How I am coping with anxiety in isolation

This week has been particularly challenging.

I saw the eye of the storm in the emergency department of a local hospital. I witness for 10 hours, what those brave people are dealing with. When I was safe back in my own home, I went into a tale spin of sadness. I am haunted by what I saw. 

To help me see a brighter future, I truly believe that the arts heal. Music, paintings, literature and films help me feel more grounded. I look at what other creative souls are doing. Here are what has helped me, instead of doom scrolling.

Artsy a website and marketplace for art. It’s wonderful to see art from around the world. I think that is why I like selling art wear so much like the Dolcezza. 

A Music app called Radio Garden, you can hear radios stations around the world. Free & Uplifting!

P.S I have decided to get a dog. Big decision! Not taken lightly, but I want that type of companionship in my life, I’ll be walking more! Stay tuned, this early fall.

Stay safe and we will see you in May, 

Aileen

    Great decision to get a dog. Dharma, my golden retriever has just become a comfort dog at Journey Home Hospice. She is pure joy! 😍

    Good Stuff, Aileen, it is uplifting to read how you are coping and yes I can only imagine how you must have felt after seeing this terrible situation for 10 hours. Make sure to send us a picture of your new doggy :).
