“Art is what makes the world unique. Whether we see it or not, it is what shapes the world around us into something beautiful. I love doing art, it’s my good. What’s yours?” – Emily, age 16

"BREATHE. When you feel your mind racing and body tensing, take a moment. Close your eyes. Breathe in slowly, counting to 3. Hold your breath for another 3 seconds. Then breathe out, counting to 3 again. Repeat.

BE KIND. In a “How are you? Good!” culture, we rarely get a glimpse of the anxieties, insecurities, or battles we all experience. A simple smile or act of kindness can shift a person’s entire day.

CHECK IN. Start a group text with your best friends. Send someone flowers. Email a teacher to say hello. While we’re isolated, checking in is the connective tissue that keeps our relationships nourished.

BE PRESENT. Notice how your mood and physical sensations in your body change throughout the day. We learn a lot about ourselves by how we react to uncertainty.

THINK WE NOT ME. HELP. DONATE. Social isolation is an act of service to others, recognizing we can all do our part to care for our collective health. Support your friends who are the most vulnerable. Thank those in your community who aren’t able to socially isolate and everyone on the frontlines fighting this pandemic.

PRACTICE GRATITUDE. Write 3 things you’re grateful for before you go to bed. These can be as simple as, “I’m grateful for the coolness of the air conditioning on my face” or “I’m grateful that I’m able to move my body.” Ending your day with gratitude will fortify resilience.

FIND JOY. Laughter soothes anxiety. Pay attention to what makes you smile and laugh. Cultivate it. Protect it. Do more of it.

SPREAD LOVE. LEAD WITH HEART. WE’LL GET THROUGH THIS. We’re here for you."

“Stories are what make up who we are. Share your #story with legislators and challenge them with specifics. Tell them what needs to be done.” -Congressman David Trone. #CADCAForum

Discussing the need for research on marijuana’s impact on adult #health, Congresswoman Susan Brooks urges, “We need to make sure #Marijuana policy is driven by science. States are promoting Marijuana (through legalization) without knowing how it affects people.” #CADCAForum
