FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Staying at home is the norm for Alan Candidito.
"We've been spending a lot of time reading, talking on the phone with friends. We have a daughter and two granddaughters here in town and we've got two dogs we need to take care of and get exercise," he said.
He's surrounded by family, but there's something he does that we all can do, be active.
You don't need a lot of people around for that.
Cheryl Hamel asked a friend to go walking this afternoon at Hamilton Park, six feet apart of course.
"My friend and I are continuing our routine of walking. Usually we do it at 6:15 in the morning, but today is her day off and we're out and about enjoying the beautiful weather,” Hamel explained.
Dr. Jay Fawver said you can fight isolation and depression with some of the free things nature has to offer.
Getting fresh air is one of them.
"I don't think people are going to come back to work burnt out. They're going to be ready to go. They're going to be grateful they spent time with their families. This is a marvelous time to go for a walk in the fresh air with their families. The governor's orders did not restrict getting outside and walking the park. He said we can walk in the park and go bike riding," Fawver explained.
