It’s tough to be living during a pandemic. 2020 was a hard year for Awesome in Action to do outreach and community based activities. But there are lots of activities you can do while staying safe and socially distancing. COVID doesn’t mean you can’t have fun, it just looks a little different right now.
When you are a high risk individual you have to think about activities you can do that are fun but also safe. Thankfully there’s plenty to do to keep busy!
Taking a walk is a healthy way to have fun while staying socially distant. You can walk with friends or by yourself.
Watching a movie you love at home is a great way to enjoy time alone or socially distancing with friends.
Listening to music passes the time and can stimulate your brain and help you enjoy time inside.
Cooking and enjoying or sharing food you make can help you develop healthy habits and allow you to activate your senses. You can even deliver meals to friends or family and drop them at the door.
Arts and crafts let you express yourself creatively while staying safe inside.
Working on your business by publishing updates, keeping up with social media, and brainstorming ideas can be productive and lucrative.
Call your friends and family and check in on them, everyone is struggling right now so a call from you might make their day!
Remember, stay safe and wear your mask!
Look for more updates soon announcing Social Distance Storytimes with Nick and Awesome and Action, a way for Nick to get into classrooms virtually!
North Atzlan Center
On August 17th and 18th Nick and the Awesome in Action team participated in Fort Collins Comic Con for the 3rd year.
This awesome event brings creative people from the community together to share ideas and creations with participants.
Nick’s booth was used to show that anyone can be a hero. Nick helped kids make awesome superhero masks and posed for pictures. Nick made sure to help everyone who visited his booth understand that they have superpowers that make them special.
Nick really enjoyed seeing all the creative and fun costumes and getting to dress up himself! Some of the costumes were scary, but Nick showed his superpowers by keeping calm, cool, and collected when something scary walked by his booth!
Nick presented a panel on Saturday, where he gave his Anyone Can Be a Hero speech. He talked about his struggles and challenges as a person living with Cerebral Palsy, and how he overcomes his challenges and finds his inner superhero.
The organizers of Comic Con have always been kind and welcoming to Nick and his team, and helped make the Con as successful as possible for Nick. Nick had so much help and support to make this event a success and he wants to send a special thank you to his team, the Comic Con team and Nick Armstrong, and Annie Schubert who helped Nick with his panel.
The impact Nick made on those who stopped by his booth was pretty clear, and Nick was happy to make some really great connections with others in his community who want to help spread his message.
Comic Con was a success again this year, and Nick is excited and ready to start presenting in classrooms for the school year.
If you or someone you know is interested in having Nick come to your classroom or event to offer one of his many presentations, please contact him via email at email@example.com.
Nick’s presentations can be adapted to any situation and age group, and his message of inclusion and diversity is appropriate for all ages.
