Going into the month of April 2020 has brought with it a new set of temporary circumstances. It is easy to become overwhelmed due to COVID-19. Life has been flipped upside down for all of us, and majority of our profession is right in the thick of frontline response.
Taking care of our mental wellness is imperative in this novel environment. Whether it is isolation, working long hours, fearing for our families, or simply missing going out with friends, COVID-19 will likely impact our mental wellness at some point.
April's challenge is really to get things organized and into focus for the month. Take the time to consider what hurdles lie ahead and consider strategies that may help alleviate some of their burden.
Everyone will differ in what they need, but planning ahead will certainly set you in the right direction.
Let's take care of ourselves and each other!
