The autumn months are upon us in our beautiful city. Kids are going back to school, many people are returning back to work and the current pandemic is still on our minds. This is a great time to check in with yourself. How are you feeling?
I think we can all say that we are experiencing stress right now. Feelings of uncertainty, financial anxiety, job loss, changes to daily routines: the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting each one of us in some way. While it is tempting to hide on the couch eating comfort food, I know, eating the right foods during times of stress makes us far more resilient to its effects. We also have an increased need for nutrients like antioxidants and B vitamins when stress is high.
To our patients, friends and community. I hope each one of you and your family is doing okay during these difficult times. This is such a fast- moving situation with uncertainty. Many of us, including myself, are feeling anxious and maybe fear during this global pandemic. For me, there is comfort in knowing we are all going thorough this together and we are not alone. It is heartwarming to see how our global community has come together during this difficult time.
