Finding Inner Peace Amidst COVID: Take 5:

May 7, 2020

HAVEN is dedicated to the health and wellness of all healthcare professionals. Our mission and vision is to promote and support the health and wellbeing of our Connecticut health professionals. Never in our lifetimes has the wellness of our community been under such siege.  We see stress and uncertainty in every area. Never have we felt so helpless.

Guided Imagery and Meditation audios are ways to reduce anxiety, promote better sleep, and alleviate stress.

We all need to take some quiet time for ourselves. These meditations and affirmations were selected with healthcare professionals in mind. They are all under five minutes. They can be listened to with complete anonymity and to whatever extent works for you. Using these research-based skills has shown to lower stress, promote better sleep, and enable positive energy and calm which are desperately needed during these turbulent times. 

 

These are a gift from HAVEN to you, our healthcare community. They will be available for unlimited use for one year from May­­ 11, 2020.
