3 Healthy Things to Do When Social Distancing

3 Healthy Things to Do When Social Distancing

We are all learning how to live in this ‘new normal’ as the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic. For most of us, that means staying at home in self-isolation and social distancing from friends and family. It can be a challenging time for everyone.

While we are not the experts when it comes to mental and physical health, we came across a great resource that provided tips for staying health and happy during this stressful time. As your neighbours, the team at Pro-Tow, Motorplex and Pro-Enviro are feeling the strain too, and thought these might be helpful.

Connect with Others

We might have to make a physical distance from the people we care about, but we don’t have to stop connecting with them. In a digital age, there are lots of options for connecting virtually including web chats, FaceTime, and other video conferencing software. Making connections can help you find the support you need, especially if you’re feeling lonely and isolated.

Go for a Walk.

If you are not under quarantine, or mandated self-isolation for traveling or having symptoms, health authorities have said it’s okay to take walks outside. You should only do this in areas where you can respect social distancing requirements, which means staying a minimum of 6 feet away from another person.

Both physical exercise and being outdoors can be helpful for your mental health. In fact, spending time in nature has many health benefits including stress reduction, boosted immune system, lowering blood pressure and general improved mood.

A walk, if you can keep 6 feet away from other people, can be a good way to break up your day. However, if you’re considered high risk due to your age and/or have an underlying health condition, you need to be extra cautious and might decide it’s best to stay indoors.

Take Vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential for many important body functions. Not only does it help us fight off disease, it can reduce depression and anxiety too. A study completed recently in Ireland found that vitamin D plays a vital role in preventing respiratory infections and can help boost the immune system as it responds to infections. If you can’t get outside for 15 minutes or more each day, consider a vitamin D supplement.

You can read more about that study here.

 

Can I Still Get My Car Towed During the COVID-19 Crisis?

Can I Still Get My Car Towed During the COVID-19 Crisis?

Having your car break down on the side of the road is already a stressful experience. Having it break down during a global pandemic can feel like a nightmare. The good news is that most people are choosing to stay at home, limit travel, and because of this the roads are not very busy. Fewer vehicles on the road mean fewer break downs. But still, if you’re traveling and you need emergency towing, you are not out of luck.

Pro-Tow Continues 24-Hour Towing Services

Pro-Tow 24-Hour Towing is offering emergency towing services around the clock. We operate out of Auburn, WA, Spokane, WA, and Maple Valley, WA, but our service area is expansive. If you need our help, we can still come to get your vehicle. 24-hour towing services and other recovery services are considered an essential service, and therefore, are still operating.

Staying Safe When Needing a Tow

There are a few things we need to take care of while operating during a health crisis. We are committed to the health and safety of our customers and will require a few things from you to help us protect our operators.

If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, are self-isolating, or are under quarantine, you need to let our phone operators know. Being aware of the risk will allow us to take extra safety precautions when towing your vehicle. That includes wearing gloves, using hand sanitizer and disinfecting areas that are touched by our operator. It might also mean that you will need to leave the keys on the seat and move away from the vehicle while they get it hooked up. You will not be permitted to ride with our driver in their truck and will need a ride if you are away from your home.

If you do not have symptoms and are not self-isolating, we will still take precautions. We will keep 2 meters away from you while hooking up your vehicle. Our operators will do their best to keep you and themselves protected, including wearing gloves and using hand sanitizer.
