As you know, Dr. Beau and Jamie Wright are available to you, and most counties now have Community Mental Health Veteran Navigators. Please make use of this support, and make certain you are taking care of yourselves as well.
For me, practicing self-care means meditation through knitting. I get to quiet my mind by counting stitches, and I feel productive as I have something physical to show for my “med-knit-tation” time. Giant crowd at the Michigan vs. Ohio State game making me anxious? Pull out the knitting!
Take time to do what works for you. Find the joy in this holiday season and recharge for another year in service to Michigan Veterans.
Happy Holidays, and thank you for all you do!
