Taking Care of Yourself

Be Gentle With Yourself During the Pandemic

During this unprecedented time, we need to be gentle with ourselves.  We have never experienced a pandemic and it has caused us to suffer many losses that we don’t even recognize.

Please take time to ponder about your losses.  Having to shelter in place, we have a loss of community because we’re working from home and not going to work and interacting with co-workers.  We’re not going to the gym, going out to dinner with family and friends.  When we acknowledge these losses we must be gentle with ourselves.

Grief is the normal process of reacting to a loss. The loss may be physical, social, or occupational. Emotional reactions of grief can include anger, guilt, anxiety, sadness, and despair.  Grief is expressed in many ways and it can affect your emotions, thoughts, beliefs, physical health, sense of and identity and relationships.

We Can Never Lose Hope…
