Resiliency During A Pandemic

A perfect example of a dynamic system is YOU– a constantly changing, internally or externally motivated, physically, mentally, and emotionally needy being! 

This pandemic has challenged us all in our relationships with ourselves and with others. Being resilient is an important part of maintaining and nurturing these relationships and avoiding the negative side effects of feeling threatened. When you feel threatened, or like your basic needs aren’t being met, you may also feel…

Depressed, Anxious, or Isolated

That’s why it is so crucial to ACTIVELY put energy into yourself and staying socially connected to others. We want to highlight the benefits of controlling what you CAN control, and encourage you to NOT give up… because taking control and not giving up gives us peace of mind and strength. We want these emotions to fill your life on a daily basis…

Enlivened, Grateful, and Motivated

How can you work towards this?

  • Challenge your physical body by moving it each day, even when you don’t think you can.
  • Write down 3 things that you are grateful you can do for yourself on a daily basis.
  • Reach out to at least one friend you haven’t talked to in a while, each week. Even though we are physically distant, we can stay socially connected!

This is our call to action. It’s time to start having the same faith in you that we do. Take time each day to nurture yourself, appreciate others, encourage others, and build yourself up. Be tough– this pandemic is NOT the end of the world!
