Online Wellness Communities

March 18 2020

We are all experiencing these uncertain times differently, for most, our day to day routines have changed, and amongst other uncertainties, this can be difficult and affect our health, both mentally and physically. Many of you are working diligently to protect the health and safety of Manitobans who are vulnerable to this outbreak and may not have the time to search for online self-care options. The Catholic Health Corporation of Manitoba (CHCM) would like to share a few online tools that may be helpful for your well-being at this time, while being respectful of the social distancing recommendations.

Virtual Circle of Meditation & Self-Compassion
The Compassion Project is hosting weekly online drop-in meditation circles to support us all in this challenging time of change.  Come together with fellow community members to take care of yourself and one another. Create some ease alongside friends.   No experience required, all are welcome.  Sessions are held Mondays at 6pm here

For more information, call Kellie @ 204-256-4301 x2002

YouTube has an abundance of options for online workouts, here are two accounts that we think might be useful.

  • Yoga with Adriene
    An account that offers many different Yoga classes and styles. Videos range from a quick 5 minute break to a full 45 minute class. You can find it here
  • Fitness Blender
    An account that offers a variety of workouts suitable for a home setting. Most are no longer than 30 minutes and can be done with or without equipment. You can find it here

We see your hard-work and are grateful for your tireless efforts and compassion at this time. We hope that you can find some time to take care of yourself, as you are taking great care of others.

Members of our board and staff are gathered today to learn about reconciliation in a day facilitated by Indigenous Health (WRHA). One of the striking images we've seen is this tree illustrating the roots and the impacts of racism and discrimination on a patient's experience - the Determinants of Health. We're thankful to be able to spend this time together and to be able to discuss how we can more actively engage in reconciliation.
Les membres de notre conseil d'administration et notre personnel sont réunis aujourd'hui pour en apprendre davantage sur la réconciliation en une journée facilitée par Indigenous Health (WRHA). L'une des images frappantes que nous avons vues est cet arbre illustrant les racines et les impacts du racisme et de la discrimination sur l'expérience d'un patient - les déterminants de la santé. Nous sommes reconnaissants de pouvoir passer ce temps ensemble et de pouvoir discuter de la manière dont nous pouvons nous engager plus activement dans la réconciliation.
