The coronavirus pandemic has caused many of us to do all sorts of new things remotely, with mixed results. Do you order pick-up on the curb from exclusive restaurants? Good. Zoom meetings with children running naked through the background? Less good. Virtual learning? Impossible. But as you continue to adapt to a more virtual life, it's worth taking a look at Haven Life Plus – a rider (think bonus feature) full of partner services available to qualified Haven Life customers – with fresh eyes, to see what it has to offer during these challenging times. Everything that is included is meant to add value to your policy by making life less difficult. (And who could not use it right now?)
Here are six things you may need right now, and how Haven Life Plus can help.
You need more training
The US response to Covid has varied considerably from state to state, so you may live in an area where gyms are open, or you may be in a place where they remain closed and feel as a distant memory from Before Times. For those who can not go to the gym or rather do not want to, Aaptiv is a game changer. The training app has training sessions for everyone, from the dedicated gym steering wheel to someone who just wants a reason to get off the couch for 1
You need easy access to your important documents
As things slowly start to open up again, you may need some documents – for just one example, immunization records to send juniors back to school. LifeSite, which is included free of charge in Haven Life Plus, is basically a secure filing cabinet / safe / vault where you can store all your family's important documents and access them anytime, anywhere (even from your in-laws from your laptop Suffice it to say that this time is full of unexpected twists and turns and not having access to important information for work, school, travel or in an emergency can cause all kinds of unwanted headaches.
It is also handy if you are not currently in your home due to the pandemic – maybe you are one of those people who hunts with the family in another state and tries to work and homeschool remotely in someone else's house. – journals, your will, life insurance or any other insurance – and that document is in the filing cabinet at home a few thousand miles away, maybe you wish you had another system.  You must meet a doctor
Even before Covid, telehealth – which visited your doctor practically through the warm glow of a computer screen – increased in popularity. For many people, it has now become necessary, a way to get medical guidance without taking the risk of going to a personal medical clinic or hospital.
Haven Life has arranged for Plus members to receive a 15% discount from MinuteClinic, which offers a wide range of family health services, many of them virtually. For the services that require you to physically go to a clinic, MinuteClinic requires no appointments and is available in many Target and CVS stores, so you can find a place and time that suits you and be in and out quickly – and safely . Worth noting: Some MinuteClinics also offer Covid testing right now.
Your Relatives Need Help Organizing Their Lives
One of the biggest strains related to Covid-19 is the strains of others. Many parents of young children try to deal with the disturbance and anxiety that their children feel while doing the same for their parents. It's not easy. (Even getting your parents to use Zoom can be difficult). If your older relatives use their time at home to handle decades of paperwork (medical documents, wills, documents …) and find the experience overwhelming, they can use your LifeSite account to create a neat, easy-to-use archive of their important document – and if you are a Plus member, up to five family members can use it. It will be a lesser source of stress for them and for you.
You realized you needed a will
When hundreds of thousands of people die of a new disease, it is natural to start thinking about your own mortality. So yes, it may be time to make a will and no, you probably do not feel like sitting in a law firm right now. If you have Haven Life Plus, consider solving the problem. Trust & Will is an online service that allows you to easily make a state-specific, legally binding will or create a trust if you prefer. Normally the service costs $ 159 (or much more if you are looking for a lawyer on your own), but it costs nothing for Plus members. Even in normal times, Trust & Will takes the stress out of making a will. In these abnormal times, the fact that at least one problem can be solved and solved quickly, immediately feels reassuring.
You Need Better Sleep
Several months into COVID-19, we have all learned that living through a global pandemic is quite stressful, meaning many of us do not sleep well. (Have you ever slept perfectly but now woke up in the middle of the night with existential anxiety? You are not alone.) Haven Life Plus has two solutions to this problem: Aaptive and Timeshifter.
Aaptiv, would normally drive you almost $ 100 a year, but it does not cost Haven Life Plus members either. Again, it is an exercise app, but we do not suggest that you use it to literally run into the ground so that you are exhausted in your sleep. Instead, Aaptiv also has many meditation programs that help you stress and function better during the day. In particular, check out the guided meditations that are specially designed to facilitate you for a healthy night of well-deserved sleep.
Timeshifter is an app that takes a scientific method of managing jet lag by giving you clear, up-to-the-minute instructions on when to see or avoid bright light, when to drink coffee, take a nap or sleep. You may be wondering why it would be useful right now, since most of us avoid air travel. For some of you, you may have been waiting for the viral storm by bunkering with a relative in a different time zone. Or maybe you're one of the many RV-RVs across the country right now. And even if it's called jet lag, not RV lag, for a reason, even a night or two of rough sleep is a night or two for many. Timeshifter provides tips on when to limit your light exposure so that your body is better prepared to fall asleep at night. This app was created with input from a neuroscientist at Harvard, but it will cost you significantly less than tuition at that August institution. Haven Life Plus members enjoy it for free – valued at $ 24.99 annually.
