These are stressful, uncertain times live in, as the world grapples with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, ongoing protests, and the 2020 Election. With everything going on in the world, the nonstop coverage and seemingly endless stream of negative news can be overwhelming—and, as a result, it’s easy to feel more stressed or more emotional than usual.
In moments like these, it’s important to stay informed on the latest updates and to continue having meaningful discussions about what’s going on. But it’s also important to look after your own mental (and physical) health. That’s why self-care is such a hot topic these days. It’s not about ignoring the news and current events, but rather finding ways to cope when you need it.
