Looking for an opportunity to take a break from your day? Try this “Band of Light” meditation with Candis Boiley from Show Me Hope and Tri-County Mental Health. She will lead you through this exercise which focuses on each part of the body. This is an invitation to become aware of your body and how each part is feeling while utilizing deep breathing.

During the pandemic, so much information is being released each day about the virus statistics, the vaccine, the job market, and so much more. From a mental health standpoint, it is incredibly important to ground yourself in the present moment so that you can give your brain a break and detach from the state of the world. Even a short break can do wonders for you mental clarity, emotional capacity, stress level, and productivity.  

Take this opportunity for your body and yourself. You won’t regret it. Find a quiet space, turn off any distractions, especially your phone, and take a break to rejuvenate your spirit. 

Know that the pandemic won’t last forever. We’re in this together. If you need extra support, Show Me Hope is here to help for free and anonymous crisis counseling.
