Stress levels are running high.
Nearly half of Canadians are more stressed out now than they were at the beginning of the pandemic.
70% are worried about their physical and mental health.
"We're now reaching unprecedented levels of stress that will challenge our ability to cope." says Arthur C. Evans Jr., Ph.D., American Psychological Association's chief executive officer.
A recent survey on behalf of APA found COVID-19-related stress was associated with unhealthy coping mechanisms (such as increased drinking and weight gain), and these unhealthy coping behaviours have now become entrenched ~ this points to mental & physical health continuing to decline.
Reduced social support, and strained social relationships also make coping with stress more challenging.
"We know from decades of research that healthy and supportive relationships are key to promoting resilience and building people's mental wellness," continues Evans. "Particularly during periods of prolonged stress, it's important that we facilitate opportunities for social connection and support."
He advises that as a society, we connect not only with those in distress, but also engage in prevention for those who are relatively healthy.
The good news?
I'm here to help!
I have felt the call to action, and I am responding.
I am so excited to announce my newest program:
This program combines tools to reduce stress & anxiety, tension & un-ease, so you can enjoy more vibrant health & resilience, authenticity & peace ~ in body & mind.
1. A special selection of offerings from years of studies and research ~ a mix of self-paced, as well as guided practices: a variety to accommodate different learning styles. I will be adding extra resources based on the needs of participants ~ wow!
2. Group calls with a curated group, creating a safe space ~ this is an amazing experience! Even on those days when you may feel too shy to share, there is so much value in hearing other people's experience. There's no substitute for community support. Being on the journey with others can boost a sense of hope, and help keep momentum through the hills and valleys along the path. While it's natural to be nervous to join a group, the benefits outweigh the risks - and it's likely other people in the group feel the same way ;) The first thing we can celebrate together is summoning the courage to join the group! We're in this (and we're stronger) together.
3. One-on-one coaching with me (Dove), including customized support, and a personalized action plan.
This process is not just about information ~ it's about transformation.
Reconnect with yourself, your inner wisdom, your body-mind, and with others. Embody Peace.
Space is limited, to maintain a very high level of care.

Peace is a practice, not a hope."
