With everything going on in the world, it’s really easy to feel stressed out. Everything has been disrupted and all we knew is now changed. The leisure activities that used to bring us some joy in life, like sitting in a coffee shop or enjoying a nice meal in a restaurant, are mostly gone for now. Between concerns about the global pandemic and disrupted work schedules or no work at all, it’s no wonder that people’s anxiety levels are going through the roof. Yet errands and tasks still have to get done. If the thought of putting on a mask and gloves to go out and shop or take care of things is just too much, then perhaps it’s time to re-evaluate how things get done. Think outside the box and you’ll be able to take care of your to do list quickly and avoid the potential for encountering health issues along the way. The following are ways to make your life easier without having to leave the comfort of your home.
Get Your Medical Marijuana Card
In recent years, more and more consumers are showing interest in natural treatments for chronic and recurring conditions. Internet searches on herbs and other healing options have grown by leaps and bounds as people look for natural ways to improve their health. Many individuals have found that medical marijuana has made a positive difference in their life and their overall well-being. If you live in a state like New York, it’s easy to get your medical marijuana (MMJ) card online. You can quickly set up an appointment, be connected to a qualified provider and when you are approved you can order your card online directly from the New York state agency.
Shop for Groceries
Most of the major grocery chains and box stores that sell grocery items now offer online shopping. You can go to their sites and quickly look through the weekly ads for discounts and can even compare prices between two or three stores. When you find the right item at the right price, you simply add it to your online cart. There are several choices for grocery delivery. In some locations, the grocery store chain will offer delivery right to your home. Many times, there is a discount offered for the first time you use the service, so be sure to check for that. Alternatively, there are several independent services that will go to the stores, shop for your items and then bring them directly to you.
Schedule a Doctor’s Visit
If, for some reason, you need to see a primary care physician, but the thought of being in a waiting room full of sick people does not feel right, then set up an online appointment. Several companies offer tele-medicine services where you consult with the doctor via videoconferencing. You’ll be able to choose from different physicians and read helpful reviews. The doctor will evaluate your condition and can even order lab tests or call in prescriptions for you.
Get Your Favorite Meals Delivered
While cooking and preparing food at home will pass time, it’s really special to have some variety and celebration in life. Ordering a great meal from your favorite local restaurant and having it delivered right to your door is a nice treat in times like these. You can check the restaurant’s web site to see the delivery options, or you may find them listed on one of several national restaurant meal delivery services.
