Anxious About Everything? Try a Puzzle.
For those of us who are actively dealing with racism, microaggressions, or working on better allyship, it can be hard to sit down and power up. But rest is a must. To that end, not just rest but mental rest is necessary too. Many experts suggest meditation and prayer as a way to reset after a tough week, or day, or month, or years of racism battle fatigue. But if you can’t quite force the mind to settle down perhaps a puzzle might help.
Old school? Yes. But forcing yourself to think about the puzzle instead of doomscrolling on Twitter is a good way to give your mind a temporary respite from thinking about what’s next in the battle against racism.
