Resources for Living
Everyday, we each do the best we can. Sometimes, we feel good about that. On other days, our life journey seems hard and we need the support of others.
The Unitarian Fellowship offers opportunities to be with others (sometimes on Zoom) and supports purposeful living. May you find something that suits you on these pages and in our Fellowship.

Being anxious right now is completely understandable. Self-care can help ease some of the negative feelings. That means getting enough sleep, fresh air (even from a window), eating nourishing meals, taking a break from the news, and connecting with loved ones by phone. It also means asking for help when emotions become overwhelming.

The video How To Be At Home urges us to lean into loneliness — and know you’re not alone in it. Filmmaker Andrea Dorfman reunites with poet Tanya Davis to craft tender and profound animation on the theme of isolation, providing a wise and soaringly lyrical sequel to their viral hit How to Be Alone.
Kindness Calls—helping others feels good!
We try to keep in touch with each other, especially during difficult times. It gives us all a lift just to have a chat with others. Keep the phone humming with one call per day. Hearing a human voice soothes the soul.

To Give You a “Boost”
CBC’s Tapestry is your guide through the messy business of being human. You’ll hear surprising conversations and rediscover your connection to something larger than yourself. Tapestry: your time to pause and go deep. (watch out for loud volume). For example, try: Soundtrack for the Soul — The 2021 Edition
