#StayHomePalmSprings: How to Create Functional Spaces in Your Home During the Coronavirus Outbreak

How To Create Functional Space At Home During the Coronavirus

Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), many of us are spending a lot more time at home. We’re all being called upon to avoid public spaces and practice social distancing to help slow the spread of this infectious disease. While it can be understandably challenging, there are ways you can modify your home and your lifestyle to make the best of this difficult situation.

Here are a few tips for creating comfortable and functional spaces within your home for work, school, and fitness. We also share some of our favorite ways to stay connected as a community, because we’re all in this together … and no one should face these trying times alone. 

Begin with the Basics 

A basic home emergency preparedness kit is a great addition to any home, even under normal circumstances. It should include items like water, non-perishable food, a flashlight, first aid kit, and other essentials you would need should you temporarily lose access to food, water, or electricity.

Fortunately, authorities don’t anticipate any serious interruptions to utilities or the food supply during this outbreak. However, it may be a good time to start gathering your emergency basics in a designated location, so you’ll be prepared now-—and in the future—should your family ever need them.

Working From Home

Many employees are being asked to work remotely. If you’re transitioning to a home office for the first time, it’s important to create a designated space for work … so it doesn’t creep into your home life, and vice versa. If you live in a small condominium or apartment, this may feel impossible. But try to find a quiet corner where you can set up a desk and comfortable chair. The simple act of separating your home and work spaces can help you focus during work hours and “turn off” at the end of the day.

Of course, if you have children who are home with you all day (given many schools and daycares are now closed), separating your home and work life will be more difficult. Unless you have a partner who can serve as the primary caregiver, you will need to help manage the needs of your children while juggling work and virtual meetings.

If both parents are working from home, try alternating shifts, so you each have a designated time to work and to parent. If that’s not an option, experts recommend creating a schedule for your children, so they know when you’re available to play, and when you need to work.1 A red stop sign on the door can help remind them when you shouldn’t be disturbed. And for young children, blocking off a specific time each day for them to nap or have independent screen time can give you a window to schedule conference calls or work uninterrupted.

Homeschooling Your Children

Many parents with school-aged children will be taking on a new challenge: homeschooling. Similar to a home office, designating a space for learning activities can help your child transition between play and school. If you’re working from home, the homeschooling area would ideally be located near your workspace, so you can offer assistance and answer questions, as needed.

If possible, dedicate a desk or table where your child’s work can be spread out—and left out when they break for meals and snacks. Position supplies and materials nearby so they are independently accessible, and place a trash can and recycling bin within reach for easy cleanup. A washable, plastic tablecloth can help transition an academic space into an arts and crafts area. 

 If the weather is nice, try studying outside! A porch swing is a perfect spot for reading, and gardening in the backyard is a great addition to any science curriculum.

In addition to creating an academic learning environment, find age-appropriate opportunities for your children to help with household chores and meal preparation. Homeschooling advocates emphasize the importance of developing life skills alongside academic ones.2 And with more meals and activities taking place at home, there will be ample opportunity for every family member to pitch in and help.

Staying Fit

With gyms closed and team sports canceled, it can be tempting to sit on the sofa and binge Netflix. However, maintaining the physical health and mental wellness of you and your family is crucial right now. Implementing a regular exercise routine at home can help with both.

If you live in a community where you can safely exercise outdoors while maintaining the recommended distance between you and other residents, try to get out as much as possible. If the weather is nice, go for family walks, jogs, or bike rides.

Can’t get outside? Fortunately, you don’t need a home gym or fancy exercise equipment to stay fit. Look for a suitable space in your home, garage, or basement where you can comfortably move—you’ll probably need at least a 6’ x 6’ area for each person. Many cardio and strength training exercises require little (or no) equipment, including jumping jacks, lunges, and pushups.

And if you prefer a guided workout, search for free exercise videos on YouTube—there are even options specifically geared towards kids—or try one of the many fitness apps available.

Socializing From a Distance

Even though we’re all being called upon to practice “social distancing” right now, there are still ways to stay safely connected to our communities and our extended families. Picking up the phone is a great place to start. Make an effort to reach out to neighbors and loved ones who live alone and may be feeling particularly isolated right now.

