Stress can have a negative effect on a person’s health, both physical and mental. Stress presents itself in many ways including irritability, fatigue, pain, lethargy, sleeplessness, and other detrimental symptoms. During COVID-19, it is all the more important to maintain good health, and part of that includes practicing coping strategies for stress management.
The pandemic has increased the amount of stress on everyone. People have had to navigate extreme changes in schedules, communication, social life, isolation, and health management, while also learning to handle higher levels of stress that come with such changes. For many, this managing a stress level that is greater than anything they have experienced before, so typical coping strategies may not be as effective.
Stress management strategies should be specific to each person’s individual needs and desires. One should determine the best way to practice self-care. Exercise, good nutrition, sleep, and meditation are all common ways many people practice self-care, but each person should figure out which works best for them.

"When we moved to Holly Creek we thought about what is visible, such as interiors, apartment layout, dining areas, which are all very nice but after living here for a year we have discovered what is most important is the people that live here and employees, who are all so considerate and kind who are at the HEART of Holly Creek. They make Holly Creek a special place in which to live."
