One of my best friends recently asked me:
“Sylvitica, how can you be a political activist without getting completely overwhelmed by the news”?
So the first thing I have to share is my latest video on tips and tricks to be a political activist without stress.
The truth is, I recently had to take a 10-day break because I was about to have a mental breakdown from all the stress, frustration, anger I was feeling.
The pandemic, the protests, the racism, it got to be too much all at once. I was feeling so frustrated that I couldn’t do more.
So my mentor and my husband stepped in and told me I needed a total break. A break from work, a break from the news, and a break from social media.
And that’s what I did.
cFor 10 days I didn’t check my email, social media, read, watched, listened to the news. On very rare occasions I’d accidentally see a headline and I could feel my body change and my blood start to boil and shoot up like a rocket.
That made me realize that I do NOT WANT Tono Latino to be a source of stress for any of you.
I want to give you information but I do not want to overwhelm you. And these days, we are getting more and more overwhelmed because what is happening is a challenge for everyone on this planet.
