Mindfulness Group for COVID Long-Haulers
COVID long-haulers - those whose symptoms have persisted beyond what's considered "normal" - face unique and unprecedented challenges.
In addition to a wide array of physical symptoms, you're faced with fear and uncertainty about the future, lack of adequate medical knowledge and resources, stigma and ostracism, dismissal and disbelief that your condition is "real," and stress about jobs, family responsibilities, finances, and more.
As a long-term survivor of fibromyalgia, thyroid disease, and digestive disorders, AND as a professionally-trained health coach, I can relate to all of it, personally and professionally.
To help and to give back in this unprecedented crisis, I am offering a small-group, online program: Mindfulness for COVID Long-Haulers.
This program is designed specifically for people experiencing extended symptoms from COVID-19.
Mindfulness can improve nearly every aspect of physical and mental health, according to extensive research.
This program has three main objectives:
1) Provide affirmation, support, and live community for long-haulers
2) Provide concrete guidance and coping strategies
3) Provide an introduction to mindfulness and teach practices you can do on your own. The practices will be customized to suit your needs through interactive group coaching.
Here are the specifics:
60-minute meetings via video conference, once per week, for eight weeks (with an option to extend)
Meeting content will include:
introductions and telling your story
resources and strategies for coping with your unique situation
instruction in mindfulness practice and resources for continued practice
