Three Ways to be All In

Last week, Governor Pritzker announced the #AllIn campaign as a way to unite Illinois’ citizens as we adhere to shelter-in-place policies. Staying inside doesn’t have to mean a complete abandonment of our favorite activities, however.

Three ways to be All In:

Establish a Routine
Sheltering in place has been hard for some to adjust to because of the disruption to daily schedules. However, you can still maintain a level of normalcy by following an ‘inside’ routine.

If you’re working from home, you might enjoy adding an evening walk once the workday is over. Just be sure to adhere to safe social distancing when you encounter others on the street.
