Put on your mask first

Friday, 3 April, 2020 - 9:28 am

Are you going a little meshugah? a little cabin crazy?

I was. Being there for people during this crazy time helps.

Plus, when we used to fly on a plane they would say "In the event of an emergency, please put on your own oxygen mask before assisting others." 

You need to be sane and healthy in order to 

  • Serve Gd 
  • Serve your family
  • Serve your friends 
  • Serve your community

One thing I can advise is start with self-care!

Self-care comes in many shapes and sizes. Here are a few suggestions.

Physical Self Care

  • Go for a walk down the block - while maintaining social distancing
  • Do some exercise in the house
  • Drink water
  • Get enough sleep
  • Eat healthier
  • Take care of your health!

Spiritual Self Care


  • If your health allows - volunteer 
  • If your finances allow give charity - can be putting a few coins in a jar, or making a donation online 
  • If you have a phone - call (don't text) someone and check in on them 
  • Be positive - in your interactions on social media - think positive and exude kindness - more on that by my brother here

 Have an amazing Shabbos and a happy and healthy Passover!
