Here's a snapshot of some of the things that have been keeping our staff physically and mentally fit while we WFH:
I walk outside, or inside, while using free audio book apps from The San Francisco Public Library. - Aaron
I've been taking walks around my neighborhood, and learning a new language using good old-fashioned books. - Courtney
I’ve put hundreds of miles on my stationary bike while watching Ozark on Netflix—it takes me to another realm entirely for an hour! - Diane
I have been doing some exercises on a stationary bike, cooking, baking, listening to and watching spiritual programs. - Fiona
Meditation, yoga, walks, and audiobooks are my coping tools. - Marcia
For mental fitness, I am taking an Introduction to Online Teaching & Learning, which has made me think quite a bit about the challenges of teaching an online or hybrid course. For physical fitness, I have been exploring Mare Island, which is filled with abandoned buildings, nature preserves, and lots of birds. There is always something to marvel at, and our Northern California weather has been beautiful as usual. - Richard
And finally, here's a picture from one of Jean's walks:
The Law Library staff wishes everyone health and safety during this unprecedented time.
