“From Wired and Tired to Chilled and Fulfilled”

As the pandemic forces the world to go into ‘lockdown’, many people are wondering what they’ll do, how they’ll survive,  and how they’ll avoid going stir crazy.

Whether or not you are in lockdown, the best thing you can possibly do is focus on being ‘Positively Well’.

Here is a poem with 50 evidence-based, immunity-boosting, anxiety-relieving wellness activities that can be done during the current global slowdown with minimal cost, skills or equipment. These activities include some of the most potent ways to defend against a virus, deal with chronic disease and alleviate the anxiety associated with the current global uncertainty.

Click on each activity to see a sample of the scientific evidence behind it. This short ‘Poetic Prescription’ will help you stay ‘Positively Well’ and go:
