Below is a recent update from the Government of Canada, that I felt would be beneficial to our members. This pandemic has put a strain on all aspects of our life. Even our mental health.
Mental health is an essential component for living a healthy life and a main factor in overall health.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a profound effect on all of us, including on our mental health. To take care of it, you can:
- Set realistic goals for yourself.
- Accept yourself and others.
- Try new activities and hobbies.
- Prioritize your physical health.
Working on your mental health can increase your coping skills, improve self-esteem and resilience, and help create healthy relationships with others.
