We’ve experienced day after day (after day, after day…) of this new normal. And we’re missing so many of the experiences we took for granted — especially those that let us connect with others. But we also have an opportunity to stretch ourselves and discover new ways to connect, from sharing a drink with friends over Zoom (quarantini?) to starting a virtual book club. Comment with something creative you tried for the first time in these last few weeks and how it went.

Whether you're feeling overwhelmed, lonely, or stressed, it's important to process those feelings fully in order to move past them. What's one thing that has helped you cope over the past week?

I've been so inspired by the acts of generosity and compassion around the world during these difficult times. For our communities, for our loved ones and for those on the frontlines of this crisis. Text FIRST to 50555 or go to my #LinkInBio to read more about how @thrive — along with @harvardchansph and @caafoundation — is supporting #FirstRespondersFirst.
Original caption from the Rotterdam Philharmonic: "From us, for you. We’re adjusting to a new reality. Creative forces help us, let’s think outside of the box and use innovation to keep our connection and make it work, together. Because if we do it together, we’ll succeed."
When the story of this pandemic is written, the heroes will be our healthcare workers. Today, @harvardchansph, @thrive and the @caafoundation launch #FirstRespondersFirst for those risking their own health while enduring burnout, exhaustion and many other challenges on our behalf. This initiative will provide first responder healthcare workers with physical and psychological resources they so desperately need as they serve on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thrive's behavior change platform will deliver online workshops, virtual training, coaching, and content to healthcare workers. These Microsteps will focus on sleep, movement, nutrition, stress management, and relationships with colleagues. Go to my #LinkInBio to learn more and donate.
Constant change is one of the defining aspects of our new normal. At @Thrive, we are using every tool at our disposal that we’ve developed over the last three years to help us all manage the stress and uncertainty of these times. Go to my #LinkInBio to read my latest newsletter with resources to help us all focus on what we can control when so much seems outside of our control.
Share this #JoyTrigger with someone who needs it right now! Even during this crisis, children can teach us so much about curiosity, wonder and the intense mystery of being alive. | Video Credit: megan.elizabeth.x3 on TikTok
