Post-Election Stress & Anxiety
Post-Election Stress & Anxiety
Aïcha Sebaa @drsebaa

It will be 75 days before our new President-elect and Vice President-elect are sworn into office. 2020 has been filled with times of crisis and uncertainty, which has led to many of us doom-scrolling, feeling stressed, anxious, and tired. We have been living through a once-in-a-century pandemic, lockdown, weakened economy, and tirelessly calling for America to get serious about preventing Black deaths at the hands of law enforcement.

It’s a good time to rethink your relationship with technology, and focus on self-care and building your immunity. …

Are You Causing More Harm Than Good?

Headline after headline, it’s the same story: another Black American shot &/or killed by law enforcement.

George Floyd, after a police officer knelt on his neck as the other officers watched. Ahmaud Arbery, while on a jog. Breonna Taylor, while police raided her home, with no probable cause. Philando Castile, in the car with his girlfriend, and her 4-year-old daughter. Trayvon Martin, only a young boy. And the countless ones before.

Emmett Till, a 14-year-old child, was murdered 65 years ago today. He was falsely accused of whistling at a white woman; then kidnapped, disfigured, and brutally murdered by an angry mob white supremacists.

Do you remember the first time you saw the image of Emmett…

This is a time for action+change: inside ourselves, our households, & organizations.

As we write this new chapter in history, an important question to ask yourself is, “Will I be able to take pride in how I responded and how I contributed?”

Dear White and non-Black people of color,

Take a deep breath and work past the anxiety, shame and/or guilt you are feeling. You did not create racism. However, you CAN choose to admit the ways you benefit from it and acknowledge the power you have to change these conditions. This is permission to educate ourselves and grow. This is permission to forgive and say to ourselves: What am I going to do from this day forward? This is permission to become an even better version of ourselves; to become better partners, friends, co-workers, and co-conspirators to the movement for Black lives and equality for all.

If you…

2020 has no chill. Except this..

The COVID-19 pandemic has turned our world upside down, and a big huge Thank You goes to everyone at the front-lines: medical professionals, grocery store clerks, delivery drivers, transit and utility workers — along with so many others — who have been selflessly getting up everyday to make sure we have everything we need.

In light of these unprecedented times, many businesses and organizations have decided to make their content more accessible to those who are responsibly social distancing. …
