

Stay in touch with your friends and family. When you begin to feel caged in your home, it’s time to benefit from some of the available technology.

Reach out to your friends, video chat them, stay in touch. Get a sense of things going on outside of your home. Take the extra time you have to reach out to some people you haven’t spoken to.

Take advantage of the technology available to us to get in touch with as much of the outside world as possible.

Social distancing can be a productive and enjoyable time away from the stressors of everyday life. Remember, it’s just a brief pause in time before we’re back to our daily routines.




The entire staff was very caring. I had my toddler with me and she was a bit rowdy and they gave her crayons with coloring pages and stickers and even a lollipop to help keep her occupied.

My son scribbled on a piece of paper and handed it to one of the woman in the front, saying that is say how his ears hurt, she accepted it and posted it on the artwork wall, when the PA came in to see him he was made to feel like a big deal because he had known about the paper. This is a place where the staff really cares about their patients and go the extra mile for them

Have been there a few times and hey have always been very fast, kind, courteous and welcoming. Always very helpful especially the front desk. The employee Heather helped me with pharmacy, paperwork and everything I needed help with. Only quick care I go too because of her.

I absolutely love our nurse Tiffany. She made our visit so comfortable. I had two very sick little boys who did not want to go to the Dr. She made the at ease in an instant and she took such great care of them. This was at the Quick care on 441 in Ocala Fl. I'll go back to this one because of her. And recommended to all my friends and family. Thanks so much!

I was there yesterday and I've never felt so shocked. The 3 girls I interacted with were the most pleasant and friendly caregivers I've ever dealt with. Idr the rep's name, but she was quick and prompt at taking all my info and with minimal Qs (kinda hard to answer when I have a cold), then Alexis took over. Very sympathetic, nice, and helpful. Then the physician saw me and was charismatic and very funny. Trying to keep me in good spirits. It was like all 3 were happy to be at their posts and to

We had Zaib Kahn as the provider and NEVER have I seen such a good bedside manner, as they call it! AND he personally called this a.m. to ask how my husband is feeling! (The pharmacy was closed when we left the ofc., and they asked us to allow until 11 to pick up the RXs, but that's NOT YOUR fault ;D I'm thrilled w/ Mr. Kahn's service and may well use your clinic for ALL my medical needs!!!! THANK YOU

The absolute BEST! Everyone here is so nice! We've had to come in a few times & they've always taken great care of us. We're usually out within 20-30 min. All the girls up front are very nice & helpful (you don't find that too often), so is the girl that takes your vitals. Dr B is the amazing! He takes his time to listen to what's wrong & always has a big smile. If we could have this office as our primary care location we would
