It is a difficult time individually and collectively for all. For me, two things really helped. Doing zoom sessions with friends every day and getting out in nature. This helped me to not feel alone and connected. Spending too much time watching the news and on social media can actually be a detriment to your health. It's good to be informed but in the end you have to decide what is right for your life and your health. Now and always you have the final say on how your life looks. You make the choice about every aspect of it every day, in every situation. When you give that freedom of choice away, you can feel disenchanted and powerless. No matter what happens in the outer world, you have autonomy over yourself, your body, your life. Align yourself with people who support your thoughts and goals and let go of anything that doesn't support that. I used the Insight Timer app every morning for months to clear my mind, release anxiety and to start my day with a positive mindset. Using apps like this can help deactivate "monkey mind" and take you out of the outside chaos. Do more of what you love to do and make that a priority. Challenges come and go and know that this one will go.
