A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM WELLVIEW MENTAL HEALTH SPECIALIST, COLEY WILLIAMS:
We are living in a very weird time, to say the least. It’s likely that your feelings are currently tangled up and hard to identify. You may feel that tangle as a knot in your throat, and the knot is real. When our feelings are lost in a tangle, we can’t make choices with our thinking brain. As we’re in the midst of the COVID crisis, it’s normal for our reactive brain to take over and make decisions for us.
It’s simple to access our thinking brain when things are business as usual. Our thinking brain can use logic and decide that it’s not a great idea to stay in bed all day or binge your favorite series for the third time. But, when our reactive brain kicks in, it works on autopilot and steers us to choose what feels more comforting right now. This is exactly what Mental Health Care addresses. It helps you to untangle the emotional knot so you can choose a better response. Now is the moment to invest time in your Mental Health Care so you can:
- Slow down your thoughts.
- Identify your feelings.
- Understand how your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors work together (for or against you).
- Process your experience.
- Build awareness.
- Respond thoughtfully.
Wellview Mental Health Specialists are eager to help you untangle the knot so you can respond with your thinking brain during the COVID crisis...and beyond!
