Surround yourself with people who get it!
Sometimes it feels good to listen to how others going through similar situations are doing. It can be enlightening to hear how others handle things, while also filling up your own tool kit of coping skills. If you’re looking for a safe space to discuss the impacts of COVID and receive support through it, our wellness groups may be for you!
Signs support groups may be helpful for you:
- You’ve been feeling lonely – These spaces are designed for people to be able to talk and share their experiences giving the opportunity to feel heard.
- It’s hard to discuss how you’re feeling with the people you know – Our groups are confidential and anonymous. This is a judgement-free zone, and we encourage our participants to talk openly and honestly about their feelings.
- The coping mechanisms you have been using are no longer working for you – We focus on different issues each day of the week and ways to cope with those specific issues.
- You feel like you don’t have time for anything lately- Our groups are virtual which allow for flexibility. You can be in the comfort of your own home – or really anywhere – to join.
The Online Wellness groups were created for participants to share their fears, frustrations, disappointments, and anger…as well as sharing their grief and sometimes – even their silence. Sometimes there is no perfect thing to say and just listening, being present, and accepting each other is the comfort we need. As a group, we hope for each other. We understand each other and support one another.
Whether you’re experiencing relationship issues or struggling with the long-term effects from COVID, there is no doubting that our lives have been shaped and changed in some way due to COVID. There are many practices we can add to our day to day to help us acclimate to these changes.
When you join a new support group, you may be nervous about sharing personal issues with people you don’t know. At first it may be easier to start off by listening. Over time, however, contributing your own ideas and experiences may help you get more out of a support group.
TIP: Try a support group for a few weeks. If it doesn’t feel like a good fit for you, consider a different support group or a different group format.
Hear and meet others like yourself who are searching for the knowledge needed to take their wellness to the next level. No one’s journey is exactly the same, but the underlying love, hopes, and dreams are similar. The fear, frustration, and grief are similar. Because we are all familiar with the challenges of COVID.
Remember you got to nourish to flourish! Part of taking care of ourselves includes being aware of our wellness needs and taking action to get the support we need!
