My strategy for a better overall health
(By Alicia Donovan, ASD-South)
Simple! Using the doorways to breathe!
To help support mental health throughout the day, I hit my refresh button when I pass through a door way. Doorways are actually linked to mental phenomena such as forgetting what you were just thinking. I use this to my advantage by pausing, taking a deep breath and leaving what just happened in the classroom, in the classroom.
I also do this when I arrive home: I deep breathe at my entrance way and leave the work day behind me, allowing me to be fully present when I am with family or friends (and vice versa, when I arrive to school).

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has been a difficult time for most people and many aspects of each other’s lives have been impacted.
Johnson has certainly been impacted as well. The Fredericton office was closed until September, with all staff working from home and has re-opened for claims drop off only on a temporary basis. Currently, we are the only Johnson’s office in Canada to be open. The majority of our staff are still working from home to provide the highest level of service possible during these challenging times.
We are processing claims that are sent to us, either by mail or electronically, within seven business days, which is slightly higher than our usual five-day turnaround. If you haven’t already done so, we urge you to sign up for direct deposit to eliminate delays due to cheques being sent by mail. You can contact the Claims office to implement this method of reimbursement.
Johnson is always there to answer your questions or concerns. To contact us, please use the following contact information:
