Stay Fit At Home: Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system. And when your heart and lung health are strong 💪 , you have more energy to handle the host of chores that comes with this new normal at home. Last week, I was struggling to make time for movement as I slumped at my desk all day re-focusing my wellness business. So, this week, I forced myself to commit to an early morning daily practice to keep serotonin and endorphins (feel good hormones) balancing out cortisol (stress) which are heightened at any sign of a creeping virus. 🧘‍♀️I like my friend Erika’s Ashtanga yoga where deep and even breathing is nourishing for the nervous system. 💛 .... 🧘🏻‍♀️Check out our weekly Wednesday 10:30 am est on my IG Live with @erikahalweil to attend a free restorative class. 🙏🏻 A new favorite app is from fitness equipment brand @technogym - TWellness - for quick and free exercise routines any time of the day. 💪🏋️‍♀️ .... 🎸🎼But the best thing in this video: My daughter Bella is singing and playing this song on guitar (a recording I made 5 years ago,) I loved it so much I wanted to share it. 🎼🎸♥️

According to Cristina, exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and helps keep the cardiovascular system healthy. The result is an increase in energy, and a feeling of well being, essential at a time when most people are anxious and concerned about the future.

CHRIS CUOMO'S BROTHER CONCERNED

The Governor of New York STate addressed his brother's condition at a recent briefing. Andrew Cuomo spoke about his brother's diagnosis and expressed natural concern, but also the belief that his brother would overcome the virus. He said:

"This virus is the great equalizer. My brother, Chris, is positive for coronavirus. (...) He's young; in good shape; strong -— not as strong as he thinks, but — he'll be fine."

BROADCASTING FROM THE BASEMENT

Chris continues to anchor his 9 p.m. show "Cuomo Prime Time" from his basement, despite his illness. He wrote about his symptoms:

"I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fevers, chills and shortness of breath."

FIRST COVID-19 CASE IN CNN

Since the Coronavirus crisis began, CNN has had most of its employees working from home, with anchors broadcasting from their own residences or small studios that the network has sanitized at regular intervals. Chris Cuomo is the first CNN employee to be diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic started.

Like his brother, Governor Cuomo, Chris continues to let people to the fact that the only way to stop the spread of the virus and flatten the curve of infection is to practice social distancing. 

New York state, under the leadership of Andrew Cuomo, has shut down all non-essential services and businesses and is busy preparing vast field hospitals to receive the sick. The motto seems to Be: stay inside, stay healthy.
