Please provide each other with recommendations during this global pandemic.
Last month, when the COVID-19 was broken out in China，most of people were isolated inside.Shanghai Chenshan Botanical Garden using new media such as cellphone APP,DouYin(known as Tik Tok internationally) and Weibo (Chinese Twittle) to advocate blooming Oriental Cherry( Cerasus sp.）The short video of blooming Oriental Cherry was viewed by 685,000,000 times on Weibo. The topic as #Blooming Oriental Cherry in Shanghai # was clicked to 3,000,000,000 times and more than 50,000 people wrote comments on it. New media is really a good tool to promote botanical gardens in such a difficult time.
One of the best ways to deal with the current situations (pandemic and other adversities) is try to keep the biochemistry of health in optimal conditions, in ourselves and all our collaborators.
Lark, S. and J. A. Richards (2000). in their celebrated book The chemestry of sucess. 6 secrets of peak performance, advise:
1 Regulate the body’s acid/alkaline balance.
2 Produce digestive enzymes efficiently.
3 Detoxify pollutants and other toxic chemicals as well as one’s own waste products.
4 Oxygenate tissues and cells.
5 Neutralize the chemical imbalances caused by stress.
6 Produce or restore sex hormones.
This hopefully will keep high the spark of life (jing, prana, etc.).
…and , as soon as it is possible, go out there to meet Nature, to embrace the whole life!
