Stress Management through Mindful Techniques during a Pandemic-In Person
The COVID-19 global pandemic has likely brought an array of changes to how we, our co-workers and our clients live our lives. With these changes come uncertainty, financial pressures, altered daily routines and much social isolation. We may worry about getting sick, whether we will lose our jobs and how long the pandemic will last. Misinformation, rumors and information overload can make it unclear for many of us, what to do. Stress, anxiety, fear, sadness and loneliness are some of the emotions and feelings one might experience. Mental health challenges and disorders including depression and anxiety may worsen during this time. May of us are ill-equipped to manage the onslaught and increase in stress and symptoms which have presented themselves. Many people have increased their use of alcohol, drugs, eating, gaming and other addictive behaviors in order to manage the stress. In reality these “negative” coping tools can worsen depression, anxiety, panic and other disorders. Complicating the matter even more, those who use alcohol, drugs, emotional eating, etc. increase their likelihood of having worse outcomes if they get COVID-19. Factors which contribute are poor lung function, weakened immune system, increased weight-gain/higher BMI all of which increase the seriousness of complications from COVID-19. This training will address the impact of the Global pandemic on our mental and physical health, how this compares to pre-pandemic states and healthy coping tools which are helpful to us, our co-workers and our clients. Self-care strategies including mindfulness will be practiced during the training and information on motivating ourselves and our clients to learn to attain and maintain balance as well as sort through uncertainty during these challenging times.
