Taking care of your mental and physical health is now more important than ever, as the uncertainties surrounding COVID-19 brings increased stress and anxiety. It’s easy to feel out of control and get caught up in the pressures of life – from adapting to all the changes occurring in the world. However simple steps, like taking a short moment out of your day to focus on your own mind and body, can help to reduce stress.
Nexus has been offering remote mindful movement sessions via Zoom, facilitated by Nexus’ Wellness Coordinator and Mindful Meditation Teacher Annette Marlow.
