Resources for Mental and Emotional Health
Dear Neighbor, I am very concerned about people's mental and emotional health during this time and want to share any resources that may help. Prioritize sleep, exercise, and keeping a routine; try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals; stay connected to people, over the phone and virtually; and practice breathing techniques. It is also important to take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Below are resources to help with mental health during this time. One thing I do to unwind and reduce anxiety is to use the Headspace app. There are some free mediations here. Online Meditation and Yoga Dana Rysavy, a District 6 resident, is hosting community meditation & chair yoga for the next few weeks via Zoom. They will be from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m., March 23rd to April 3rd, on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Join Zoom Meeting here. Meeting ID: 869 209 933.
