Caring For Your Mental Health During Trying Times
ASI Wellness Warmline
Managing work, family, finances and a thousand other expectations have always been challenging before a national pandemic became the central focus of our lives. So how do we manage to take care of our families and ourselves during this stressful time?
Healthy thoughts and emotions are the foundation of good mental health. During these unusual times, it is even more important to protect yourself from overexposure to the endless stream of news and commentary that can increase anxiety and feelings of depression.
Emotional wellness should be your daily goal with every positive activity you do throughout the day being the self-care steps towards achieving that goal.
You Are Not Alone. We Are Here For You
Our Wellness Warmline Service can help you process those draining emotions and assist you in creating a healthier way to manage the stress in your life.
Many of our typical coping strategies like going to the gym or to the movies are not as effective as they once were. We find ourselves needing to learn new ways to cope with stress that reaches us on a deeper, more self-caring level.
Practicing stress-reducing relaxation techniques such as therapeutic deep breathing, journaling, and mindfulness activities can help keep your focus on maintaining calm. Sometimes sharing how we feel with a close family member or friend can also help us feel better.
Yet, sometimes overwhelming feelings of sadness, anxiety or other emotions make it difficult to function from day to day and that requires help from a mental health professional. A therapist can help you sort out your thoughts and emotions and teach you effective coping skills confidentially, without judgment.
If you would like to speak to a Warmline therapist, call our office at
