Dealing with so many unexpected stressors that we’ve never experienced before can have a huge impact on every aspect of our health.
Stay indoors for long periods of time and away from usual social connections can also leave us feeling isolated and a bit anxious. That’s why now, more than ever, it’s important to put some additional time into practicing intentional self care.
As a dear member of our Primal Harvest family, we want to check in on you and make sure you are healthy and safe.
Keeping your mindset positive and finding healthy ways to manage emotions is actually just as essential as keeping your immune system strong with a balanced diet and immune-supporting supplements.
This can be done by keeping your mind busy with fun projects, meditation, journaling, reading, doing an indoor workout or yoga class, taking a relaxing bubble bath, baking, or anything that brings you joy and lowers stress levels.
Taking moments to pause and just breath can be hugely helpful for decreasing stress.
As a nation so full of heart, Americans all around the country have been coming together and connecting in so many different ways recently. With all of the negative, fearful, and false ideas circulating in the news and on social media regarding the pandemic, we wanted to take the opportunity to spread a bit of positivity during this challenging and uncertain week.
These random acts of kindness and online enrichment inspired by the current health crisis have been coined as “caremongering” by social media and, beginning in Canada, have now spread across the U.S. We hope these generous acts may help lift your spirits today!
