COVID

December is upon us and so is the end of 2020, a year no one will soon forget. For so many, December is a month rich with tradition, indulgence, and faith. As the world around us faces new challenges in its struggles with COVID-19, it might be difficult to envision what this holiday season will look like, let alone figure out how to make it special. It is also more important than ever to go into this season and the new year with a strategy for maintaining your health – both physical and mental. 

Late yesterday BC Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry announced a new set of province-wide health orders and guidelines to address increasing cases of COVID-19 in the second wave of the pandemic. You can read the full announcement on the province-wide restrictions here. The order is in effect from November 19, 2020 at midnight to December 7, 2020 at midnight.

Stuck at a place of mine where suddenly the world starts to lose touch with reality. I find myself questioning, “Is this really happening?”

We do not develop six packs or becomes a marathon runners without sore muscles along the way. Similarly, we cannot gain strength in our mental health without processing pain, sadness, and uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. The past few months of 2020 have certainly prompted discomfort as we learned to live in new ways and sat with our thoughts and feelings about the world and the humans who inhabit it. 

Columbia Basin Trust is developing a short-term plan to help guide its activities over the next 18 to 24 months.
