Toni Garcia is the creator and author behind the carefully crafted posts that drive the
Blue Jean Chronicles Movement. The sole purpose of this platform is to be an empowering and supportive place of healing content.
It all began with the creation of a Vision Board in 2018 while wearing a pair of her favorite jeans. The jeans belong to her late father and this is where she draws much of her inspiration. He always spoke about the importance of self awareness and balance.
This movement was further galvanized by her own journey of healing and self-reflection. Blue Jean Chronicles can be described as an eclectic mix of self-care, motivation and mental health tips for everyday living.
“Are you actively loving yourself?
Do your actions towards yourself reflect the spirit of love?By this I mean are you eating like you love yourself, are you speaking kind words into your spirit, do you give yourself time to rest and regroup? I know these questions seem silly, but in reality these are all acts of love.
What is one way you actively show love to yourself? “

COVID & OUR KIDS
More than 164,000 people have died in the US as a result of Covid-19 since the beginning of the pandemic. As one influential model now projects the US death toll from coronavirus could reach nearly 300,000 by December 1, many experts are calling for stronger national leadership against the virus.
The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar in children and adults. COVID-19 can look different to different people. For many people, being sick with COVID-19 would be a little bit like having the flu. People can get a fever, cough, or have a hard time taking deep breaths. Most people who have gotten COVID-19 have not gotten very sick. Only a small group of people who get it have had more serious problems. It has been seen that fewer children contract COVID-19 and among infected, children have less severe disease. Insights in pathophysiological mechanisms of less severity in children could be important for devising therapeutics for high-risk adults and elderly.
Some experts suggest that children might not be as severely affected by COVID-19 because there are other coronaviruses that spread in the community and cause diseases such as the common cold. Since children often get colds, they might have antibodies that provide them with some protection against COVID-19. Children are likely to be experiencing worry, anxiety and fear, and this can include the types of fears that are very similar to those experienced by adults, such as a fear of dying, a fear of their relatives dying, or a fear of what it means to receive medical treatment.
If schools have closed as part of necessary measures, then children may no longer have that sense of structure and stimulation that is provided by that environment, and now they have less opportunity to be with their friends and get that social support that is essential for good mental well-being.
Simple strategies that can address this can include giving young people the love and attention that they need to resolve their fears, and being honest with children, explaining what is happening in a way that they can understand, even if they are young. Children are very perceptive and will model how to respond.
