COvid Fatigue

I don’t know about you but I know I have Covid Fatigue! It is a trending, it is real and it’s strong. We are tired of staying inside, being careful and being scared! A few months ago we were making progress with this virus, fast forward to today and it appears that all hell is breaking loose! You add the holidays to the mix and it seems like a recipe for disaster!

Facing this fatigue is so important for our personal health! We are certainly living in challenging times and there are no easy solutions! Definitely wearing a mask, washing your hands and keeping your distance from others will be a big part of the solution!

During these uncertain times here are a few other things that might help us all navigate through our fatigue and the holidays. Taking a simple walk and getting some fresh air will be so helpful. Talking about your feelings with friends or family is important too! Sometimes the internal conversations we have in our heads are just not healthy! Truly expressing our feelings is such a relief. Finally, helping others is always a good thing! Donate to local coat drives, food drives and toy drives. Giving back is great for your community and for your heart and mind!

I am personally, going to try to listen to the news a little less and stay in the present moment more! I am going to remember to take a breath and exhale! I am going to say thank you to the people who are wearing a mask and not focus on those who are not! I cannot control everything, even though I wish I could! LOL! Finally, I am going to continue to have FAITH that there are more happy and healthy times ahead of us!

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness
