10 FREE Resources to Support Your Mental & Emotional Health During COVID-19
1. Social Distancing Serenity Kit by Melody Ross
“There is a lot going on in the world today. It can be scary and make you feel alone. So, I wanted to create this Serenity kit, just for you. Let’s use this time of social distancing to reinvest in ourselves and our own mental well-being.”-- Melody
2. Yale's Happiness Class
“In this course you will engage in a series of challenges designed to increase your own happiness and build more productive habits. As preparation for these tasks, Professor Laurie Santos reveals misconceptions about happiness, annoying features of the mind that lead us to think the way we do, and the research that can help us change. You will ultimately be prepared to successfully incorporate a specific wellness activity into your life.”

5. Unlocking Us Podcast by Brené Brown
I would highly recommend listening to the March 27th podcast: Brené on Comparative Suffering, the 50/50 Myth, and Settling the Ball
“We have collectively hit weary. This is especially true for the brave folks on the front lines of this pandemic and for the people who love and support them. And, it’s also true for all of us. In this episode, I talk about strategies for falling apart, staying connected + kind, and giving ourselves permission to feel hard things.”-- Brené
