COVID-19 Update & the Importance of Self Care
Welcome to our first blog of 2020 – and what a year it has already been!
To all our new customers, I’m Tracey Wilson, the owner and naturopath of Bearfoot Wholefoods.
Amidst the uncertainty of COVID-19, we are here to reassure you that we are still trading as usual, and here to support each of you and your health needs.
There is no doubt that self-isolation can take a toll on our emotional, mental and physical health. As such, it is important to take care of ourselves, our loved ones and incorporate steps within our daily routines to stay aware, grounded and find normality amongst the chaos.
Due to the current environment of COVID-19, we are in a constant state of worry and stress which never seems to dissipate. There is an intrinsic link between increased stress and anxiety levels and depleting health, often impacting us in more ways than we realise. It is vital for our overall nutrition and wellbeing to adopt relaxation strategies, prioritise activities we love and take a moment for ourselves.
Everyone has their own ways of relaxing and switching off – whether that be cooking, going for a walk or self-care, I strongly encourage you to make these a priority in your day-day schedule. While these things may seem minute in comparison to the repercussions of COVID, they are essential to maintaining wellbeing and overall happiness. We have plenty of products in store to help you during these times – baking ingredients, relaxing teas and daily supplements.
In order to help remove the anxiety surrounding shopping and large public spaces, please know that we are flexible and here to provide options to ensure your shopping experience is safe and enjoyable. We have increased our hygiene and safety procedures in store, our staff are practicing social distancing and we strongly encourage you to do the same. If, however, you would feel more comfortable ordering from home, please give us a call and we will do our best to accommodate for your needs.
