Checking in... is everyone doing?  For real? Over the last couple of weeks things have changed so drastically.  I am so tired of all the posts about this virus.  I know it is important for people to be informed, but I also think that too much information (and too many opinions) can just end up fueling panic.  


How are you coping with all of this?  Any strategies to share that are keeping you sane?  Anyone need to chat or vent?  

Personally, I am doing ok.  Not great, not terrible...just ok.  I tend to spend quite a bit of time alone in my home anyway, so that isn't entirely new to me.  I have many hobbies that I enjoy so I have no shortage of things to do.  But....this sucks.  I don't like to be told I have to stay home and be anti-social, I want staying home and being anti-social to be my choice.  ; )

In all seriousness though, as a deep feeler and an empath I am very aware of the emotional climate in the world around me and I feel overwhelmed and exhausted by all of it.  I am processing through art and music, and trying to balance rest with productivity.  Not an easy thing to do, and I'm sure you can relate.  My diet, which is dreadful most of the time is somehow even worse... yikes!  And with nothing but time on my hands, you'd think I could muster up the energy to be at least a little active...but that's a struggle too.  

Right now I am just trying to be kind to myself.  The whole world is going through a strange and terrible time.  It's ok if it's hard.  It's ok if it's confusing.  It's ok if I eat dry froot loops by the handful right out of the box.  Right?
