- Reach out to support someone else. It always adjusts my perspective to remember i'm not the only one celebrating or struggling. Giving love and encouragement reminds me of who I am.
- Put something in order. Washing dishes, putting away laundry, clearing clutter--anything that orders my physical environment--helps minimize my visual distractions and loss-related stress. My thoughts and emotions order themselves while I work.
- Take one small Next Step. These are not the days to expect blockbuster performance. Whether it's a submission that seems daunting or a chore I've been avoiding (for sometimes months), one small action to move the ball forward is sometimes all it takes to change the whole game.
