In times of crisis, it is important to manage your Mental and Physical Health.
First, and most importantly, you need to take care of your own health. Stay hydrated, eat healthy foods, get sleep, and maintain, to the best of your ability, your own personal self-care practices. This is key to wellness.
We know that the news about this health emergency can feel overwhelming and stressful. It’s important to remain informed and aware, but also to manage your stress and anxiety. Here are a few tips and practices:
Try to avoid speculation and look up reputable sources on the outbreak.
Take breaks from your news consumption: With smartphone apps, push notifications, and 24/7 news coverage, there is a tremendous amount of information available at all times. It's ok to take breaks.
Be cognizant of your social media use: Social media can intensify the effects that you feel from news and information overload. The seemingly endless stream of information can make it difficult to shift your focus. Give yourself a mental break.
Practice good stress management: Consistent and sound stress management practices can be an easy and effective way to mitigate news anxiety. Be sure to stick with practices that work for you.
This American flag (Betsy Ross) was drawn in first grade by my late daughter, Mona Daniella, who died suddenly and in a tragic way. Mona Daniella loved America, and she was proud to be an American. She was proud of her grandfather's Purple Medal (World War II), she was proud of how from a penniless peddler he had started a family business after the war, and had succeeded by working very hard. We are still a family owned company, (now a minority business woman owned.) Mona Daniella believed that women should have the same opportunities as men.
At the time one of her friends had sent us this quote:
"When a child loses their parents they become an orphan, when a woman loses her husband she becomes a widow, when a husband loses his wife, he becomes a widower but there is no word for when parents lose a child. Probably because there is no word to explain the amount of pain for the parents to go through after the loss. That's how awful the loss is." - Jay Neugeboren
So true. She is missed every second of the day. This is my first post since Mona Daniella's untimely death; and it is in her memory.
