Watch for not-so-positive means of coping during stressful times?

Sometimes people use alcohol or other drugs, sleep too much, or use other not-so-positive means of coping. If you notice that, consider Wellness Coaching

MIX IT UP!

If you're staring at a screen too long, take a break, move around, and shift your gaze. If you have to continue to stay at your computer for school or work, make sure to use any breaks to do a quick stretch, get a snack or meal, or simply take time to sit without any screens, even if it’s just for 5 minutes.

If you're worried about the news, tune out for awhilE.

If you crave a change of scenery, take a walk, or if can't get outside, escape into a book or podcast.

Actively manage stress during Covid19

It’s important to notice when you’re stressed, to name it, and to acknowledge it. Just doing that helps us begin to relax and start to think of what we want to do about it.

Move your body. The recommendation to hunker down (colloquially speaking) does not prevent going for a walk or a run (assuming you’re not in self-quarantine, self-isolation, or sheltering in place). Movement is a great way to relieve stress, notice the big wide world, and get fresh air. Check out online fitness classes on YouTube or other platforms. For those who are currently in self-quarantine, get some fresh air by opening up your bedroom window or taking time to read on your front porch.

Sleep. Sleep restores us like nothing else. Create a sleep schedule to wake up about the same time every day, which can add some structure to your day and help regulate your circadian rhythm, so you'll feel more stable.

Practice mindfulness. Being mindful helps us to slow down and reduces anxiety. A few deep breaths can reduce stress. Notice nature, even in the middle of a city. Notice what you’re eating. Being mindful for one minute can be a welcome change from worries, and it can help us to focus on what’s truly important.

Tips for coping and practicing resilience.

Give grace. Stress uses up a lot of energy. You may feel unfocused and unproductive, and unsure of how to navigate the new "normal". Allow yourself to dial down your expectations of yourself and others a bit. It’s okay and normal to waver around as you try to adapt to the new circumstances of attending classes and working virtually. This is part of the learning curve. Give yourself and others grace.
