Social Distancing is isolating and anxiety producing. As the days become weeks, it’s important to carve out time to take care of your body and mind. With gyms closed to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, you can still get an endorphin-producing workout at home. Of course, daily walks alone or with your household members are still okay.

In addition, there are some great resource for meditation, online therapy, and apps to help connect and calm.

  • HearMe is an app created by a Montclair resident that allows you to anonymously connect with an empathetic HearMe Listener in under a minute, 24 hours a day – for free. It’s not therapy, but just a way to connect to an empathetic listener.
  • The UCLA Mindful app features about a dozen free meditations of different types in English and Spanish in sessions ranging from 3 to 19 minutes long.
  • Calm offers a “7 Days of Calm” guided course featuring 7 sessions of 10 minutes each for free. After that, there are a variety of subscription offers and prices.
  • Talkspace offers online therapy with the confidential support of a licensed therapist through an HIPAA-compliant app. You get matched with a licensed therapist in your area to receive support via secure messaging and live video sessions.
