Mental Health and Wellness During COVID-19

Taking Charge of What You Can: A COVID-19 Toolkit
The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed the way we live, work, and connect with each other in a very short period of time. As a world, we are experiencing a collective crisis, the likes of which most of us have never encountered. Right now it is normal to be experiencing a whole host of emotions, including anxiety, anger, sadness, and uncertainty. Our minds and our bodies are closely connected, so it is also likely that you are losing sleep and experiencing other physical symptoms, such as muscle tension, aches and pains, headaches, and low energy.
 
How will this toolkit help? We all need to find a sense of control right now. This toolkit is designed to help you focus on the parts of your life that you can take charge of and stop spending energy on the things you cannot control.
 

WHAT ARE WE WORRIED ABOUT?
