We are doing our best to stay up-to-date with the latest information, announcements, and recommendations from Health Canada in regards to all things COVID-19. Right now, things seem to be changing daily and there is a lot of information out there. The World Health Organization is recommending everyone to prioritize social distancing in an effort to help slow the viral spread.
Further to that, our doctors here in BC are asking that the public self-isolate and maintain social distancing as it will save lives. We all know how important community and staying active is for our mental health and that social distancing may be one of the most challenging things we have to do, however there is no higher priority for us than the health and safety of the PACE family and our community as a whole.
It has been wonderful to see photos of the PACE family getting outside on their own this last week. We have been excited about the ways in which we can still inspire, motivate, and hold our athletes accountable. In a time where races and events are being cancelled, there are bans on large gatherings, and there is uncertainty for some with work, our mental health matters more than ever.
When I feel overwhelmed or anxious I try writing, reaching out to my friends or family by phone, distancing myself a bit from media use, and getting some fresh air - even if it’s just a walk around the block. At PACE we not only believe that Positive Attitude Changes Everything, we also know the power of community and are here for you if you need any encouragement, or even just someone to talk to. Please know you can always reach out to us.
We hope you can continue to cultivate kindness for yourself and for others during this time. May we continue to be brave and vulnerable together.
With much love,
Hannah & Coach R ♥
