I realized I had no control over my external environment. But the one place I did have a say over was my mind, through meditation.

During this pandemic people have found themselves at home either more of the time, or in some cases, almost exclusively. The calendar that was once filled with meetings and reminders, suddenly lacked all its luster. Those annoying dings that once sent us on to the next task, giving us nothing short of a Pavlov’s dog response, stopped suddenly. Previously, we wore the word “busy” as some sort of badge of honor, but now find ourselves feeling lost and even despondent. So how can it be that we’re exhausted at the end of the day? The calendar says that we’re doing less, yet our body, mind and spir...

CONCLUSIONS: As the European and international provisions are hierarchically above the national provisions, the latter should be interpreted so that the non-compliance to the obligation to stay at home: a) does not constitute offence for a person tested positive to the virus, if therapeutic treatments resulting in hospitalization are deemed necessary; b) it does not constitute administrative offence if the subject proves, based on clinical and factual documented evidence, that leaving the house is necessary to avoid recrudescence of mental disorder. In addition, for evaluation purposes, particular attention should be paid ...

Socializing with family and friends is essential for older adults in long-term care because it significantly reduces the depression and anxiety that may come from isolation and loneliness. Unfortunately, today socializing may also bring COVID-19 infections to one of the most at-risk populations for morbidity and mortality from this disease. It is estimated that over 40% of the COVID-19 deaths in LTC resulted from visitation, which in turn resulted in most LTC settings banning visitors. We have now gained a better understanding of how to manage the risk of COVID-19 spread while benefiting from reopening to visitation, so ma...
