ADVICE FOR UNCERTAIN TIMES
Exurb from a Catholic Spirit (September 8, 2020) article:
Mental health experts offered the following tips for coping with stress related to COVID-19.
- Accept that the situation is tough and might continue to be for a while. Reach out to friends, family, counseling and medical professionals if necessary. Mental health is as important as physical health. (Father Matthew Malek)
- Seek connection with God. COVID-19 challenges can be numbing, so spend time with him. Meditate on God’s provision and protection through the psalms and Bible passages such as Matthew 11:28: “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Dan Stokman)
- Increase capacity to accept uncertainty through meaningful connections with others and prayer. (Dan Stokman)
- Control thoughts by practicing gratitude. The mind is a battlefield. Wake up and think of three things to be thankful for. In the evening, reflect on the day, identify three things that went well and thank God for them. (Melissa Nichols)
- Do acts of kindness. It can benefit the giver as much or more than the one receiving a kindness. Helping others can be the biggest action taken against anxiety and depression because the feeling of doing something gives more control over those problems. (Melissa Nichols)
