Hi all,

Please share what is helping you through these troubled waters of 2020. I will list some that have worked for me.


  • Walks outside in nature.
  • Putting my face to the sun (with eyes closed) for a few moments while on my walks. BLISS!
  • Playing the piano
  • Working on learning/refreshing my second language

What are yours?

My three boys keep me going. I am so, so grateful to have them.

My 2 kids keep me grounded.

Ditto on walking in nature.

Exercise ... in particular cardio

laughing is great

last but not least, praying and meditation.  Both of which, are a work in progress:)

 Thank you for starting this thread Kelly. I am with you and Steve and it is so important to laugh. Netflix, YouTube videos have helped a lot. Being able to talk to friends or family even via FaceTime makes a difference.

I find that being physical helps me too, it’s hard sometimes to get going but once I get going it help.
I’ve always liked doing crafts and stuff, I started a cross stitch pattern after my Dad passed and it’s been very soothing. It’s such a repetitive thing, and you really have to pay attention to your counting, it’s helped to stop my mind from wandering into not so great places.
Sometimes a good old fashioned scream/yell/sing in the car is the ticket though. If anyone remember me that ska song “the impression that get” from the mighty mighty bosstones.... it’s great energy and I just shout the lyrics at full volume.

Thanks for sharing everyone, it’s good to hear others’ coping mechanisms.
