The Importance of Therapy during the Pandemic

 

This year has been hard, unpredictable and incredibly stressful. We all experience an unprecedented level of anxiety, worry and uncertainty that isn’t going away any time soon. Just like COVID-19 is here for the foreseeable future, so is our overwhelm.

 

Most of us transitioned to working from home. Those who can’t grapple with the possibility of getting sick and bringing it home to loved ones. We are cooped up in enclosed spaces, with our spouse always nearby, and our children struggling to adapt to online learning. While technology is wonderful and has helped us all stay connected, it’s alienating to not be able to be with our loved ones physically in person. The impact ripples across generations, from grandparents who are separated from their grandkids to children missing their friends and their usual activities.

 

We are all stressed beyond measure and while some of us are managing, as the pandemic drags on, it gets more difficult. Chronic stress is a danger to your health that, when left unchecked, can lead to serious physical consequences. “Stress kills” is not an exaggeration over the long term.

In these very difficult times, taking care of your mental well-being is the most important. You simply cannot neglect it. Exercise, meditation, holistic nutrition are very helpful, but they work in the most effective way when coupled with therapy. All of us would benefit from a weekly therapy session!

 

Right now, taking care of your mental well-being is the most important. You simply cannot neglect it.

Consulting with a therapist doesn’t mean that you are weak or crazy. A therapy session is an hour of your time that you have only for yourself, the time to talk to an empathetic yet impassionate person who has your best interest at heart and yet is not the family that you see 24/7. For many people, therapy is not just a tool to self-betterment and exploring of emotions, but a way to just talk things through and let it all out—something many of us are unable to do otherwise.

 

A therapy session is an hour of your time that you have only for yourself.

The pandemic highlighted this urgent need to protect your mental well-being. The good news is that therapy is accessible. Therapy, unlike other treatments, can be easily delivered online, on Skype, on Zoom, or over the phone. Therapists and psychotherapists in Ontario embrace technology to help their patients during the pandemic, and the flexibility that’s offered by online appointments is unmatched.
