These past weeks have been unsettling. It makes sense if it’s hard to concentrate or to take in everything that’s going on. It is important to make self-care a priority.
Breathe deep. Take a walk. Talk to your loved ones. Those simple acts can help us feel more grounded when we are stressed.
Here are some other ways to take care of yourself:
- Unplug from the news for a while.
- Play music you love.
- Practice a hobby that you enjoy.
- Read a good book.
- Watch a favorite movie.
- Cuddle with your pet.
And remember that taking precautions to keep yourself and your community safe from COVID-19 is also a way to take care: wear your mask, watch your distance, limit your gatherings and wash your hands frequently.
