As the COVID-19 marathon continues people around Australia catch their breath, reflect on the sacrifice and celebrate the terrific achievements. As COVID-19 number of infections has declined and we enjoy more and more freedom many nurses and midwives are feeling the impact of working on the COVID-19 frontline.
In October during World Mental Health Day thousands of Headspace members took a pledge to care for their mental health. And while World Mental Health Day might be behind us, being kind to your mind is a practice that takes daily commitment. As you reflect on the impact of COVID-19 a bit of headspace may be just what you need.
