We’re At The Starting Line

What is it like to “start over?” It’s something a lot of us could only dream about a few months ago and here we sit in the position of the unknown, an uncertain future where suddenly you’ve been laid off from the job you were comfortable in and scroll through the world of job possibilities.Continue reading “We’re At The Starting Line”

New Perspective

Even the people who seem like they’ve got this whole Quarantine Life figured out, don’t. I promise you. They’re having decent days, but they, too have moments when it all catches up and they don’t know how to handle it. How can I be so sure? Because I’m most certainly one of those people. I’llContinue reading “New Perspective”

We All Have Our “Team”

Day “seems-like-forever” of quarantine. This weird state of being that we are all in, at least for me, is starting to feel “normal” these days. It’s as if I’ve become a teenager again. Except this time around, I’m more educated in a lot of ways, including life; I’ve established a career (even if temporarily onContinue reading “We All Have Our “Team””

Me, Myself & I

This is quarantine. You’ve wanted time for yourself. You’ve wanted to have no where to be and all the time in the world. It’s here. Don’t be scared of it. Don’t try to run from it. Don’t get in your own head or your own way about it. Be lazy. Be productive. Learn something new.Continue reading “Me, Myself & I”

Ya Gotta Have Faith

…and more so, HOPE. I like to have posts named after songs or song lyrics. Some times it isn’t possible and that’s fine but, today’s felt right. I’ll admit it hasn’t been easy navigating this new norm. Even the home-bodiest of homebodies still likes to go to a place or two every once and aContinue reading “Ya Gotta Have Faith”

I had heard on the news yesterday morning that around 43% of people feel like this pandemic has taken it’s toll on their mental health. It’s overwhelming and you may be experiencing anxiety and stress at higher levels than ever before without any ideas on how to control them or comfort yourself.

QUICK HITS: How To Best Use Your Time Alone or With Family

From being alone, to being a couple without kids or a couple with kids, I go overContinue reading “QUICK HITS: How To Best Use Your Time Alone or With Family”

QUICK HITS: Are You Catastrophizing?

This week I’ve been continuing the Garage Sessions with “Quick Hits,” which are short videos to help identify issues or help ease your quarantine experience. The first this week was about “Catastrophizing” and how you may be, unknowingly making things more overwhelming for yourself. Watch for more:

Do Something For YOU

I know, you probably think you’re doing stuff for yourself all day, every day. But, I mean, when is the last time you really stopped and did something that was truly for you: self-care. That’s on today’s agenda for the Garage Sessions with Feel This Happy and more. The more self-care you do, the betterContinue reading “Do Something For YOU”

Watch What You Consume

Quarantine is an interesting thing. Being limited with interaction, depending on your living situation, lack of activity, dealing with the limited food and supplies that you have within your home and so on. It can completely send your world in a tailspin and that’s not even including the stress and anxiety you’re already dealing with,Continue reading “Watch What You Consume”
