Yesterday I put on my mask and face shield, and worked from the mall coffee space for several hours. Even though I didn’t interact with anyone except for barista, when I ordered a coffee, I really felt better in the end of the day. Just feeling people moving around gave me a shot of energy.

I did this too at a coffee shop near my house that has a giant outdoor patio. I was shocked at how a single morning of working from there, with a mask on, made me feel so much more normal and connected to society. I’m in LA so I stopped doing that because our cases are so bad, but I highly recommend it if that feels safe to you at some point.

I’ve heard about some friends playing an MMO rpg together and having a fun time exploring a whole new world from the safety of their home. Does that sound like something that could help?

Tanks for the reply! I don’t really play video games. I’m a super outdoorsy person so I’d take that over sitting in front of a computer or tv any day.

I’ve been there. After a breakdown like you described, with encouragement for my husband we invited another couple to stay with us for the weekend. Hosting friends was exactly what my outgoing self needed. In a world where social media is constantly telling me to ‘stay home and save lives’, having friends over feels controversial. But Winter is going to be tough and all the Zoom hangs and group message threads in the world can’t replace real life interactions. I wish I had more solid advice OP. Hang in there!

Seeing a professional through virtual therapy is super helpful. I’ve also found a weighted blanket, a sun lamp, CBD tincture, daily walks (even in the cold), regular facetimes with family or friends, and aromatherapy oils in lavendar and peppermint helpful. And, apps like Calm or Headspace have free or low cost meditations, while apps like Lululemon have free yoga videos. It’s not perfect and you may not enjoy it all, but building those moments of mental health care into a routine may help.

My school has seen combinations of f2f, hybrid, and remote teaching/learning throughout the first half of the school year. After the MLK holiday, our district is returning to traditional f2f teaching 100%. I have 4 band classes (1 beginning, 2 intermediate, & 1 advanced), and as far as content pacing is concerned, we’re 1 9-week grading period behind. Is it a far fetched goal to get my students where they need to be by the end of the school year? How would you handle a situation like this?
