  • Maria’s action item: Keep running and work towards the goal of running a half marathon (with Kelly).


  • Create a routine for yourself, even if you don’t have to do it.
  • Attack a project you’ve been putting off to feel productive.
  • Sleep and eat well to keep your body strong and healthy.

  • Connect with people you have not spoken with in awhile.
  • Avoid media - write the news headlines for the future you’d like to see.
  • Maria’s action item: Create her news headlines for the future. Look for signs of meaning in the difficult time.
