Anyone want to share what’s helping you take care of yourself? I could use some ideas

Madeleine- I need to have my 5 mile walk every day to keep myself sane. On Monday that didn't happen until 10pm, but I still had to do it!

Getting outside more - sunshine therapy!
Ben Bullock
34:05
Laryn, I've been doing the same!
Katy Motsinger

Walking for me, too! Preferably with no media involved (definitely no work media). Not that I'm doing it as often as I should, but setting boundaries for working at home as well.
Marc A. Pitman - @marcapitman
34:32
I had a friend help me build a strength training program that didn’t involve weights. I’m shocked at how much I like it.

Catherine Schumacher
01:08:23
We had a really good first online meeting yesterday and some of my team recommended that we adopt a virtual meeting every other month to make it easier for some of our members to attend, rather than having to travel. Terrific attendance. Great questions. We recorded to share with those who couldn't make it.
Madeleine McGee (Together SC)
