For many at this hour, the ongoing Safer-at-home practice might feel like the middle of a marathon.

Having sprinted out of the gate, they’ve stayed energized through the first stretch. Now with only a glimpse of a finish line in sight, they’re possibly struggling to keep up momentum and hope. This is especially true for those who choose to self-isolate into these next few weeks regardless of new rules and regulations.

This is when reaching out for support and leaning on community is probably the most crucial. 

Here are a few current and ongoing resources – going on locally - that might be helpful right about now, to hopefully uplift you and yours in the best of ways.

Have fun with creativity:

The El Segundo Museum of Art has a JUST DRAW class each Friday on Zoom. Adults of all skill levels are invited and welcome. Themes change weekly.

The Torrance Art Museum is hosting ongoing art and film education, entertainment, and exhibitions via their website and social media; programs are engaging and enriching.

Stay in shape to boost endorphins:

Beach Cities Health District has a library of over 40 health, fitness, and mindfulness classes on YouTube, for varying fitness levels – something for everyone.

Lean into a safe place for support:

Beach Cities Health District has classes and support groups for caregivers and those with mild memory impairment, and special sessions for families and parenting

Feel like you’re out and about:
