Touch and Touch Deprivation in a Pandemic
Happy New Year!
I am so grateful to you all that you've been with me on the journey that was 2020 and look forward to our connections throughout 2021! 2020 was challenging for us all. As we enter the first few days of 2021, I know that the pandemic isn't over and we are still facing many challenges. My wish for you in the new year is self-compassion, glimmers of joy, and acceptance for those emotions that feel less pleasant. I know we are still in it right now but I'm grateful to see a light at the end of the tunnel and to have you all in my world during this time. Here is a link to a page of resources I created for you when we first began navigating the pandemic. This includes a link from the CDC on managing stress and anxiety, domestic abuse hotline, a crisis hotline, recommended therapists, a meditation, and yoga for anxiety. I'll add more to the list if I find anything and don't hesitate to let me know if you have anything you think should be added: Client Resources I had been thinking for a while about what people need to hear right now and this is what I've come up with! Below you'll find a video I created called Touch and Touch Deprivation in a Pandemic. Here you'll discover: 1. Why physical touch is so important 2. Find out if you could be touch deprived. 3. What you can do about it ( even if you live alone) Please feel free to share it with anyone who you think could use this info right now! As I said in the video, if you are looking to give a massage or a better massage to your partner or kids or looking to help your partner give you a massage or a better massage schedule a virtual partner massage lesson. I've always offered lessons in person but since I can only have one person in my office at a time, I am offering this virtually! It could be a fun thing to do for Valentine's Day or a birthday or just to start incorporate more positive touch into your life! If you're tense, in pain, or just looking to feel better in anyway- book your massage today! If you're looking to make a change in your life, in any way- a goal to reach, a persistent issue or conflict to resolve, coaching can help! Effective coaching tools + body centered tools = results for you! Book a free coaching consultation today! Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, concerns, or comments! Cheers to 2021! Eileen
