COVID Fatigue and Trauma:
A Journey To Wellness
Self Care Resources
Mindfulness – Adult Coloring/Art
Mindfulness involves bringing your attention to what is happening in the present moment, being aware of both your internal experiences as well as what you experience in the world around you… While you are coloring, be aware of your inner and outer experiences without reacting to them. The essence of mindful meditation is just to be present in the moment. Lawrence E. Shapiro, Ph.D. in Mindful Coloring
We encourage you to take a few minutes from your day to care for yourself: using words to express your life, feelings and experiences. Writing for 15-20 minutes, several times a week, can make a positive difference.
Toxic stress, trauma and COVID-19 fatigue affects all of us as individuals, in our families, at our schools, at our workplaces and in our communities. Therapeutic Movement and Yoga work to relieve the symptoms of this toxic stress and trauma. It has been found that neurosomatic movement programs increase brain and nervous system health and overall wellness for survivors of toxic stress and/or trauma. Each COVID-19 survivor and the communities they live in, can nurture their strength-based resilience and through therapeutic movement and yoga can experience restorative healing allowing them to regain their strength and balance after a pandemic.
Coming Soon! The Ecumenical Center will offer Therapeutic Movement and Yoga to the public to assist them to recover their wellness and balance after experiencing COVID-19 and subsequent COVID fatigue.
Music – Health & Harmony
Health and Harmony aims to help individuals foster wellness and relieve stress by learning or improving skills on a musical instrument. Students from ages 10 to 110 will learn how to play an instrument of their choice in a way that may support relaxation, well-being, and self-confidence.
