Loves. Please press pause.😌 . . It’s been a long, heavy, stressful couple weeks.😞 . . Please get some rest. Unplug for a bit. Your mental health needs you to press pause, rest and practice self care. This is gonna be a marathon, not a sprint. There is so much work to be done to take care of our communities, families, clients, teams, selves and each other. But we can’t do that if we are running on empty. πŸ™πŸΌ . . And please be kind to one another. And to yourself. Please do your best to focus on what you have control over. Please do your best to practice compassion, empathy and healthy boundaries, online and off. Please do your best to not project your fear and anxiety onto each other.❀️ . . We’re proud of you. And we love you. Love- Nina 😴
