March 16, 2020

A crisis will make anyone's emotional state oscillate between panic and calm, THIS IS NORMAL! We are all going through various phases of grief as we experience this event. Anger, shock, denial, sadness... all the emotions you will feel in times like these are part of the process. Try to notice these varying and shifting states within yourself or others without judgment. Instead, greet them with welcome and compassion.

The following suggestions are not medical advice, but tips that may help in relieving some of the stress:
