Free resources for self-care during quarantine!
For many of us bodywork has been a touchstone (pun intended) of healing. Since we mostly cannot receive professional touch during this strange time, I want to offer some free resources for you to help you stay healthy and keep your body and household adaptable. Until we meet again…….
The amazing Maegan Megginson (MA, LMFT, LPC, CST, AASECT Certified) is offering videos for mental health support to calm your body, soothe your mind, and develop strategies to take good care of yourself and your relationship during these uncertain times. Here are two videos, but her website has even more resources, so please check it out. https://ccstpdx.com
How NOT to get divorced during the quarantine:
Turn quarantine time into organizing time with help from my friend Carolyn Rowe of The Move Makers! (https://themovemakers.com) She is offering FREE virtual workshops via Zoom every Wednesday morning at 10:00am for organizing and downsizing tips, answers to your questions, and camaraderie. She has other great resources on her website, too….. check them all out!
