CULTIVATING CALM DURING CORONAVIRUS: AN “AT-HOME” SELF CARE RESOURCE GUIDE
We know stress and anxiety from the spread of COVID19 deeply affects our community. During times like these, immune compromised individuals must be incredibly vigilant, which can cause even more anxiety. While this is a critical time for us all, we want you to know we are here to support you through this crisis. We’ve sourced a list of free resources, offered online or by app, that will help mitigate stress, decrease anxiety and create space for your wellbeing.
We will continue to add free resources as they come available to help you combat stress and create calm amidst the chaos. For support from our lupus community, we invite you to join our online support groups via Zoom. Lupus LA is also hosting Facebook Live Session with expert rheumatologists to answer your specific auto-immune questions. You can watch our first session with Dr. Swamy Venuturupalli here!
