The stress of the current events has finally gotten to me! After the death of George Floyd, and the continuous media coverage, I was stressed and anxious. The lack of sensitivity by the current administration and others, compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic was depressing. I found that I really had to unplug and start doing something else for my sanity.
I like to keep up with current events, and honestly, it became too much to consume. It is reported that the President has COVID-19 after exhibiting risky behavior and the press are consumed with the story.
Apparently, I have a higher tolerance than most because many of my friends and family had already unplugged and doing other things. I felt I had to keep up with the nonsense and pay attention to combat false information.
Netflix and Prime Video have became my friend. I started listening to more music, and increased my exercise activity and stopped watching the news.
My advice to you, is take care of yourself, unplug, find something you like to do to relieve your stress. These days we all need to ensure we are getting enough sleep, eating well and exercising to maintain our well being and health.
Just keeping you informed!
