Wash your hands. Do social distancing. Are these the only two things we can do to protect our health during this pandemic? Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farms, author, and speaker, offers ideas about how to strengthen our immune system and our spirit during this time of crisis. He suggests that we cannot rely on health officials or the government to make us well. We must take our health into our own hands.
Among other things, Joel recommends diversifying our microbiome by getting dirty (instead of trying to create a sterile environment), getting restorative sleep, hydrating, and cultivating healthy relationships. This conversation reminds us of the good things that are happening, and the positive choices we can make in the midst of the challenges. COVID-19 (also known as the Coronavirus) threatens the status quo and feels de-stabilizing. But this time can teach us resilience and provide opportunities to build our health and our community’s interdependence.
