The holiday season is kicking off and we at the Think Tank are watching the end of this year with great anticipation. Needless to say, 2020 has been a whirlwind, crazy, and chaotic year filled with lessons, struggles, and successes.

As we reflect on where we are and where we’ve been, we want to take

This is part one of a two-part series podcast with Dr. Dorian Hunter. This is part one of Episode #39.

We’ve had seven months now to get used to the new normal between the pandemic, life in quarantine, the mask debate, civil unrest, the kids at home, working remotely or trying to work remotely or not working remotely. The economy is shifting. The election is coming up and the news is constantly telling us it is the worst of times.

What the hell is normal, and how do we cope with a life that is so far from normal, let alone thrive?

With the shift to working remotely, the insanity of 2020 in general, and the stress levels of everyone around me I’ve noticed conversations getting a little crunchy lately.

I’ve had to do a lot of pausing, deep breathing, and counting to ten in my conversations. I find I’m regularly checking myself and my reactions against the things others say in discussion with me.

Are they being jerks? Do we just disagree? Do they have any awareness of how they’re being perceived?

In today’s professional setting especially, it is so important to check yourself (before you wreck yourself) before you react.

Here’s how you can do that.

If you’ve been following the Think Tank of Three podcast for any length of time, you might have noticed that we’ve been quiet lately. We have been feeling the impact of COVID-19 and the unrest around the treatment of people of color.

While we know it’s important to speak up and take action, we also know that we needed time to practice what we preach on our podcast, putting our families, our work, and our communities first.

We pulled back to take a minute to check ourselves, take some time off to process how we feel, and also to get some work done behind the scenes for exciting changes coming to the Think Tank.

And we want to offer this community an explanation as well as share some hope.

At Think Tank of Three, we passionately believe that every person must stand against racial injustice.

We are women, empowering all women. This space is a space for you. We want black women and women of color to feel safe and know they have a voice here.

While major brands with vast resources have responded with large donations and advertising campaigns, the more relevant question for us is what can we do?

More importantly, what must we do?

I find that when I acknowledge I’m not taking care of myself, then I catch myself in problematic behaviors more frequently and have a better chance of correcting them.

I’m sharing some tactics that can help create distance from work, when you’re stuck working from home. I hope the Think Tank helps keep me accountable!
