Stay Connected to Nature during COVID-19
With the guidance of our Board of Directors, we have taken immediate steps to join the global effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, asking our staff to work from home. However, rest assured that during this time we are still looking ahead to being able to host visitors at the Centre this season.
Our entire team at ABNC feels very connected to our community and our thoughts are with you all, please stay safe and healthy. Let’s support each other during this time.
It’s hard not to feel stressed and anxious, when all news items consist of COVID-19. Our lives dramatically changed within a short window, slowing our movement through our community.
So how do we stay connected and keep a calm presence during this time?
Here are a few reminders.
1. A breath of fresh air
Start your day with a deep breath and continue to do so throughout the day. Reach up to the sky to wake those lungs, muscles, and nerves!
2. Be mindful of how you are feeling
Check in with yourself. Are there certain parts of your body holding tension? Try stretching, or simply relaxing your shoulders.
3. Get out in Nature
Being outdoors, close to nature is proven to calm our minds and our souls.
4. Stay Connected to your community
Use technology to stay connected with loved ones, friends and neighbours.
5. Remain Healthy
Follow Social Distancing advice, wash your hands with lots of soap and water for 20 seconds.
