Why Slow Down? 5 Benefits of COVID-19

If we’re being honest, the Corona Virus has had a large impact on our community, and suddenly being asked to stay home for the benefit of others can be a steep learning curve. American society is used to moving at a quick pace, without stopping. Now more than ever, it’s important to look after your mental health, and be kind to one another.

That being said, we believe that finding the good in each and every situation can do wonders for relieving feelings of anxiety and depression.

Here’s our list of 5 benefits to slowing down during this season!

We’re putting first things first.

Do you remember those goals we made at the beginning of the year? We’re thankful for this time to reprioritize what gets our attention!

We’re able to see clearly.

The first few days of social distancing can be tough, but now that we’re used to it the fog of fatigue is beginning to dissipate. We’re ready to come back to our normal lives with a new sense of purpose!

We’re (truly) connecting with those we love.

It’s easy to get caught up in the sweet by and by, but now that we have this time to slow down we’re able to pick up the phone and rekindle old relationships, or really take a moment to spend time with those closest to us!

We’re getting physically strong.

We never notice the toll that living a busy lifestyle can take on our physical bodies. We’re able to eat better, go on low impact walks, and help our bodies restore.

There’s more to give.

Simply put, when you feel taken care of it’s easier to take care of others without feeling resentful. Who else finds it easier to be patient during conversations?

Sometimes the best way to shake off excess blues is to count the things that are going for you. What are you thankful for in this season?

If you or a loved one is struggling, it’s okay to ask for help. A member of our team would love to speak with you!
