Are you tired of all those emails you are receiving right now, giving you unsolicited advice on how to be more creative, how to manage your time, how to keep your house clean?
Are you both enjoying and cringing at the creative memes going around, and wondering why you haven’t been able to be so creative?
Are you are completely over all the compilation lists of resources, information, and guides of aid that might be available to you?
Are you feeling angry that it feels like everyone else is doing this better than you are? Frustrated that it seems like everyone else has time to paint, puzzle, read or exercise?
Do you feel like you are working harder than ever, yet spend most of your time staring at a screen?
Are you suffering from an unbearable amount of FOMO, that everyone else is on a Zoom party but they didn’t invite you?
Have you been stress-eating and drinking to the point that you’re exclusively wearing stretch clothing?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE. That’s all I can say. I don’t have a solution for you, otherwise, I’d be doing it rather than writing this.
This is what I am doing...
meditating every morning
talking on the phone
going for walks
asking for help
completing what I can
celebrating that I completed something
trying like hell to go easy on myself
Would you like to add anything to the list?
