We are operating in uncharted territory right now that no one could have possibly imagined or prepared for.
Olaf, the snowman in "Frozen," said it best - "We're calling this controlling what you can when things feel out of control."
Be kind to yourself and know that you are not alone. When you begin to feel overwhelmed
, anxious or frustrated with the unknown of this entire experience, take a breath, step away, and find something you can control. Maybe it's
Facetiming a friend, maybe it's watching a Netflix show, maybe it's taking a shower, or maybe it's just sitting on the porch staring into the distance.
Your feelings are normal; this situation is not. Remember, don't forget to breathe!
