Trisha Yearwood has been stuck in coronavirus quarantine for a couple months, and during a recent talk with fans she revealed what she strives to do every day.
“I’ve made myself a goal of trying to do something productive every day,” she said. “It doesn’t have to be big. I mean, if get the laundry done, I’m like, ‘I did that!”
She also added that she has taken to mowing the lawn, which she called good therapy.
“I also started mowing the grass. I know that sounds crazy, but, you know, we have a big yard,” she said. “We live on a farm, so we have different places that we have to mow. And we’re usually touring so we can’t mow all the time, and the grass doesn’t wait for you. I used to love to mow the grass as a kid! I used to beg my dad to let me mow the grass, so I’ve gotten back on that. And I’ve got to say that’s been really good therapy. Very zen.”
Yearwood said Brooks is an early riser and always is out working on the farm when she wakes up.
“That’s what he does in the mornings,” Yearwood said. “But when I got up, I walked into the kitchen, the dishes were done and coffee was made. He’s the best!”
“I live with a guy who always sees the bright side so, I think that he might need therapy once we get through this, but he has been a really wonderful source of strength for me,” she went on praising Brooks.
Brooks himself added, “I think I love the whole upside-down of it all because the celebrities and the idols now are not the singers or the celebrities, the idols are the people that are in the grocery stores that are working and those doctors and nurses that are on the front lines in the hospitals. Those are the rock stars now. Love them, appreciate them, worship them. They have all of our strength in prayers.”
The CDC has issued some tips for helping to avoid contracting the disease.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
