Of course, I hear about stress, depression, anxiety probably more than most people, and I hate to write this, but considering our current situation, this is to be expected.
If you find that you're on social media, your tablet or laptop, the cellphone, and texting more than before Covid, you're not alone. If you're going to be on these devices, do me a favor, and on a daily basis, write down three (3) items that went well for you on any particular day. It could be a recipe. Or, a movie you watched on Netflix. Let's face it, we dedicate 2-3 hours watching movies; that's a considerable investment of your time. If you enjoyed it, list it on that page. Even if you took a satisfying nap during the day, list that as well on your list.
What are you doing to take care of yourself?
Are you seeing your friends face to face? It's important to do so. Wear your mask, keep the social distance, but by all means, take advantage of the Season and spend time outdoors...on porches or decks.
And, if you're feeling stressed, depressed or anxious, slow your breathing by concentrating on how you breathing. For a good 10 minutes, slowly breathe in through your nose for a count of 4, and at the same rate, breathe out through your mouth. Be aware that you are now relaxing. You have the power to take charge of your emotional state. And with that, the ability to utilize this aid whenever need be.
