Helping Others, Taking Care of Yourself

During the Pandemic Stretch It Out For Huntington’s Disease

Author Therese Crutcher-Marin

Good Morning Huntington’s Disease Community!         

The Pandemic continues to confine us to our home waiting for our turn to receive the vaccination, so I want to share with you my exercise routine that John and I do about 4-5 times a week.

I hope you will consider incorporating in your day, stretching and getting your heart rate up by marching in place, as an example.  It truly helps you stay positive, feel good about yourself, and uplifts you mentally.

I’m not an exercise expert, I’m giving some suggestions to help you through your day at home.

Hope, Kindness, Love

Am I Ever Happy to Celebrate the New Year!

From my family to yours, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

As a person who sees the glass half full instead of half empty, I’m looking for a return to some sense of normality and to having access to the vaccine and being able to relax and be hopeful. It will be a relief to see the job market rebound.  Bye, bye 2020 and welcome 2021.

Kindness

Overwhelming Act of Kindness

I blog a lot about kindness and the need for it in our world today.  On December 27, 2019, a fire broke out at an old hotel in Minneapolis Minnesota that had been converted to apartments for the homeless.  There was an outpouring of help for the 200 displaced by the fire.

“Those displaced from the apartments, many of them homeless with nowhere else to stay, were offered help helter-skelter as news broke about the fire and donations began pouring in. Buses were brought in to provide immediate warmth and temporary shelter. The Red Cross and the Salvation Army soon arrived to hand out blankets, food, water and baby wipes.”

Though there is much difficulty in finding these folks a new place to live, I was impressed by the community and how quickly they reached out to help.
