Are you constantly refreshing the news?
Is CNN playing muted in the background all day?
2020 has been a RIDE already, and November is more than some of our poor brains can take.

IT'S NOT USEFUL, AND
IT CAN BE ACTIVELY HARMFUL TO YOUR MENTAL HEALTH.
Computers and smart phones are designed to be addicting to your brain. So is an ever-changing news cycle.
Put those two together, and your brain has been invaded.
IT'S NO WONDER YOU CAN'T RELAX.
I know what I'm talking about, I promise. I spent twenty years working in feminist law, policy, and activist organizing before I became a Certified Master Coach. I saw burnout all around me in every social justice movement.
And now I see that burn out spreading to everyone else.
The good news is there are a few simple steps you can take to feel calm, stop stressing about the future, and keep your life moving forward during these - and any - tumultuous times.
And the best part is that learning to follow these four simple steps will actually make you more productive AND better able to contribute to the world in a positive way.
If we want to stop the anxiety spin, if we want to sleep better at night, or even if we want to change the world, we have to start with ourselves.
More peace, resilience, and power is just a click away!
