Managing Stress and Anxiety during COVID-19

While the Roaring Fork Valley provides respite from day-to-day worries with its endless trail systems and legendary slopes, the truth is no one can escape the stress and anxiety the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to every corner of the globe.

During such a fraught and unprecedented time, when the unknown seems to be the only constant, it’s important to keep tabs on our own mental health, and the health and wellbeing of those around us.

Social distancing can leave us feeling lonely. Not being able to celebrate with family and friends can cause us to feel disconnected, and missing major milestones such as graduations, birthdays and weddings is simply sad. Of course, there is also the stress that comes with worrying about getting sick or being sick, especially for those who are more vulnerable.

 

Aspen Valley Hospital encourages every member of our community to take advantage of these mental health tools and support systems, and to reach out if you or someone you know is struggling.
