Health & Wellness | February 12, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought on an increased amount of stress for everyone. As people have had to navigate extreme changes in schedules, communication, social life, isolation, and health management, they have also had to learn to handle the elevated levels of stress that come with such changes. For many, this level of stress is greater than anything they have experienced before, so typical coping strategies may not be as effective.
Stress can have a detrimental effect on a person’s physical and mental health. It can manifest in pain, fatigue, irritability, lack of motivation, sleeplessness, and many other symptoms. While living in a time when it is more important than ever to maintain good health, practicing coping strategies to manage stress is imperative. By developing tools and actions to reduce stress levels, a person can improve their quality of life.
Stress management should be tailored to each person’s individual needs and preferences. The first step is determining the best way to practice self-care. For example, exercise, good nutrition, sleep, and meditation are all common ways many people practice self-care.

"I made some good friends after moving to Clermont Park. My family loves it. They have also met a lot of good people here."
"Clermont Park is a great place to live. You can participate as much or as little as you want in community activities. You can meet as many people as you like, and they are generally open, so I’ve made a lot of friends in the short time I’ve been here. "
