How does the COVID-19 situation impact my body, mind and spirit?

Posted in Community

A whole new world, a whole new language, a whole new way of being!

As the ripple effect of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold globally, and in our community, it is quite natural for people to experience a wide range of thoughts, feelings and reactions, including: 


These experiences are all understandable when there is so much ‘not knowingness’. There has been loss of life, swift changes to our way of life and disrupted plans due to social distancing. People are naturally concerned for their own and their loved ones’ health and safety.

It is important to acknowledge the seriousness of the impact COVID-19 has had on our community. It is equally important to be mindful that reacting from a place of panic and fear is usually unhelpful, especially in the long-term. Looking after our wellbeing will help to reduce stress and is vital in enabling us to take a calm approach to our daily lives.

Body Mind Spirit blogs will offer you an array of strategies deal with the current situation. We shine the light on different perspectives, inviting different ways of seeing things.
