Dear Olawumi
Mental health and wellness are always important. Having a dedicated practice can be difficult in normal circumstances, and social distancing can sometimes exacerbate stressors. It's crucial during this time to pause and notice how you feel, take breaks from COVID-19 content, make time to sleep and get exercise, make sure you connect with loved ones, and seek help when you need it. 

Art can be a powerful tool to center yourself, work through your emotions, and have a cathartic release. So in this week's email, we're honoring Mental Health Awareness Month with a series of virtual events like a Movement Workshop with Jean Appolon, a panel on mental health and social distancing, a virtual exhibition on emotional healing, and more. Plus, on the ArtsBoston blog, we've compiled a list of resources for your emotional health and seven songs that bring us joy and hopefully will do the same for you. 

Stay safe, and we'll be back next week.
