The current global reality is likely leaving the majority of us feeling anxious and stressed. When all of our social media feeds are filled with posts about COVID-19 and every news channel is reporting on it constantly, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by everything that is happening.

But, it’s so important to take time for yourself. Take a moment to breathe. Step away from the screens, go for a walk if you can, or take a long shower.

If you’re suffering in any way, whether it be emotional struggles or physical, please reach out to someone you can trust.

Here’s a beautiful northern cardinal with some golden hour bokeh between the trees to distract you from all the terrible news right now, even if just for a second. 

Some suggestions to help you get through the weeks of social distancing:

  • Escape with a good book
  • Call a friend
  • Have a virtual coffee date
  • Binge watch some feel-good content on Netflix or YouTube
  • Work-out at home
  • Meditate
  • Start a new hobby that you can do from home
  • Bird watch through your window (and photograph them if you can!)
  • Challenge yourself with an at-home indoor photo project
  • Journal (or better yet, write a book!)
  • Make art
