In these crazy times, it’s important to lean on each other for support and guidance. It’s also not a bad idea to look to the stars for tips and tricks about how to stay healthy and strong, mentally and physically, during something as surreal as a global pandemic.
Everyone’s on the same page, and we’re all social distancing for the better of society. While we’re all coping with the changes differently, celebrities also have different approaches to getting their loved ones through the COVID-19 crisis.
So, what are the A-listers’ advice for staying positive and healthy? From teaching their children to being philanthropic, to spreading awareness about mental health and assisting medical workers, check out what these celebrities are doing to stay healthy and happy.
The Duchess of Sussex shared on Instagram that it’s okay not to be okay, and she encouraged her followers to acknowledge and accept whatever they are feeling, and “it’s perfectly normal to be feeling” confused, anxious, scared, alone, or bored. She also recommended resources that people could reach out to for mental health support.
The actress posted an inspiring message on Twitter about gratitude, and inspired her fans to be grateful in such dire times. “I refuse to be judgmental to those less fortunate & are under great discomfort during this time,” she wrote. “I choose to realize how blessed I am to have the space and luxuries to commit to it.”
With schools shut down, parents are quarantining with their children and have to assume the role of teacher. Kourtney tried to make light of the ordeal by teasing on Instagram that she’s the “homeschool PE teacher.” By doing so, the reality star applauded other parents who were stepping up for their kids and assuming new responsibilities.
The actress praised popular fashion designer Christian Siriano for making masks for medical workers on the frontline, and encouraged whoever was capable to help however they can: “It’s so inspiring to see you preserving and using your talents to keep people safe.”
All dressed up and nowhere to go? You’re not alone! Even though it’s comfortable to wear sweats everyday and live in cozy clothes, Miss Universe is inspiring others to find a routine and live life as normally as possible. She also shared an uplifting message about looking out for your loved ones. “Get up, dress up and go nowhere. Came to remind everyone that social distancing does not mean emotional distancing,” she wrote. “Check on your loved ones. We need each other now more than ever.”
The singer and her husband, Russell Wilson, realize how many people need help putting food on the table, and they motivated their followers to be charitable and spread love. “Rally with us and support your local food bank,” they said, announcing that they’ve donated 1 million meals through the organization Food Lifeline.
This is such a unique time to reconnect and enjoy your family, and Gabrielle is doing just that and inspiring her followers to say in the present and hold their loved ones near. Although we are socially isolating, we don’t have to emotionally detach from those we hold near!
