Emotions & Thoughts

Pay attention to how you are feeling and what your body is telling you. The mind and body are interconnected, so the stress and worries we carry in our minds can also manifest physically. Focus on relaxation exercises to help you get back into your body and feel grounded. This also helps you disconnect from worries of the past and future and just recognize the present moment. By getting some headspace, you are better able to respond to and address the problems & stressors you are facing. I know this may seem hard to do when you feel like you already have so much to do and so much going on. But it is very important, especially now, to take care of yourself first! Try some self-care and plan activities into your day that you enjoy, check out our Wellness Room for some ideas.
