Managing the Stress of the Storm
Welcome to week 4 of the Winter Wellness Challenge.
The Blizzard of ’22 has been enough of a challenge this week, so we have declared this a “no challenge” week.
We sincerely hope you are out of harm’s way as you read this. The most significant challenge you have had to contend with has been to keep yourself and your loved ones safe. Unfortunately, stress and threats to our safety take an emotional toll. Today we want to offer options for support and assistance as you manage the emotional impact this storm has had on you and your family.
Jennifer Schultz, EAP Clinical Services Supervisor and Anica Squires, EAP Counselor offer information in the video below. Watch:
Below are the handouts Anica and Jennifer referred to in the video above:
