Right this moment I am staring out the window of a little 63’ Franklin travel trailer, listening to the quiet morning waves of Lake Superior. Mornings are always my favorite time; it’s quiet, all I can hear is the light breathing of my three kids as they catch up on sleep from the previous day’s adventure mixed with the rustle of the biggest evergreens in the great state of Michigan.

Sitting in my little twin bed drinking freshly made camp coffee, I always have a happy heart when I’m working in the morning from Lil’ Frankie, the name we gave our travel trailer. She’s 150 sq ft of vintage charm that I worked all spring to restore. Every nook and cranny has a purpose and every time I’m in here my soul explodes with happiness. She is mine, and I made her. I made this life.

Have you heard the phrase, “Change Guilt?”

You won’t find it in the dictionary, but it’s a real thing.

It’s the feeling we have when we seek out something different and our mind tells us to be happy with what we have. It’s your subconscious trying to protect you and it grows stronger by the stories we tell ourselves and the stories others tell us.

I don’t know about you, but I am spending WAY TOO MUCH TIME working from home.

I’m doing a terrible job of creating space between my home office and my home life.

There are a million articles on the internet right now about how to stay sane while in quarantine.

We’re told to use the time to rest.

Use the time to be super productive.

Set virtual happy hours.

Take some meditative alone time.

No matter how you plan to spend your social distance time, at some point, everyone needs a little human connection. Yes, even you, introverts. Obviously you, extroverts and of course those that fall somewhere in between.

Humans are a social species but not everyone is really interested in a million virtual happy hours serving “quarantinis.” So what else is there?

I’ve pulled together a few tools to help you navigate how you want to socialize from a distance.

Take a deep breath. Give yourself a moment to reset. Now is the time for all of us to support each other and try to make the best of an unexpected situation.

There’s no doubt, we are living in uncertain times. With news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) constantly filling everyone’s newsfeed, people are unsure and nervous about what may happen next. It seems every hour there’s an update from leaders across the globe, mandating social distancing, canceling large sporting events, and making travel recommendations. It’s hard not to think about how this could impact you and your loved ones, and the rest of the world– and how it may continue to impact us all.

Some people want a family someday but have no idea how that could work with work.

Some others have children and then have the mom guilt or the dad guilt.

While you’re at work, you feel guilty about being away from your child and when you’re with your child you feel guilty that you’re maybe missing out on something with work or you’re not keeping up.

One woman created a company to help professionals keep growing their personal careers and still have family time.

It was so successful she sold her company for millions.

Can we have an honest conversation about stress and self-care?

I’m hearing the online buzz more frequently about self-care as stress management. It seems like ‎every day there’s a new article or post targeted at women with tips on how to better balance it ‎all. ‎

Get a mani/pedi!

Make time for brunch and make sure you hashtag it on instagram!

Get your Orangetheory workout in with before and after selfies!

And it’s so enticing. Who wouldn’t want 10 tips on how to do it all, look amazing and feel ‎refreshed!

But is it real? Is it helping? Is it all bull? Is it just another thing that women are expected to do perfectly? Is self-care another chore to check off?

Sometimes, stress hits us like a sucker punch to the gut.
It might be a panic-inducing, sudden onslaught of feelings.
Or maybe a rub-your-temples and remember to breathe type moment.

Maybe it’s just a hide-in-bed-under-the-covers and disappear from the world, kind-of-day. (“Just”… As if it’s some small thing to feel like hiding from reality.)

Some stressors affect us every single day. Most likely roll off our shoulders without slowing our stride, but some days, life hits us more than others.

Whatever the cause, when stress hits hard it can leave you feeling like you’re suffering from an emotional hangover.

And for all of us bad-ass, boss babe, rockstars, we can’t afford to have stress from our personal lives interfering with work. Yet, even bad-ass, boss babe, rockstars — are human, too.
