Stay Healthy at Home
Taking care of ourselves and our mental wellness can be put on the back burner during difficult times. In these situations, it can be easier to focus on caring for others and sometimes we forget to check in with our own needs and our own struggles.
SUN members have received a very kind offer from a local yoga studio: three months of unlimited online yoga classes. Please check your email for the business' information and for the coupon code needed to claim this offer.
While using our phones and checking our social media can be harmful for mental health, some apps and websites are using their digital platforms for good. Ten Percent and HeadSpace are two apps/websites that can help you cope with stress, fear and anxiety and both are offering their services are free. Please check them out and carve some time into your day to take care of yourself.
