    It is important to stay socially and emotionally healthy! 
    Self-isolation can have lasting effects on us as humans, and as we continue to push forward, it’s important to remember the benefits that can come from maintaining open communication. Whether you are alone during this time of isolation, or cramped among family, friends or pets, it is important to open up to others, to talk, and to share your thoughts, frustrations, or concerns about what you’re experiencing. Whether it’s a phone call to family, video chat with a friend, or an hour of venting to your pet - make sure to prioritize your mental and emotional health by communicating and finding ways to relieve stress in healthy ways.
