Exercise for your brain
As the coronavirus impacts our lives, we need ways to care for ourselves and one another. Whether you are well-practiced in staying in, or making lots of changes to your daily life, the pandemic brings up many emotions. It is also a critical time to care for our nervous systems. In doing so, we strengthen our minds, bodies, and particularly our immune systems.
