A Tough Turn in 2020
With fear of COVID-19 spreading throughout the world, we wanted to reach out, just like everyone else, and let you know we are here with you! It's a tough, uncertain time and we're all scared for our loved ones, neighbors and friends. We felt like it would be odd, and slightly insensitive, to continue on with our blog posting and social media-ing without mentioning what has taken over every news outlet.
We're just as worried and frightened as anyone - trying to do our due diligence by staying inside and social distancing, washing our hands a 100x a day, cleaning and cleaning some more. And we're watching all our favorite accounts on Instagram to see how others are surviving (and not thriving) - just like us!
We thought we might share some helpful links to distract you, inform you, and entertain you as we all get through this together.
These gals are literal sunshine on Instagram (anxiety-ridden sunshine while flying but, entertaining as hell!) and have a fun challenge going for their followers to organize and de-clutter different parts of your life each day. They are the QUEENS of organization and rainbows and even if you skip the delightful stories (I recommend you don't), their feed is instantly calming and glaringly beautiful.

It's a go-at-your-own-pace course that can only benefit you, if you're looking to learn a little more about you, your daily mindset, and how to be happier.
