Sanity Savers

We’d like to say that this week has been easy juggling kids, work and our own mental well-being, but it's been a challenge and I'm sure the rest of you are feeling the same way.  Going phone-free for a few days has brought a lot of calm in our house and we started to think about what we could do to relax during this stressful time.  I received a text with this amazing list of sanity savers from Salesforce, plus we've added some additional ideas.  We hope you are all staying safe and please email us at info@theoandgeorge.com or DM us instagram.com/theoandgeorge/ with any additional suggestions as we will be updating this list regularly.

Anxiety & Body image issues - resources

This time at home with no access to gyms and no routine and the feeling of food insecurity can feel frightening to a lot of people with a history of food and body image issues.
Obviously this is no replacement for therapy, but if you’re feeling anxious, these are some great resources.
A lot of folks in that space on Instagram are also providing advice on how to get through this particularly difficult time.
