    Here's another podcast I like a lot: The Happiness Lab with Dr. Laurie Santos.
    If you look at this link (or any podcatcher for the most recent episodes), she's been doing a series about coping right now.
    I haven't listened to them all yet, but I generally find this podcast very helpful.

    Here's a thought work podcast I've been listening to for some time that has some helpful mindset advice for overcoming anxiety. This link is to the first pandemic-specific episode, but she has released more since then too, and you can find them on her website or any podcatcher: And guys, don't be put off by the intro about using feminism to rewire your brain. Most of her advice is universal, especially regarding this subject.

    EDIT: I'm re-listening to the one I linked, and noticing that she often refers to "the model" - if you're new to this, she covers it in earlier episodes of her podcast, but these are screenshots I took from a free webinar she did a while back where she discussed her thought model. I'm an insane note-taker, and have been interested in this stuff for a while, because it really seems helpful for my non-woo based brain.

    Welcome to the club! Also trying to make art, but hard to do when my mind is stressed. 
    Yeah, it is hard to do when you’re stressed. I’d been enjoying my regular work, which is busy but not super taxing mentally. I’m going to try to get myself into a good routine so I can actually get some stuff done while I have the time. Also gonna KonMari the shit outta the house because I’ve been wanting to do that.

    Well, that didn't take long. My job got "suspended indefinitely" starting tomorrow. I figured it was coming at some point before long because we do work for the theme parks and places like Disney Stores, but I wasn't expecting it quite this soon. I guess I'll have lots of time to make art now.
