on

Cork Kerry Community Healthcare has released a week-long series of video supports to help you cope with COVID-19.

 

‘Five ways over Five days’ will release a new video each day with advice and support from Principal Psychology Manager Daniel Flynn for members of the public impacted by COVID-19.

The first video in the series is available on YouTube at this link, and is a useful discussion on understanding our emotions.

“We know that the past few weeks have been a challenging time for everyone here in Ireland,” Daniel Flynn explained.

“COVID-19 has changed how we think, how we feel and how we act day to day. Routines have changed, our children are home from school, many adults have had to work from home, and many have lost their jobs. People have been ill and some have been experienced the emotional pain of bereavement. We want to ensure that, at the current time, we do everything we can to support people in our community as the cope with these new difficult new realities.”

Over the next five days, Daniel will offer short daily videos online to help you in responding more effectively with the psychological impact. His hope is that at the end of the five days you will have new understanding and skills that will ease some of the emotional stress associated with current life changes.

These key skills are:

Day 1: Monday- Understanding our Emotions - Why we have emotions and how we manage them even if we do not like them.

Day 2: Tuesday - Understanding our states of mind, how with balance, emotion and reason and find a more wise mind.

Day 3: Wednesday - Daily Mindfulness - How to be in the moment, the “what” and “how” of everyday practice.

Day 4: Thursday - Relationship Mindfulness - how to be mindful of others and protect your relationships.

Day 5: Friday - Coping with Distress - some crisis survival tips when things are not how you want them to be.

“It is really important that at a time when we are all feeling more worried and fearful in the context of uncertainty that we do everything in our power to take control where we can. These videos will teach you some basic ideas and skills that could make a big difference to your well-being and that of others around you if you can spare five minutes each day to watch and learn from them.”

The links to each video will be issued on social media each day starting today (Monday) and can be watched on YouTube – just search for Cork Kerry Community Healthcare, or see @CorkKerryCH on Twitter.

There are also resource sheets with additional skills and tips available on the HSE website at www.hse.ie that you can view online or download.

Ian O’Connell said he is delighted with the messages of support following his first broadcast as a presenter on Radio Kerry this week.

The well-known and popular Killarney man was left with life-changing injuries after falling from his bike in Killarney National Park in 2017.

Since the accident he has been a champion for the less fortunate under his mantra: “If you can’t stand up – standout”.

This was the inspiration behind his brand new radio show which aired for the first time on Wednesday evening.

‘Stand Out with Ian O’Connell’ will feature interviews with people who have overcome great adversary to reach even greater heights.

His first guest was fellow Killarney man Jordan Lee. The Paralympian represented Ireland in the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

“I was used to being in the studio from people interviewing me, but this time I turned the table,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was great to have Jordan on, two Killarney men! I really enjoyed it, it got a massive reaction and I got loads of emails and messages afterwards and into Thursday morning.”

Ian will reveal his guest for the show on the previous Monday through various social media channels.
