Remember, in times of change and uncertainty, you may feel a bit out of control. You may also feel like you are not as productive as you should be or not living up to your expectations for yourself. But remember that you are allowed to do less than what is humanly possible, especially when you are going through changes.
Taking a step back and giving yourself space is healthy, productive, and essential.
