It’s been almost three years since the world lockdown. And yet, despite things “returning to normal,” we are still dealing with the adverse side effects of the pandemic.
I was devastated when it was first announced that schools would close and everyone should stay at home.
I remember thinking, “what about those families where home isn’t a safe place?”
“What about the women who are going to be locked in with an abusive husband?”
“What about the children locked down with parents with marriage struggles, who witness lots of fighting and now whose parents can’t escape each other?”
This pandemic has inflicted a lot of psychological trauma that affected our mental wellness. And not only that, but it has also created more health issues.
Many women inside the Healing Rosie FB Group have lamented gaining 20-40lbs during the lockdown.
Not having a normal routine, not moving regularly, and being afraid and unable to cope well have led many of us to stress eat.
We’ve seen a lot of families broken apart, marriages disintegrate and people dealing with relentless depression and anxiety.
Collectively we are just starting to rebuild our lives from the ashes of a really destructive time, and many are still struggling to cope and recover their physical, spiritual, and mental wellness.
If you’re struggling, I want you to have some guiding light to help you find your way out of these struggles.
How do we manage all of this stress and anxiety and depression and the dissonance that we’re feeling in our heads from a really traumatic time? I invited Dr. Lindsey Elmore, a leader in the mental wellness movement, to show us how to reduce the risk of mental health challenges.
