The Pandemic Doesn't Mean We Have to Choose between Physical and Mental Health

The statistics on illness and death are staggering—but there’s been an equally staggering toll exacted on our mental health. In nonpandemic times, making choices that benefit both physical health and mental health was relatively straightforward, for these choices were often one and the same. This ever-present balancing act leaves us feeling that our physical and mental health are at odds, in a battle vying for attention: should you prioritize you and your family’s physical health, or your weakening mental health during this stressful and uncertain time? Remember that protecting your physical health doesn’t need to come at expense to mental health: There are many ways to support physical immunity and avoid risk of COVID-19 but still support your emotional needs. To survive the enduring pandemic ahead, we must recognize mental and physical health as mutually influential parts of human health that work best when they work together.
