The current climate can be confusing and stressful, and figuring out how to balance all the changes can be overwhelming. If you’re feeling that stress, remember that it is a natural response. We are all being forced to slow down and many of us are working from home for the foreseeable future. 

To help manage through this challenging time, we consolidated tips and resources to practice self-care – because you need to be as kind to yourself as you would be to others.

Sleep
