I think everybody can agree that 2020 has been quite an eventful year. There’s so much going on between elections, COVID-19, and yet another black man murdered due to police brutality. We are all going through this and we are all battling and showing as much support as we can, but ask yourself if you’ve taken a step back to recollect yourself and be at peace?

Policing your peace is sometimes easier said than done. During these times it’s easy to lose your sanity and yourself all while trying to fight for something as simple as human rights. In all honesty, you matter as well, so take a couple of minutes or an hour to cure your mental health. The media has a way of holding powerful information that can suck our minds in so quickly. It’s okay to put your phone down, relax a little, focus on yourself, or take a breather.

Being in media, I have to stay connected to keep you all informed, but even I had to take a day or two to reflect and recollect. I was so mentally drained, I literally could not see another video, another autopsy report, another NOTHING. I just couldn’t.We are experiencing a lot of thoughts, anger, and feelings that we can’t control and it’s OK to feel but don’t forget about YOURSELF. If you’re reading this I want you to take a break today by doing something that’s good for your mental health and warms your heart. Once you collect yourself, figure out the best way for you to get involved and stand in it ten toes down!
