Managing stress and anxiety in an uncertain world

We need community now more than ever

Circles are small groups of women who come together for real talk and peer support. Right now, Circles are meeting virtually and helping each other through the pandemic. We’re a global community and we’re continuing to lean on each other.

Resources to help you get through this

The pandemic has disrupted life as we know it—and many of us are struggling to come to terms with our new reality. While we can’t make stress and anxiety go away, here are some practical tips to lessen the impact by taking care of our minds and bodies. For more resources, check out our other topics here.

If you’re covering this topic in your virtual Circle this month, read one or more of the pieces below, then discuss as a group using our suggested questions at the end.

This set of curated materials was created in collaboration with our colleagues at Option B. OptionB.Org helps people build resilience and find meaning in the face of adversity.

Discussion questions for virtual Circles

These questions are designed to help you and your Circle members connect over common challenges, share your best strategies to overcome them, and workshop solutions together.

Pick one question to start with and move on to the other questions if you have time.
