Mental health phases of the pandemic

#MentalHealthMonday⁠⁠Every week into this pandemic feels like another beginning of a new phase to me. Not necessarily a cut and dry phase... more like what you feel after experiencing trauma and grief - you have various feelings that will continue to come and go in waves over time.⁠⁠I was able to manage my anxiety better last week, and felt myself surrender to the situation and the changes it brought. But I still felt paralyzed and overwhelmed about how to move forward after losing significant income, etc.⁠⁠This week, I see more clearly, at least today I do. I can envision the beginning of a new plan, and have a little more hope, a little more confidence, a little more faith.⁠⁠If I were to use 3 emojis to describe my current feelings, they would be these: 🏽⁠⁠🏽How about you? Which 3 emojis best sum up how you’re feeling today? Drop them in the comments below! 🏽⁠⁠Remember, whatever you’re feeling during this time is normal. But... if you're really struggling with your mental health, please get help: ⁠⁠My partner, @mentalhealthamerica has a Crisis Text Line with Crisis Counselors ready to help you cope. Text MHA to 741741. ⁠⁠MHA also has a new website with lots of resources and information to help during the pandemic. Just click on the link in my bio and go to the "Mental Health America COVID-19 Support" button.⁠⁠Take good care. xx⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠#ichoosebeauty #coronaviruspandemic #coronaviruschallenge #coronapandemic #pandemic2020 #feelyourfeelings #anxietysupport #anxietymanagement #anxietyisreal #lookforthelight #healingjourney #healingtools #healingyourself #healingfromwithin #healingpower #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthhelp #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthcare #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthisreal #mentalhealthcommunity #mentalwellness #mentalhealthishealth⁠
