Most of us our rounding out several weeks isolated in our home. For some of us, this is just fine. For others, the isolation can be more difficult. On top of this, the information we receive about the virus, employment, school closures, and daily life in general is ever changing. It can create a sense of confusion and uncertainty that can lead to anxiety, depression, insomnia, or just feeling low.
Today, we’d like to offer up some resources that you may or may not already know about. They are a good way to stay connected, while staying apart, and keep mentally and physically active. As we’ve touched on before, being engaged/staying active can be very beneficial for mental health
Of course, proper mental health is not a “one size fits all” and I am not at all suggesting such. We want you to know that, although the office is closed, we are still here. We’re happy to connect by phone, text, email, or video chat; whatever is most convenient for you. Yes, there may be a barking dog (or 3) off in the background and yes, we all may still be in our pajamas at 3 o clock, but we will always have time available for our patients.

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth will find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” – Rachel Carson, Silent Spring.
