Breathe

If you're feeling your body contracting or overheating, step away from whatever you're doing and take a deep breath.

Or if you want to take it a step further, try meditation and mindfulness exercises for beginners.

Get Moving

Do something that feels good for your body and helps you get out of your head, whether that's deep cleaning or comfort decorating to create a cozier space, tips on learning a new skill or jump starting your exercise routine.

Nourish Yourself

The kitchen is a safe space for a lot of us. Maybe this is the weekend that you finally re-create Grandpa's famous lasagna, or learn how to make a prettier pie, or maybe just lose yourself in some kitchen organization.

Stay Connected

When the news is scary, it's easy to get lost in our own heads. Reach out to loved ones instead.

That could look like sitting down to write an actual letter to a relative, spending time with neighbors, playing (or creating!) games with family, or even taking the time to write down tho...

Sign Off

Remember that it's OK not to be plugged into the news.

By turning off your alerts or checking the headlines once or twice a day, you may be able to feel more grounded and prioritize yourself and loved ones.
