Elephants And Tea - June 2020 - 43

you love to exercise? Walk? Read?
Example: "I love to read, but paying for books gets expensive. Fortunately I have e-library card and
can read books for free! When my
daughter naps, instead of worrying
about washing clothes, I sit in my
comfortable chair and read."
FIND STILLNESS: Some of you
might consider this "Me Time"...but
I don't. The way we take time to go
emotionally inward will vary from
person to person. Some of us pray.
Some of us meditate. Some of us sit
quietly and listen to music. What's
important is that you are tuning
into your body and mind so you can
relax and just be.
Example: "Ask your loved one to
leave you alone for 5 - 7 minutes
(whatever works for you). In fact,
set the timer. Turn off all notifications on your electronic devices.
Locate the room or space in your
home where you can be alone.
Practice Breath Sensing. Sit Comfortably. Keep a blanket on hand in
case you feel cold. Gradually and
intentionally inhale to the count of
three. And then hold the breath for
two seconds. And then gradually
exhale to the count of four. Repeat.
Practice the Breath Sensing exercise about five - ten times and then
return to normal breathing. It's
okay if you loose count. There is no
right or wrong here. Do what feels
comfortable for you. Take your
time. Relax. Be at peace."
REACH OUT TO OTHERS:
Now this might be a challenge
during Covid-19. We just can't hop

in our vehicle and go for a visit to the
local coffee shop. Do you or your
loved one need to interact with
another human? Perhaps you
can get some family or friends
to help out by joining in a
group "zoom" chat session.
Both of you need "time" away
from each other.
Example: "Have your loved
one take advantage of Elephants and Tea's Happy Hours
on Fridays at 5 pm EST through
the month of May.
CHECK OUT RESOURCES: I
am certain that you have more on
your mind than my simple suggestions. Please know that Elephants
and Tea has a great Covid-19 Resource Section to assist you and your
loved ones. Here is the link: https://

ALCOHOL, DRUG ABUSE
AND MENTAL HEALTH: These
are stressful times. Please be mindful
of your alcohol and drug usage. Talk
to your physician or counselor/social
worker with your concerns.
There is a saying that goes something like this: "If I am thinking
about how much I drink then I
must be drinking too much." The
literature states that women should
limit themselves to one drink a day,
and men two drinks a day. So, how
are you doing?
These are challenging times, and
I hope we can get through this together. So be kind to yourself and
in turn you will be kind to others.
Peace.
