Back to the drawing board, so to speak.
I liked the topic, so I stuck with it. As the beginning of fall semester approaches, anxiety for educators, students and parents is increasing -- or at least it is in my little corner of the world.
But every article I read sounds the same. Mindfulness, self-care, stepping away from the news. All really good advice, but nothing I hadn't already considered or put into practice.
Then I found this article from Healthline and it made me laugh. In reading through it again, I'm not sure why, but that response was a bonus.
Laughter is definitely on of my favorite coping mechanisms.
Not only that, but the article had ideas I hadn't considered or read about anywhere else, despite the fact that it was posted back in March. And the site, too, had a warm, positive vibe, despite the fact that I'd landed on the coronavirus page.
Advice-seeking is a tricky business. We want to be realistic and well-informed, but we don't want to fall down a deep well of despair triggered by too much information that is out of our control. When I find reading material that accomplishes this, I want more of the same.
Which is why I subscribed to Healthline.
Stay well :-)
