Pandemic Blues, What to Do, Part One.

So many people have lost their jobs, their loved ones, homes, health, that it seems wrong to sometimes get down when you haven’t suffered those losses. And yet people do get blue these days. I have no medical, logistic, or financial advice, but here are a few ideas for fighting off anxiety and sadness.

First, maybe don’t fight it. Maybe give yourself permission to be sad for a few minutes and trust yourself that you will not sink into a pit of despair. Maybe try to understand what is bothering you – is it fear of getting sick, isolation, too much media, a personal conflict, something else? Usually I bounce back after a few minutes and you might too.
