Taking Care of Yourself During Pandemics

Mental health professions are generally notorious for thinking about others and ignoring the well-being of our own selves. The disruption of regular daily activities can be a time for all of us to ‘reset’ and make some changes. Below are some websites focused on self-care during COVID-19.

The following basics are discussed: here

  1. Be good to your body
  2. Follow a schedule
  3. Be kind to your mind
  4. Find moments of stillness
  5. Share love
