Covid-19 Wellness Toolbox

COVID-19 Wellness Toolbox

Hello friends and fellow health professionals!

Our world is changing every day.  Many of us are scared what the future will hold. How sick will our communities get? Will our hospital have the resources? Will we be able to take care of our families?

In this time of uncertainty, during this pause in life, we need to find ways to continue to move our bodies, breathe, connect with others, find humor, laugh, cry…we are caregivers but we are also human. It is a long road ahead. After spending the last week creating our own Wellness Toolbox for the MedTreks and HopeCore staff, we decided to share these resources with you. Hoping that you find time and space to fit even small routines of wellness into your life. We hope you find it helpful! Thank you for the work that you do, each and every day!

With gratitude,

The MedTreks Team
