For many of us, the gradual easing of lockdown brings longed-for opportunities (even if at a social distance) – to see friends, play sports, resume contact with family in ‘real space’ or get back to work that we value. But for many of us, even the happy, much anticipated changes can be difficult for our mental health. And for many others the prospect of coming out of lockdown when debate is still live about the science supporting it can be a real worry. This may especially apply to those more vulnerable to the virus and those of us with mental health concerns.
Here at Love Your Doorstep we have put together a list of great resources you can access locally that can help. Do not suffer alone.
Presence of Mind - Mindfulness Tuition
Mindfulness uses secular meditation practices, which can help to relieve stress and anxiety, enable people to feel present in their lives and improve focus and concentration as well as quality of sleep. It enables us to relate differently to things that cause stress - thoughts, pain, sleeplessness - and to manage our emotional responses more effectively.
