It is time to check in with yourself. How are you, really?
Amidst a pandemic, the global Black activist uprising, a recession, and a myriad of other events in 2020, we find ourselves under pressure to create, engage, design, and perform. With all of this free time, you told yourself, I can now learn that new language, write that best-selling novel, or create that website I always wanted to make. It is okay if you have not done any of these things, or even anything at all. Because in the midst all of this, your mental health may have suffered. Depression, anxiety, grief, and loneliness may have crept in, whether it was here prior to 2020, or as a result of.
It is okay not to be okay. It is okay not to feel grounded.
