We have been doing the meditation and yoga stretches as time allows once a week, usually Friday’s. They are led by Terry McGarvey, NP, Head and Neck Surgery Department. It all started a few weeks after the COVID news broke and everyone was on edge with fear of the unknown, job and childcare situations, and worry about family near and far.
Terry inspired us to take 15 minutes of our lunch as she led us with her knowledge of basic yoga and breathing exercises. Usually there are between 4 and 7 people who jump in and take a few minutes for themselves.
I believe it enables us to learn how to take time out for ourselves, and to share this with our families so that we can all learn to cope during this “new normal” that we are living through.
