good luck and good vibes! The school district my mom works for had several positive cases pop up the first week of school. It’s scary and I am eternally grateful for teachers!!Last night we got an email that a teacher will be our for 2 weeks quarantining because her daughter tested positive.
Hang in there. Take one day and on step at a time. Start with writing in your journal since it sounds like it is not good for you to be outside right now. Then once you get that going hopefully you will be able to get out side with some fresh air.I've totally lost what I call my "stress buffer" which gives me the ability to detach and observe when things amp up. Instead I'm going right into a tailspin, down the rabbit hole of unhealthy thoughts and actions: the forest fires and smoke are the proverbial last straw. At least I know I'm doing this, so there's that. And I know I need to do things differently, but for the past several days have been in curl-up-in-a-ball and shove-sugar-in-my-face mode . I know I have to physically move, I need to meditate and I need to journal... I guess if I start with just one of those it will begin to turn things around.
One stress reliever that I have managed to pull off... there's a huge pile of recycle on the curb waiting for pick up. I should take a picture of it, to prove I got one thing done this week.
