If you’re feeling sorry for yourself during COVID-19 (I’m guilty as charged), then spare a thought for Olympian and local Bulli legend Ryan Gregson. Ryan competes in gruelling middle-distance running. He’s the current Australian 1500 m record holder. If you’ve never watched the event, it’s like a 400-metre sprint that doesn’t end. Impressive but punishing stuff.
Hats off to parents trying to juggle this Coronavirus crisis with their families. Explaining changes in routine, the social distancing, the necessary introduction of more than "that's yucky" to the conversation with kids must be a trying process. All while not freaking them out, mind you.
Given that isolation and social distancing are working a treat, most Aussies are doing the right thing and staying at home. It’s important to know that you can still use your health cover - whether that be online, on the phone or in-person.
These tips are inspired by one of our fabulous Peoplecarers, Katie, who has three kids under six. Katie’s tips are adapted from the templates that local parents are sharing as they adapt to a harmonious homeschooling life. Thanks Katie!
