As the number of COVID-19 cases rise, the anxiety of when things will return to “normal” looms. The uncertainty of the future can be overwhelming to think about. A shift in perspective can help.

We can’t change what is happening, but we can control our thoughts. Take time to regroup, breathe and enjoy what is around you. Practicing mindfulness, a therapeutic strategy to live in the present moment, can help manage stress.
