mini-Resource list for centering yourself during blm protests

We probably all agree that these past few days have been heavy on all of us. From watching the Twitter feeds, Facebook foolishness, and grossly inaccurate portrayals of PEACEFUL black protests in the news. Some of us haven’t been able to relax or haven’t been able to unplug for a moment. At some point in the day, take some time to come back to yourself. It's easy to get caught up in needing to know all the recent developments. But something's gotta give at some point. Give yourself some time to rest, relax, and unplug. We’re tired. We’re unproductive. We can’t sleep. We can’t relax. Here are a few, quick resources for you.
