Coronavirus Pandemic

Coping While We Shelter in Place

During this coronavirus pandemic, all of us are dealing with challenges and disruptions in our normal lives. This added stress can increase conflicts and make everyday frustrations feel worse than usual. However, these challenges also give us a chance to focus on what is most dear to us. I encourage you to schedule time for what matters most to you.

One of my goals is to continue to provide help and support to my clients during this crisis. In mid-March I switched from face-to-face office visits to phone and video meetings. This has proven to be a good way for my clients to continue our work together.

I would like to share a few strategies to help you while we are sheltering in place:

  1. Keep informed. Don't waste time with opinions, rumors, and political arguments. Listen to medical experts (infectious disease, public health, epidemiology, virology, immunology) and follow their advice. Facts matter.
  2. Stay in touch with family and friends. Reach out to people each day. Phone and video calls are great ways to connect.
  3. Practice your communication skills. Average skills will not get you through the tough times. Practice listening deeply with no expectations, judgments, or distractions. Practice being honest, specific, and clear about your what you want and don’t want.
  4. Schedule your time each day and keep a regular schedule for waking up, going to bed, eating meals, and doing things that are important to you.
  5. Get exercise. Do anything that gets you moving and breathing. Go for walks outside. Put on some music and dance! Do yoga or Tai Chi or aerobics.
  6. Pray or meditate daily. Get quiet. Let go of expectations and agendas. Relax and just breathe. Do this outdoors when you can.
  7. Be gentle with yourself and your loved ones.

If you feel the need for guidance and support, I encourage you to schedule a phone or video meeting with me. During the month of May I am offering a 20% discount. Payments can be made on your credit card through PayPal.

Take care of yourself and stay healthy!
