In this pandemic moment my emotions run a course of challenging peaks and valleys. My emotions fluctuate between anxiety, calm, rage, and peace. I acknowledge my emotions. I wallow in them. Then, I wash them away. How? When a particular emotion nags I address it through one of a variety of personal activities - exercise (I'm a certified group exercise instructor), reading, streaming TV shows and videos, and sketching and drawing (I'm a designer and illustrator). In this pandemic moment I learn my emotions are a driving force toward constructive, distracting, or creative activities. How do you handle your myriad emotional states in this moment?
