Taking Care of Yourself
CPN talks with counselor Mary-Frances Garber on staying calm and strong in the shadow of COVID.
CPN’s Blyth Lord talks with counselor Mary-Frances Garber, MS, CGC, on staying calm and strong in the shadow of COVID. “Anxiety is, really, fear of the future and I think what we are all dealing with right now is this fear of the unknown. … I have come to understand that what we’ve dealt with in our past truly influences how we deal in our present and our future, positively and negatively… Distancing yourself from [from the media and the news], trying to stay in the present, trying to focus on what do I need to do today really, what are my tasks today, what are some fun things I can do today. Really not going too far into the future.”
