Are you finding it hard to stay inspired and optimistic in the face of the endless bleak news that flows across your timelines and TV screens? You’re not alone. I’ve heard from many friends and colleagues that this constant grind of negativity results in feelings of sadness, anxiety and a sense of being overwhelmed. Many describe great difficulty concentrating and staying motivated for the important work that lies ahead. We understand and can offer some help. While online resources are useful, we know there's no substitute for the encouragement that only real time interaction can provide.
