Take a mindful hike
If you missed the first-ever San Antonio Missions SilentWalk earlier this month, you can still get in on the mindful experience. Download the "musical trip into mindfulness" from MindTravel and take your own silent walk or hike in a nearby natural setting. The 20-minute sample is free, and longer walks are available for purchase.

Donate blood for people in need
There’s no better time to donate blood. Local donation sites are taking strict social distancing measures to facilitate the process. Interested donors are required to make an appointment to manage flow and avoid overcrowding. Learn more about where you can donate blood and the safety precautions put into action on the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center website.

Order curbside from Pearl Farmers Market
Support local business and keep your pantry stocked while you’re at it. The Pearl Farmers Market remains open under strict safety precautions. While the market won’t resemble the typical experience, special accommodations such as online grocery preordering and curbside pickup are available.
Donate hygiene kits to fellow San Antonians
Looking for a way to do a little good from home? Create hygiene kits for San Antonians in need. Items of importance include hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, soap, bottled water, socks, feminine hygiene products, and non-perishable snacks. Locals are encouraged to package all hygiene items in plastic grocery bags and deliver them to their nearest SAPD SAFFE substation.

Take a selfie in a field of bluebonnets
Texas bluebonnets have arrived earlier than normal this year and fields are wide open and sprinkled with blooms. Venture out to a neighborhood plot and pose for a selfie with the state flower. Not sure where to find the closest cluster of bluebonnets? Check out this list of where to find bluebonnets in San Antonio from 2019 and enjoy social distancing outdoors in true Texas fashion.
