Hi ladies!! I recently lost someone really close to me from covid and also had a close friendship end and have also just in general had a really rough two months - I’ve gotten through it but I feel like I’ve lost my spark and myself in some ways. Aside from therapy, do you all have any tips on how to get out of a funk and to start loving life again? Thank you!

Definitely take a vacation but prior to that I would make a list of everything that at some point in time brought you joy. While you’re on the vacation you can tick off those items and come up with a plan to incorporate them into your daily and weekly “you” activities.

I’m so sorry you’re going through a season of loss. What you’re describing is grief. The answer to how to get over it is not to. You must go through it. The only answer is time. Why push yourself to be loving life when your boy and heart are telling you in this moment that you need time to heal? Grief is necessary to fully experience joy in life.

Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?
