ELLSWORTH — The Ellsworth Public Library will partner with Bass Harbor Memorial Library, Buck Memorial Library, Friend Memorial Public Library, Jesup Memorial Library, Northeast Harbor Library and Witherle Memorial Library for a virtual author talk Wednesday, Jan. 5, at 7 p.m.
Doreen Dodgen-Magee will discuss her book “Restart: Designing a Healthy Post-Pandemic Life” via Zoom.
This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
COVID-19, and the resulting quarantine, has had a profound effect on our mental health and well-being. This talk includes an informative review of where we were when quarantine hit, how the lockdown affected us behaviorally and interpersonally, then gets to work addressing how to use the restart as an opportunity for growth and health. Information on how to identify and break pandemic habits that will no longer serve us is offered alongside practical tips and tools for thriving.
Dodgen-Magee is an author, psychologist, researcher and speaker. Her writing has appeared in the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Psychology Today and more.
