Supporting Your Teen During the Global Pandemic
“CMSC – Self Compassion and COVID-19”
What can each of us do? This is where self-compassion comes in. Self-compassion boosts the immune system, it reduces anxiety, and it’s the easiest way to keep our hearts open to others. Some measure of fear is a healthy response to a contagious virus, of course. We want to respond to the contagion in a wise manner – with preventive measures that benefit ourselves and others.
A Care Package for Uncertain Times
A collection of podcasts, poetry, meditations and reflection for however you’re processing this moment.
At home, frustrated, and stressed — is ‘just being’ worthy right now?
So many of us are raised to believe that hard work is what makes us valuable; many of our professions and even our identities as helpers are on hold. How does self-worth interact with just being when we feel we’re doing nothing? Krista Tippett reflects on the problem with the phrase “just being” — and how settling inside ourselves right now, and kindness towards ourselves, are gifts to the world we want to make beyond this crisis.
“How To Stay Resilient And Mentally Healthy During The Coronavirus Outbreak”
Coronavirus and collective stress around the world. Why is this moment so anxiety-producing and how can we stay resilient in the face of it.
There is a tremendous amount of uncertainty in the world at the moment, more than many of us have seen in our lifetimes. Join author Elizabeth Gilbert as she talks about how we can meet our fear with compassion, and why now is the time to remember that humans are creative, resourceful, and resilient.
Meditation can remove stress and replace it with a dose of inner peace. It’s one of the best tools we have to balance our emotions, deal with physical and psychological distress, and promote the peace of the present moment.
Let us support you during these uncertain times!
“The pandemic experience is a massive experiment in collective vulnerability.
We can be our worst selves when we are afraid, or our very best, bravest selves.
In the context of fear and vulnerability, there is often very little in between because
when we are uncertain and afraid, our default is self- protection.
We don’t have to be scary when we are scared.
Let’s choose to be awkward, brave, and kind.
And let’s choose each other”
