I hope all of the mothers out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. It sure was different in my household as our daughter did not travel to us, so seeing her remotely was the gift to her mother.
dominated the days for most of us. That said, I have pledged to myself to try to move away from the fast-moving digital news.
As we enter May, most of us are hoping for bright and hopeful days. April went by so fast and the anxiety brought on daily by new news flashes A psychiatrist Henry Emmons has been talking about finding calm and is a frequent contributor to podcasts and the news often. He believes it is understandable that we look at the news, but that we need to be careful between paying attention to what is going on at the moment, and what we need to be doing to remain as calm as possible.
At school, we have had many discussions among ourselves(remotely!) about how we can help each other. Everybody has different needs. We have had to make many changes in our daily routines and some members of our community have thrived and others have needed more help from their friends and colleagues.
So how are you doing? We are finding out that people are becoming increasingly flexible and adaptable-- accepting what is going on. Is that your experience? Please let me know.
