PODCAST: 10% Happier Podcast.  How to Handle Coronavirus Anxiety: Special Addition

One of the best things we can do for ourselves when we're feeling stressed or anxious is to spend time in nature. Taking a walk in nature is even better! Try going to a Metropark or other walking trail. Don't forget to keep your social distance from other walkers!  Click on this link to the Cleveland Metroparks Trail Maps. The zoo and nature centers are closed due to COVID-19, but you can still utilize the trails.

Chagrin Yoga is offering free online classes. You can find them on the Chagrin Yoga FB page or on their website, https://chagrinyoga.com/. In addition to full yoga classes, they have some short stretching videos. If you've been intimidated to try yoga in a group setting, this is a great opportunity to try it out! I'd recommend you try a "basics" or "slow flow" class if you're a newbie. You'll be hooked!

What's one of the best, if not THE best, way to alleviate stress and tension? EXERCISE! See this list of FREE online exercise classes during COVID-19-related gym closures. You have to pay for these classes during "normal" times and many of them aren't usually offered online. This is a great chance to try out something new!   For free!
