The COPE Series [Challenges and Opportunities in a Pandemic Era]
The COVID-19 pandemic, and resulting economic downturn, have negatively affected many people’s mental health. We, as a community, have to act now to address the mental health challenges happening during the pandemic to avoid long term consequences in the future.
JFS is bringing this issue to light by offering a four-part series of free online talks with mental health professionals and guest speakers called The COPE Series [Challenges and Opportunities in a Pandemic Era].
Part 2: Self-Care in the New Year
Thursday, September 14 • 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. • Online
In partnership with National Council Jewish Women – San Antonio
Self-care is the practice of caring for your physical, emotional, and psychological well being. When you take care of yourself, you are better able to take care of others and show others that you value yourself.
But with everyone’s busy lives and continued worry about staying safe during a pandemic, self-care is easier said than done. Join licensed therapists who will give tips, tricks and resources for how to:
1. Build a resiliency toolbox
2. Mindfulness exercises you can do anywhere
3. Easy yoga poses that will calm you down
4. And more
Main Speaker: Talli Dolge and Kristy Dean will teach you how to build a resiliency toolbox with their session “Resilience: The Ordinary Magic.”
