Coping with the upheaval of our daily routine can be stressful any time. Coupling this disruption with uncertainty about the coronavirus creates an even greater trial. Behavioral Health specialist Jacob Bishop, MD, and therapist Amber Coffey, with Baptist Health Corbin, connect with Kerri by phone to offer some tips for self-care during these unprecedented times. They emphasize the importance of maintaining a sense of perspective and describe ways to practice mindfulness, experience gratitude, and shift our outlook when we become anxious or fearful. In addition, they explain how to recognize red flags in ourselves, our children, and other loved ones — and advise where to find help when we need it.
