    There is a lot of panic going on right now. Some people are taking things too far, others are not taking it seriously. It's often because those people don't understand how this illness spreads and that it will mutate unless we stop it. Fear mongering and politicizing this is making it worse. Following medical advice about sanitizing surfaces and washing hands, and social distancing will keep us safer and healthier.

    I'm mostly enjoying the time with my kids and my husband. It's nice to have is home all at once. (Most of the time)

    Videogames have always been my mental health time; they're a great way to blow off steam and bond with friends from all over the world (from a safe distance!). So that during the day, with my partner and our friends, and then a gentle comedy or ASMR in bed to clear my head so I can sleep. Because stress on its own is bad for your immune system, and it also affects your sleep which is doubly impactful on your health. I remind myself of that regularly too and it helps me put down the news.

    Be well, everyone. Stay home, save a life.

    I do a lot of surveys to pass time and I really try to distance myself from to much news.
