Friends! Romans! Countrymen! And, uh, anyone else who needs a little pick-me-up!

These are trying times. We’re all staying at home, keeping our social distance, worrying about the future and demolishing any bag of snack food that crosses our paths. Chances are, you’re not feeling super motivated to be your sharpest, most productive, hygiene-norms-observant self.

And that’s cool! If your best strategy for surviving the coronavirus crisis involves Netflix on your iPad and a newfound dedication to naptime, we salute you. There are no martyrs here.

On the other hand, if you’d like to get something done but are struggling to find the motivation, we feel you. A lot. And while it would be amazing to click some internal “go-getter” switch and have at the task at hand, that’s just not the reality for most of us.
