Now is the time of the great quarantine of 2020. Have you been wondering what to send to someone who needs their spirits lifted? How about sending them a quarantine care package? By now, we all know someone affected by threat of the COVID-19. Now is the time to reach out and help one another. This may seem difficult when it is becoming harder and hard to go about life in a normal way. We do have the internet and we can still shop!
My mom is 77 and lives in Florida with an auto-immune disease. Normally a vibrant and active retiree, she is having a hard time living alone during this crisis. This week is her birthday and instead of sending flowers, I decided to put together a boredom busting care package. I was able to find a bunch of items to send for around $50, which is what I would have paid for flowers.

Ladies Gloves for Quarantine Style
Not your normal Dr.’s office gloves. If you want to protect yourself from that persistent COVID-19 virus, why not do in style. Maye this is the year that opera gloves come back in style!
Game Books With Humor
Another great time killer is game books, Sudoku, word search, crosswords and even dot-to-dot are my favorites. But how about adding a bit of humor while you play?
Coloring Books For Relaxing
Coloring has the ability to relax the fear center of your brain, the amygdala. It induces the same state as meditating by reducing the thoughts of a restless mind. By creating mindfulness and quietness, you will be better able to rest after a long day of watching virus news. Picking books with and uplifting theme will also help to center you spiritually.
Soul Feeding Books
While we talking about centering the soul, why not throw in a book to help with that. I have listed a couple of favorites below.
Hopefully, the items above will inspire you to create your vary own quarantine care package to send to someone you know in need of some joy. Remember , we are all in this together and we need to reach out and do what we can.
