If there's one mindful reminder that can help us through these uncertain times it's to be gentle. Be gentle with yourself, with the voices in your head telling you you're not doing enough, or your kids aren't doing enough. You don't need to learn a new language or learn to bake sourdough bread. These are not normal times and it's okay to feel out of sorts. So please, please, be gentle with yourself. Be gentle with the people around you.
And slow down. Our nervous systems are used to a very speedy pace. We crave lots of stimulation. Speediness and stimulation often help us distract ourselves from feeling some of the uncomfortable feelings that we'd rather hide. Uncertainty. Grief. Lonliness. Fear. These are all emotions that we'd rather not spend too much time with, but they are just as valid as any other emotion that we might experience. We know that when we numb ourselves to the unpleasant emotions we also tend to numb ourselves to the more pleasant emotions too. (Notice that I did not say negative and positive?)
Remember to be gentle with yourself and whatever it is that you are feeling right now.
