Getting back out there – a social event to help Reconnect after Covid 19.

Getting Back Out There  Reconnecting after Covid 19.

Easing of restrictions has allowed us to get back to the people and things we love, but adjusting has brought challenges too.

You might be worried about the pace of the changes or what the future may bring but it’s important to be patient with yourself and with your feelings.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has been hard for us all, and we have all experienced the effects differently.

Even positive change can lead to anxiety, and it can take time to readjust to things we have not done for a while.

Cork County Federation of Muintir na Tire in conjunction with Ballynoe Community Council and Cork and Kerry Community Healthcare HSE are organising a social event to help people reconnect after Covid. This is an evening of improving your mental wellness plus music and dancing. This event will take place in Ballynoe Community Hall on Friday April 29th at 7.30pm.

Feelings of anxiety are likely to pass with time as we get used to the “new normal” but it’s important to do what we can to take care of our mental health.

The Speaker on the night is Kevin Mc Cormack. Kevin is a Mental Health Peer Support Coach, a published poet, and a professional performer. His unique approach to teaching self-care through Mindfulness and Meditation has gained him a wide following both in Ireland and abroad. Kevin will be giving a light-hearted talk on the importance of taking personal responsibility for our mental health and will share some simple ideas of how to cope with anxiety.  He will also be reading from his poetry collections ‘Verses Versus Verses’ and ‘SOUP for the WOUNDED’, and will partake in a Q&A session on the night.

The evening will continue with refreshments followed by music and dancing with James Burke.

The event is free of charge but a raffle will be held to help defray costs.
