JENNIFER: IN MARYLAND TOMORROW TOMORROW PEACE, NEW YEAR COMES NEW CHALLENGES IN RELATION TO ONGOING PANDEMIC AND MENLTA HEALTH. .DR GINA MAGGARR USSEL JOINS US TO DELIVER TIPS ON PRACTICE OF SELF-CARE. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. >> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. >> SO MANY PEOPLE FEEL THAT THIS WILL NEVER END AND IT CAN REALLY KEEP THEM DOWN. WHAT DO YOU HEAR FROM SOME OF YOUR CUSTOMERS? >> YES, I mean, I think all I hear from customers is the frustration of the ongoing pandemic. THEY KNOW TO FEEL LIMITED IN RELATION TO SOCIAL POSSIBILITIES, TO SEE FAMILY, TO TRAVEL, THAT ARE DEFINITELY BIG frustrations. I THINK FEAR AND DEPRESSION ARE REALLY SHARED EXPERIENCES FOR PEOPLE AS WE APPROACH THE TWO YEAR MARK OF THIS Pandemic. >> SO MANY PEOPLE LOST PEOPLE DURING THE Pandemic. WHETHER BY COVID OR ANY OTHER REASON, AND MAYBE YOU HAVE TRIED TO DO ALL THE RIGHT THINGS AND ARE NOT CLOSE TO YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS TO KEEP YOU SAFE. BUT YOU FEEL LEIK YOU HAVE MISSED THIS TIME. THAT IS HARD. >> YES IT IS SURE, AND SOME IDEAS I UNDERSTAND, YOU KNOW THAT MANY PEOPLE USE ZOOM AND FACE TIME AND DIFFERENT PLATFORMS TO TALK TO EACH OTHER. DURING THE HOLIDAY, I SOLD OUT THAT SOMETESIM CAN RECEIVE A LETTER A SIMPLE WAY TO FEEL CONNECTED AND ENJOY SOMEONE’S DAY AND SO CAN SEND PHOTOS AND LETTERS, SEND PICTURES AND LETTERS, TAKE PAPERS, TAKE PACKETS, TAKE PACKS, TAKE PACKS A WAY TO CONNECT THAT DOES NOT USE A SCREEN THAT WE BECOME SOME OF US TIRED. JENNIFER: SO TIRED. TBU IT’S BETTER THAN NOTHING. WE DIDN’T HAVE THIS TOO IN THE OLD DAYS. IS TIME OF THE YEAR, WE HAVE A FUTURE WITH SEASONAL DEPRESSIONS, THE DAYS ARE DARK, THE WEATHER IS COOL. BE A PERFECT EXAMPLE TODAY. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR THOUGHTS, HOW TO GET THIS. >> YES, THAT’S A BIG POINT. MANY PEOPLE FIGHT WELL SHORTER DAYS, WCHHI SUBMITTED OUR CIRCADNIA RHYTHM. IT CAN INTERRUPT HORMONES AND YOUR GENERAL WELL-BEING. ONE THING TO DO IS KEEP A ROUTINE. THE PANDEMIC HAS INTERRUPTED OUR WORK AND SOCIAL LIFE, TOO FOR PEOPLE WITH CHILDREN. AND THEREFORE IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO FOLLOW A ROUTINE. AND WITH THIS ROUTINE, TIME FOR A GOOD DINNER, TO KEEP A CONTINUOUS SLEEP CYCLE, SLEEP AND WAKE TIME. AND ALSO ALLOW TIME TO WORK PRODUCTIVE AND ESCAPE, AND TIME TO RELAX AND MAY BE ENGAGED IN TNGSHI ENY.JO HOBB BEES. UNDER THE THINGS I TELL MY CUSTOMERS THAT THIS IS A GOOD TIME TO TRY SOMETHING NEW, SO THAT THEY WILL BE INSPIRED. TRY A NEW HOBBY, COOKING, PHOTOGRAPHING, PREPARING FURNITURE, SOMETHING YOU DON’T HAVE TIME FOR WHEN YOU’RE WALKING EVERYWHERE. JENNIFER: DEBORAH WEINER STARTED PAINTING LAST YEAR, AND THAT WAS INTERESTING. THEY KNOW EVERYONE, I THINK, HAS TRIED TO TAKE OFF A LITTLE. WHAT BIG ADVICE. THANK YOU
