There has been a fair bit of chaos that has been happening in the world lately. Adapting to isolation, then adapting to the world opening up again has been anxiety-provoking for a lot of people. On top of that, the situation in the US is distressing and news and social media are flooded with constant information and reminders. We wanted to create an event to provide opportunity to connect with one another, focusing on strategies to help keep our own personal-world's positive and safe during this tricky time. Join us on Tuesday the 30th as our 1.5 hour event kicks off at 7pm AEST with the wonderful @Jupiter and Community Guides @frog and @jem80 as co-hosts!
Until our event, check out this great resource from Headspace App, co-founder and former Buddhist monk, Andy Puddicombe, on how to navigate our emotional health during big world events -

I'm new here - what is Topic Tuesday?
Topic Tuesday runs from 7pm - 9pm AEST monthly. Each month we focus on a different topic, with the session facilitated by a Community Manager or Moderator. Sometimes Topic Tuesday will feature a special guest, who is an expert in the topic. The first post of the thread (this one) will give you an idea of what the topic is and what will be covered.
How do I get involved?
Topic Tuesday takes place right here! It's text based, so no software is needed. During the session, to keep up with the latest posts hit the 'refresh' button on your browser for the latest posts (it doesn't automatically update). Keep an eye for page numbers at the top & bottom of the page, and jump to the highest page number for the most recent post.
Throughout the session, the facilitator will put questions out for you to answer, usually asking for your own experience on the topic. To contribute to the session, just hit the 'reply' button and share your thoughts. No answers are right or wrong and everyone is welcome to get involved.
We'd encourage you to engage in this event on a desktop computer/laptop, as we need to refresh the browser page quite frequently, sometimes this can be tricky on mobile!
