Beat the Heat, Run for Tigers

For many of you who spent countless hours on the couch binge-watching the Netflix documentary Tiger King, the majestic cats most likely piqued your interest. While Chatham County’s Carolina Tiger Rescue has no association with the docuseries, their starring characters are very much the same – the tigers. As a nonprofit, wildlife sanctuary, their mission is rooted in the protection of wild cats in captivity and in the wild. Though you are unlikely to save a tiger in your own neck of the woods, you can help their team in their quest!

Home Sweat Home

It may be awhile before gyms begin to open their doors for your weekly fitness classes, a significant stress reliever for those avid gym goers. How many times have you walked around your neighborhood or paced the rooms of the house? Integrating creativity into any workout routine is essential to warding off boredom and repetition. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, many fitness organizations are opening their virtual “doors” to a variety of workout sessions, some that you may have been hesitant to attempt in real life.

A Game Night Remix

The essence of creativity has become more important now than ever in keeping the days occupied and minds sufficiently stimulated. Although webinars, phone calls and streaming platforms will never quite compare to the genuinity of in-person interactions, they will suffice for now. When all the movies have been watched, all the books on the shelf have been perused and all of the blocks in the neighborhood have been walked time and time again, what comes next? Luckily, there is no shortage of free entertainment at your fingertips. Game night is back and, just maybe, better than ever.

Run the Race from Home

The cancellation of events across the globe as a result of the coronavirus pandemic has left an undeniable impact on the organizations relying on funds raised from those activities. That said, the essence of creativity has transcended borders as communities team up to give back any way that they can. From the comfort of your own neighborhood and home, you can make a difference in North Carolina. Virtual races are popping up in cities and towns in order to support those organizations still doing the work they set out to do. Grab your running shoes, your registration packet and hit the open road!

Bringing Easter Home

Strolling through the aisles of the grocery stores, shelves are still packed with colorful candies, plastic eggs and baskets waiting to be filled with chocolatey treats. This year, Easter will have a new meaning for many and that will mean new traditions to be made. Instead of the annual Easter egg hunt, take your own spin on making the day a special one.
