Can I even focus right now, or write a blog, or send a newsletter, or post on social media?
The answer is no. I can't ignore what's happening.

As human beings, when we feel stress, we often go outside ourselves. It’s our brain's effort to keep us safe. We want to make sense of it all. So, we consume, we connect with others, we seek out information. We do everything in our power to analyze the threat. We look for answers that may not ever be found.
And that can be useful... to an extent. But by doing that we can also miss the enormous opportunity...
