Sick of All the Input?

"I'm sick of all the emails and social media posts telling us what to do and how to feel"


That was the consensus from a virtual call with friends last night.


They're tired not only of the random companies reaching out to share their COVID-19 response, but also the gurus they've been following for years.


The sense from the group was that we are full. We are on information overload, it's time to just be.

I wonder if that's true for you too?


It's ok to feel however you feel. 


If you're scared, fed up, tired, frustrated, anxious, angry, short-tempered, feeling guilty, optimistic, empowered or all of the above at various times...it's ok.


We are human with a wide range of emotions and there is no playbook for the "right" emotional response to a pandemic.


I want to be conscious of not adding to the sense of overload. So, instead I simply offer the idea of giving ourselves some grace.


How much better would the world be if we all treated ourselves with a little more patience and kindness?
