Seems opportune to post this now: "Free Online Meditation Resources for Times of Social Distancing / COVID-19." (I haven't vetted these, but looking forward to checking some out.) https://bit.ly/39pqFhl

"PEOPLE ARE REVEALING THAT THEY WOULD RATHER BE EXPOSED TO COVID-19 THAN, GOD FORBID, GAIN 10-15 POUNDS WHILE ISOLATING THEMSELVES LIKE RESPONSIBLE ADULTS." By Clarkisha Kent, @IWriteAllDay_ @WearYourVoice https://bit.ly/2JmvgGD

Sorry, didn't include link before. "Social Distancing Is Dead Serious. Hold the Line." This is really valuable stuff. HT to Jonathan Smith @jpsmithuga https://bit.ly/3arO5E2
