Anxiety is one of the most common, difficult things we deal with as humans today.
Throw a pandemic and quarantine on top of it? It feels like throwing water into an already-swirling sea we can’t get out of.
The unfortunate reality is uncertainty. We don’t know how long this will last. When it does end, we know things will never be the same.
That doesn’t mean uncertainty over whether or not we’ll be OK. We are in this together, and we will be OK!
But we know things must change for the betterment and health of our planet & its beings.
