Autumn is here!
Every season has its beauty, but nothing can compare to the beauty of autumn and watching the leaves turn into beautiful shades of red and gold. What a wonderful time of year for a scenic ride in the country, apple picking, hiking, bike riding, or whatever fall activities you enjoy to just unwind and get a break from your daily routine and some of the unfortunate realities of life.
If history has taught us anything, it’s that there is always going to be something stressful and difficult to deal with. The world’s problems, Covid, the flu, unfortunate news every day and more are still going to have to be dealt with.
We cannot let all these things define us. For the things we have no control over, we must stay strong and work on our thinking to cope. We need to stay focused, learn how to adjust, stay positive, and try to move forward in a healthy and positive way. We need to take care of our bodies and minds and embrace the joys of the life we have…that’s called coping!
There are always things that we can do, in our own little corner of the universe. And remember, our Coping Counselors are always here to help… click here.
So stay safe, enjoy and appreciate nature’s wonders and give our bodies and souls the beauty and bounty of what is fall!
A note to Seniors:
To all the seniors out there…you are not alone!
Aging is not easy. We all have concerns about how it is going to affect us individually. How do I accept my physical changes? How do I deal with loneliness? How will I cope emotionally when/if I lose my independence? How do I cope with losing a loved one, or friends that are passing from old age? Looking ahead to what’s in store for us physically, financially, and socially, and who will be there for us when we are in any times of need, are just some of the issues that seniors face on a daily basis. There are countless questions that seniors have that may make them feel that they are alone and have no one to count on for guidance.
Many seniors today feel like many others who believe that there is a stigma attached to reaching out for emotional help from a professional therapist. Luckily, times are changing and people are becoming more and more aware of how important it is to seek professional help. As important as it is to go to the doctor for your physical needs, it is just as important to see a professional to discuss your emotional needs. Everyone needs someone to talk to, especially seniors who are feeling lost and alone.
Reaching out for professional help to guide us on how to cope with this difficult and complicated stage of our lives is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength!
