Persons living by themselves are forced to remain in isolation without visitors.

2. Thoughts-keep ongoing check on your thoughts. Ask yourself where the thoughts are coming from? How do my thoughts coincide with God’s thoughts?
3. Emotional-monitor your feelings. What brought about these feelings? What can be done to move forward or release this emotional moods? How can we give these feelings over to God? Do I need to take some me-time, crying time, confrontation time with self and others?
4. Physical-be good to yourself. Stay fit. If you need to see a physician do so. Exercise daily. Eat healthy (during this season, less junk food would be a wise choice).
