Sometimes The Best Thing You Can Do is Absolutely Nothing

We can’t always keep calm and carry on

The roof of my car looked like a tent.

Emergencies make us crave control

“You just need to sit in the dark for a while. Don’t worry about your car. Don’t worry about your job. Don’t talk. Don’t think. Don’t do anything.”

We lie to ourselves about how calm we are

We respond to stress and grief in different ways

It’s okay to turn off your day and unplug it

Doing nothing isn’t easy
