We care about you and want to help you maintain your well-being during this time. We are supporting our staff with ideas for staying healthy and want to share with you, our patients and community members, some of what we are sharing with our teams. Each week we will offer at least one area you can focus on to take care of yourself, with simple ideas to do from home or wherever you are.
Staying grounded and connected to others
No matter what happens, we can handle things best when we are calm and relaxed. We are able to think more clearly, make better decisions, and help those around us do the same. How can we stay grounded and feel calm when life feels confusing or difficult? Many people find it helpful to start the day with a few minutes of quiet, thinking about things they are thankful for and planning activities during the day that will create peace and happiness. Some people enjoy taking a walk or going outside near trees and nature. Others enjoy cooking or doing art to relax and stay calm. Staying connected to others is very important, too.
Call or email friends or family members and be sure to reach out to others when you need a little support. Whatever you choose to do, remember that we are together in everything that is happening, and we at La Clinica are always here for you.
Tip: Choose at least one thing to do each day that will help you feel calm and peaceful. Start with things you enjoy that are easy or familiar and work up to doing things that are new for you.
