Notes from the Counselor -- December 2021

Business as Usual ... Not so much!
Though many things seem "back to normal", some things are not. As a result of Covid-19, all adults and children have experienced increased stress. Last school year we faced the challenges of virtual learning, adjusting to new and constantly changing routines, and anxiety and fear over the virus. At times, we were coping with the confines of quarantine. Some of us were faced with financial impact on our families and many of us missed birthday celebrations, graduations, and other milestone events. Some families had members who were sick with the virus and some of us experienced grief over people who did not recover.
Going forward, all of us need to be aware how stress affects our lives and our children. We need to watch for signs of increased bodily complaints, changes in eating and sleep habits, and increased irritability, anxiety, and depression in both our children and ourselves.
These are challenging demands on all of us but the future is looking brighter! We now have vaccines, booster shots, and, hopefully, new medications available soon to combat the virus and its variants. In the meantime, enjoy the holidays, stay warm and safe, and know you can reach out to me should you need any assistance.
