Thoughtful Reminders

Happy Tuesday! Thank you to all of our healthcare workers who have dedicated their lives to serve our communities!

This is a post dedicated to reminding us all about how important it is to keep practicing social distancing. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, many people have been practicing the mandatory six-feet of separation from people including loved ones. Though it may seem silly and not very beneficial, wearing a mask in public and keeping your distance from others can help stop the spread of this deadly virus.

To do our part, we should follow the guidelines set in place in order to help not only contain the spread, but to save the people who have dedicated their lives to serving others. Nurses, doctors, and other front-line workers have been separated from their families because of their passion to serve the community. As citizens, we need to do our part by staying home, washing our hands frequently, wearing masks and social distancing.

Since these guidelines have been set in place, many of us are feeling lonely and anxious. In order to get rid of this restlessness and despair, as a whole everyone must contribute to the control of the spread of this virus.

In the mean time, it is important to take care of yourself and your loved ones. Don't forget to keep up with a daily routine and get enough sleep. Reach out to someone you haven't talked to in a while or use social media to keep in contact with friends and family.

If you are feeling lonely or anxious about the virus or have experienced loss during this time, please reach out to New Leaf Counseling.

Stay Safe and Stay Home!
