Take care of yourself. I know this is silly and repeating what everyone else is saying, but life has been turned upside down and you will need to turn to things that provide you comfort, help you recharge, and keep you healthy both mentally and physically. EAP can be very helpful. Take advantage of remote counseling if you need it. Go for walks or do some exercises at home (YouTube has a lot of routines). Cuddle with your dog, cat, child, partner, etc. Color, work on the house, garden, whatever.
Step back. Breath. Outsiders won’t understand your particular situation and will likely make a comment that will send your blood pressure skyrocketing. They mean well. Let it go. If you can’t do what is asked, then you can’t. Do what you can.
Set healthy work-life boundaries. If you can, create a space to work that does not blend into where you seek down-time. Work set hours. Try to avoid working all day and night. All of this will lead you to feel stressed, guilty (“you haven’t done enough”), and it will burn you out quickly.
Laugh. Watch stand-ups, silly YouTube videos, share jokes.
Stay connected. Keep up with your colleagues. It’s hard to be so isolated from one another, but you are all in it together. You are not alone. WebEx Teams and other chat services are a great tool to keep up with one another via chat, video, and phone. It includes screen sharing tools, emojis, and gifs (see the previous bullet point).
Designate your support group where you can safely vent your frustrations. This is a stressful time and you’ll need to let off steam. Who is in your Las Vegas crew?
Do your best to eat healthily. I have trouble with this because I stress eat like no tomorrow. Do the best you can. Forgive yourself. Tomorrow is a new day. (Corny, I know, but it’s the truth!)
Be open to change and be flexible in how things are done. They may/will be different than what was always done. You won’t be going back to the same situation when we get back. Attend professional development webinars when possible. Share ideas and tools with your community and peers. There are so many free resources out there than can help!
