We’re full swing into summer but things are not “back to normal” and it’s hard to know when they will be. With this uncertainty and everything happening in the world you might make you feel anxious about:
Your financial situation
Your loved ones
Physical distancing with people you care about
Your anxiety makes sense and I want to help you work through it in a constructive way through movement, meditation, and self-reflection.
The deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor at the hands of police are both tragic and also part of a long history of Black people being killed for no other reason than for being Black.
In 1955, a 14 year old Black boy, Emmett Till, was lynched for allegedly offending a white woman at her grocery store. And this year Ahmaud Arbery, a 25 year old Black man, was killed while jogging in the town he lived in.
A friend texted me to ask if we could talk and my mind goes to 100 negative thoughts. “He’s mad about this, he’s going to accuse me of that, I’m going to have to defend myself.” I’m walking down the street. The sun is shining and it’s beautiful and lush out. But I’m not enjoying it at all. I’m catapulted way into the future.
