Around, Around, Around it Goes, How COVID-19 Ends, Nobody Knows.

How many people remember watching the Merry-Go-Round at the fair? You would focus on one of the vibrant, coloured horses and point it out every time it made its’ way around. With the last year our lives seem very comparable… going around and around in the same circular motion and only focused on one thing: the pandemic.

According to CAMH (Centre for Addiction and Mental Health), “COVID-19 is having a negative impact on Canadians’ mental health, with many seeing their stress levels double since the onset of the pandemic. People are struggling with fear and uncertainty about their own health and their loved ones’ health, concerns about employment and finances, and the social isolation that comes from public health measures such as quarantining and physical distancing with the lack of socialization.”

A great quote to reflect on is one by Eleanor Roosevelt “In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”

This quote is a great reflection of how we spend our time, whether in a pandemic or not. How do we invest ourselves and our energy in relationships, health, self-development, and many other factors of our lives? This is a time to keep your mind focused on yourself and what makes you happy. There are many FREE opportunities offered online that you can take advantage of ie. Yoga, art, coffee club, aerobics, etc.

Keeping active and getting involved can bring opportunities, purpose and something to focus on other than our current living conditions. Get busy and keep your mind distracted with things that will improve your mental heath and well-being.
