Today is a special check-in episode of The Breakdown. I'll tell you how I'm doing, and what I'm trying to do to manage the stress of the time we are in, but I also want to hear from you.
Right now, we’re in one of the most strenuous periods in the history of this country.
Not only are we dealing with the devastating coronavirus pandemic, but we’re still dealing with all of the problems Americans faced before the virus. Income inequality, mass incarceration, failing social services, police brutality, and other harrowing issues still plague people every single day. These issues have only been made worse by the pandemic. Everyday life must continue to function, kids must continue to get an education, college students must graduate, meals must be cooked. It is simply overwhelming.There is so much need in the world right now, we often forget to ask ourselves what we need. In today’s episode, Shaun urges us all to take a breath and check-in with ourselves, then breaks down what we can do to manage the stress.
