Staying connected with people virtually

Good relationships are important for your mental well-being.

They can: help you to build a sense of belonging and self-worth; give you an opportunity to share positive experiences; and provide emotional support and allow you to support others.

There are lots of things you could try to help build stronger and closer relationships: try switching off the TV to talk or play a game with your children, friends or family; make the most of technology to stay in touch with friends and family; video-chat apps like House Party, Zoom.us,  IG & FB LIVE, and FaceTime are useful, especially if you live far apart.

Emotional Wellness & coping with loss –

Emotional wellness is the ability to successfully handle life’s stresses and adapt to change and difficult times. How you react to your experiences and feelings can change over time. Take care of yourself. Try to eat right, exercise, and get enough sleep. Avoid bad habits—like smoking or drinking alcohol—that can put your health at risk.

  • Talk to caring friends. Let others know when you want to talk.
  • Find a grief support group. It might help to talk with others who are also grieving. 
  • Don’t make major changes right away. Wait a while before making big decisions like moving or changing jobs.
  • Talk to your doctor if you’re having trouble with everyday activities.
  • Consider additional support. Sometimes short-term talk therapy can help.
  • Be patient. Mourning takes time. It’s common to have roller-coaster emotions for a while.

Food Suggestions:

What you eat is also important as a model.

Instead of restricting yourself from food or focusing on what you cannot eat. Let’s explore food. Let’s celebrate the various spices, cheeses, vegetables, meats, and fruits from all over the world. My favorite place to shop for food is the farmers market. I can count on one thing, FRESH! As a chef, I would love to hear from you.
