The COVID-19 pandemic can feel daunting due to uncertainty in virtually all areas of your life. It is important to pause for a moment, collect your thoughts, check in with your emotions, and remain calm. It is normal to feel stressed or overwhelmed during these ever-changing times. Emotional responses may include anxiety, fear, anger, and sadness. You also may feel helpless, discouraged, and occasionally out of control. Taking care of yourself is important so you can be equipped to be present for and engaged with your family and your work.
Mindfulness is about being fully aware of moment-to-moment thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations in regard to whatever is happening without the lens of judgment. Mindfulness is the practice of observing, watching and examining, and becoming aware of our authentic self, all to cultivate a still calmness within. Mindfulness involves a set of techniques and methods for systematically developing this awareness.
