In just a few short months, the novel coronavirus crisis has impacted the world in unprecedented ways. With an estimated 1.6 billion globally left without a job, 647K loved ones lost, and a virus still very much active in the community, it is no wonder that we are seeing a 49% global rise in anxiety, depression, insomnia, and traumatic stress.
The global community is only beginning to process the various impacts of this pandemic. And depending on what our lives look like, each of us has had a vastly different experience of this crisis. We’ve seen how there’s no “one way” to get through it.
Whether you were defined as an essential worker working in health care on the front lines, in food production, or delivery, your experience is vastly different from someone who works from home to those who lost their jobs. And that’s okay – this where coaches come into play. Health Coaches can meet you where you are and help create a bridge between processing the present and defining a healthy, accessible future.
