Reflecting on some of the challenges and learnings presented by the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, we look to the Global Wellness Institute (GWI) and their authors for research into ‘Mental Resilience in a Time of Stress and Trauma’.
The white paper prepared by Lawrence Choy, MD, Gerry Bodeker, PhD, and Melisse Gelula, who represent the Mental Wellness Initiative of the Global Wellness Institute, is an effort to better understand wellness as a concept and in practice.
Today, we are confronted by an unprecedented reality of daily life without prior tools, in many people’s experience, to be able to deal with the ups and downs of what is being called our ‘new normal’.
Although mental stress is affecting everyone, whether or not they have been directly affected by COVID-19 or not, we must find ways to support ourselves and one another through the trenches and celebrate the triumphs of this time ahead.
With all the changes we are going through, the ability to bounce back from stress or adversity is important throughout life, especially in our older years.
We have shared a paper from the GWI’s white paper series and hope you find it expansive and informative.
If you feel you are in need of any other support from mental to physical, book a teleconsultation with our doctor.