And while parties and playdates may be prohibited, modern technology offers countless ways to organize networked gatherings with family and friends. Try using group video conferencing tools like Google Hangouts and Zoom to facilitate a virtual happy hour or book club. Host a Netflix Party to watch (and chat about) movies with friends. Or plan a virtual game night and challenge your pals to a round of Psych or Yahtzee.

There are safe ways to connect offline, too. Rediscover the lost art of letter writing. Drop off groceries on an elderly neighbor’s porch. Or organize a neighborhood “chalk walk,” where children use sidewalk chalk to decorate their driveways and then head out for a stroll to view their friends’ artwork.

Of course, there’s one group of people who you can still socialize with freely—those who reside in your home. Family dinners are back, siblings are reconnecting, and many of us have been given the gift of time, with commutes, activities, and obligations eliminated. In fact, some families are finding that this crisis has brought them closer than ever. 

YOU ARE NOT ALONE 

Even with all of the tools and technology available to keep us connected, many of us are still feeling stressed, scared, and isolated. However, you can rest assured that you are not alone. We’re not only here to help you buy and sell real estate. We want to be a resource to our clients and community through good times and bad. If you and your family are in need of assistance, please reach out and let us know how we can help.

The Top 9 Things to Do in Palm Springs

If you’re looking for a place to live with endless activity options, Palm Springs is the place for you. There is always something to do year round for people of all ages and interests. In this blog I will outline a few of my go to suggestions.

The best place to start is the visitor center. This used to be an old gas station and is now transformed into all things Palm Springs. Here you will find a variety of resources to make your time in Palm Springs a fun one. 

The most popular attraction is definitely the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. This is a hot spot for both locals and tourists! It is the largest rotating tram car in the world. The entire ride is around ten minutes long and during that time the tram cars rotate slowly, so no matter where you sit during the journey you are guaranteed picturesque views of the valley below you until you reach an elevation 8,516 feet. At the top, on a clear day, you can see all the way to Las Vegas, Coachella Valley, and even the Salton Sea! Once you get to the top there is lots to do. There’s a state park, hiking trails, educational and cultural exhibits, a ranger station, an adventure center, and two restaurants to fuel you for your fun filled adventures! The tram is open seven days a week and tickets can be purchased here: https://pstramway.com/

If art is your thing, then you are in luck! Palm Springs hosts three art museums! The central one is located on 101 Museum Drive, and contains 28 galleries, classrooms, exhibits, and a theater! More information and ticket prices can be found on their website https://www.psmuseum.org/. There is also the Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center which has free entry every Thursday! To discover what current exhibition is being held there, head on over to their website: https://www.psmuseum.org/visit/psam-a-and-d-center. Lastly, there is the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert which always has free admission and their website is https://www.psmuseum.org/visit/palm-desert. So many fun activities to do that don’t cost you a penny! 

More hot spots include the Tahquitz Canyon, which is one of the most beautiful and culturally sensitive areas in Palm Springs. It contains a 60 foot waterfall, native rock art, and an ancient irrigation system! To find out more about their educational and cultural offerings visit their website: http://www.tahquitzcanyon.com/canyon

Every Thursday in downtown Palm Springs, Village Fest is held. This festive pedestrian event consists of 80 vendors lined up and down canyon drive. You and your family or friends can walk up and down exploring the different items for sale and taking in the sights and sounds. The local businesses also stay open later for extended fun! A list of their vendors can be found here: http://villagefest.org/

Palm Springs Air Museum is one of the best in the world. It features over 59 flyable and static aircraft from World War II, the Vietnam War, and the Korean Conflict. In this climate controlled building there is also a library with a flight simulator and extensive murals and art about aviation. 

The museum is open everyday except Thanksgiving and Christmas. Tickets can be purchased here: https://palmspringsairmuseum.org/

The Living Desert Zoo is a big hit among adults and children. This is a place where you can see jaguars, cheetahs, mexican wolves, and even feed a giraffe! There are miles of hiking and nature trails, plus a hands on discovery center. You can see camels, hummingbirds, and butterflies. There is also a free app for audio stops to learn interesting facts. Buy tickets here: https://www.livingdesert.org/

Last, but certainly not least, is the Palm Springs Historical Society. They offer up to 10 different walking tours! Some include the heart of city tour, rat pack city tour, and even local bike tour. Of course there is also shopping, dining, a casino and relaxing by the pool, as well as hiking, tennis, and golf. Like I said, you will never run out of things to do. Palm Springs is jam packed with fun activities for all!
