Adjust Your Thinking
Hello Hawthorne! My name is Samantha
Schmidt, and I am one of the new interns
for the City Clerk’s Office of Hawthorne
City Hall. In the last Hotspot, I talked about
several wonderful businesses opening back
up within Hawthorne. However, even though
all of these small stores and restaurants are
beginning to get back to business, COVID-19
can still lead to a negative impact on all of us
individually. Some of us may have felt this
hit as a substantial toll on us economically,
emotionally, and mentally. I know staying
inside can often feel overwhelming since
many of us have grown accustomed to going
outside most days. But don’t worry. As the
mental health advocate, I would like to present
you with a few tips and remedies to feel
at ease when spending your time at home.
Tips and Tricks on
As much as your physical health is important,
your mental health is too! We are
all going through some sort of obstacle during
the COVID-19 pandemic. Let’s remind
ourselves that we are all going through
this together. An app that I’ve found super
helpful during COVID-19, and that is free
is “Headspace”. On this app, you will find
hundreds of guided meditations that touch
several useful subjects such as sleep, exercise,
and even focus. This app also provides you
with some 2-3 minute mini-meditations for
a quick mental rest to those who have been
working or taking classes online. Not only
that, but “Headspace” also includes miniworkouts
sessions called “SOS” in the case
there is a moment for panic, anxiety, or stress
experienced. Another app that I found useful
is “Mindshift CBT.” Once again, this is free
as well! This app is designed to help those
from learning how to relax to even facing
fears in a small, manageable way. I suggest
these additional apps that can be beneficial
are “Mindfulness Coach”, an app to help our
Veterans with stress/anxiety/PTSD, “Mothers
and Babies Online Course”, a free English
and Spanish app to help our new or soon
to be mommies (available only at https://
www.emb.health/), and, for those suffering
with insomnia, I suggest to look over at the
free app CBT-i Coach. To download these
apps are easy! Simply to your Apple Store
or Google Play on your favorite mobile device,
search any one of the titles previously
mentioned, download and open the app for
any step-by-step instructions!
If you aren’t willing to download the
app previously mentioned, here are some
alternatives! One method I am doing is
