"Nearly 50% of Americans say they feel anxious about resuming in-person interactions post-pandemic."

As the world begins to slowly open back up and restore some form of "normalcy," it can feel overwhelming trying to reestablish certain aspects of our lives that have been subdued for the past 14 months.

LifeSpring's Irene Burks covered the concept of 're-entry anxiety' in her newest blog, where she discusses what to do if you find yourself struggling to re-engage

Can you relate?

We're not out of the woods just yet, so please be sure to get the support you need.

When was the last time you:
🔎 saw your primary care doctor?
🔎 met with a therapist to address your mental health concerns?
🔎 let someone know that you needed support?
🔎 engaged in enjoyable movement?
🔎 did something that helped you feel connected spiritually?

If your wellness needs have been put on the back burner, perhaps it's time to change that!

In case you missed our Instagram announcement, April is Counseling Awareness Month!

This year, the American Counseling Association is highlighting
...Self-Care
...Advocacy
...and Inclusion.

Each year, more than 1/4 of American adults seek counseling to address an array of concerns, including depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, and much more.

With the onset and continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as racial injustice and civil unrest, came a new wave of mental health concerns across the country.

46% of adolescents and young adults (Gen Z) reported experiencing a decline in mental health over the past year, closely followed by Gen X and Millennials.

61% reported undesired weight changes, 67% reported changes in sleeping patterns, and nearly half of the country's population have put off receiving counseling services since the beginning of the pandemic for one reason or another.

While mental health concerns may still be prominent as COVID is ongoing, please know that receiving counseling doesn't have to be a difficult or time-consuming process!

This month, we want to raise awareness about counseling, and let people know that counseling can help! Follow our IG account @lifespring_md for more counseling-related posts all-year long!
