This has been a high stress week for a variety of reasons. I have two just social meetings each week, and I used them to destress. I grabbed the leader of the first one and requested a no politics zone. She thought that was OK, as long as no one objected. It was a nice, stress free meeting.
I also requested the same for the other meeting. Again, it was greeted with acceptance. This group has done it before, so I knew it wouldn’t be an issue.
Discussing politics isn’t a bad thing, but with the chaos that happened yesterday, and the fact that these meetings are for lowering stress, we didn’t need to discuss what is stressful to many.
Next week, I’m sure it’ll be discussed, but, for this week, the group members can blow off steam on social media platforms instead.
