I’ve written about different past routines several times on this blog, and it’s about time for a new one.
“Avoid the news, it’s depressing.”
“Remember you’re not just working from home, you’re doing your best in a pandemic.”
“It’s okay not to be okay.”
As someone whose mental health is often very fragile, this advice hasn’t resonated with me. In fact, my mental health is the strongest it’s been in forever despite watching the news all every day (I believe in being prepared, and for the most part I connect to the facts of the pieces rather than the emotions).
