Another pandemic is a matter of when, not if, says Ashton, a physician and medical correspondent, and to increase the odds of surviving this one and the next, we must act on lessons learned from the respiratory virus COVID-19. In this strong follow-up to The Self-Care Solution (2020), Ashton gives easy-to-follow, DIY suggestions: drink water, laugh, connect with family and friends, exercise, lose weight, don't vape, and avoid "self-soothing" with too much alcohol and junk food. Humility is the spoonful of sugar that makes her medicine go down. Like so many Americans, Ashton gained weight two months into her quarantine. With this confession, she comes across as empathetic, not preachy, when she advises readers to try to lose weight and decrease their risk of dying from COVID-19. In a crisis, she says, think like a doctor, stay calm, and rely on facts. To become more resilient, think about what you've attained, not what you've lost. As her mother, a retired nurse, says, you can't control what happens, but you can control what you do with it. Useful and tested advice. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
