Rather than getting caught up on what we’re missing this year, I wanted to write a quick list to remind myself that the devil is in the perspective. Thanksgiving 2020 may look different - but it certainly isn’t ruined. In case you, too are feeling a little low this Thanksgiving, here's what I came up with.
My husband and I decided that 2020 would be our year to start a family and we were blessed to find out in early March that we were expecting our first child. Little did we know that a global pandemic was also on the horizon.
During a time when everything feels different it's easy to find yourself feeling stressed and overwhelmed. One way I'm coping with the current situation is by taking the time to form new, positive habits.
Whether you have been personally affected by the novel coronavirus or are feeling its effects - being asked to stay home from work and limiting your exposure to others - it’s important to make time for your wellness. Particularly, your mental health. These are some of the ways I’ve been prioritizing my mental health as a means of coping with this worldwide crisis.
