Wellness Wednesday Tip

Posted by AnnaGrace Baldwin on 5/13/2020

This week's "Wellness Wednesday" tip is to take breaks from news media and social media. While it’s important to stay informed, non-stop exposure to stories about the pandemic may cause you to feel more distressed. Seek updates at specific times during the day — ideally only once or twice — and focus on getting information from credible sources in order to minimize speculation. Consider adjusting notifications or removing apps from your phone to limit your exposure. In addition, try not to compare yourself or your family to others who may seem more productive based on their social media posts. Everyone's family and situation are different. No two individuals, families, or households are exactly alike and it's important to focus on what makes you and your family uniquely you!
