Saying Thanks and Staying SafeWe have all seen the news and stories about the difficulties and disappointments that have happened this year—it has been a year of cancelations and changes in plans. That said, the holidays are nearing, and you can’t cancel Thanksgiving! Even in what has undoubtedly been a challenging year, we can still find plenty of reasons to be thankful. At Holbrook, we prioritize health, wellness, and happiness. Throughout our many locations, our community has so much to be thankful for. As Thanksgiving nears, let us take a look at the ways to celebrate while staying safe.
Doing The Right Thing Can Be LonelyHumans are social creatures. It’s in our nature to come together both physically and emotionally. But when staying apart becomes a matter of public health, it’s equally natural to feel isolated and lonely. Social connection is an important aspect of overall wellbeing. The longer the isolation, the higher the risk of developing depression or anxiety. Don’t let this scare you, though! There are many ways to combat this, and people have been finding new and creative ways to stay engaged and productive no matter the circumstances. Here are just a few great strategies for staying connected during quarantine. Note: If you're feeling a persistent sadness or anxiety that interferes with day-to-day life, consider talking to a therapist, which is also available online.
Holbrook Community Says "Don't Let Covid-19" Keep You From Good HealthIt's true, the Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on everyone's lifestyles. Even the most happiest of introverts can find themselves questioning the contentment of such a long period of time in quarantine. But for active senior adults, this period of isolation can actually become one of the best events to ever happen for their better health. The key is finding your personal active lifestyle, within your own living space.
Covid-19, We Have A Lot To Learn
Friends, there is so much we don’t know about this virus. And we may not know for years. However, there is a lot of evidence-based protocols that stimulate the immune system, prepare it to fight viruses and raise its ability to withstand an “attack” on the body. Viruses like cancer cells, are always in the body. It’s the ability of your body to fight this with faith that gives you hope.
