When Ohio’s COVID-19 Stay at Home order went into effect, we put the search on hold, and I assumed the lead of our HR department until we can return our production facility and office to something approaching normal. Taking over these responsibilities at any other time would have been difficult, but taking over the HR responsibilities in the midst of a pandemic and with almost daily updates to federal stimulus laws and public health regulations to protect our employees, made it quite challenging indeed. At the same time, I was learning to work from home for the first time in my legal career.

As I’ve told friends and colleagues in recent weeks, I don’t know how I would have successfully navigated these extremely stressful times without my meditation practice. Based on my experience over the years I’ve been practicing meditation and from the increasingly important role meditation has played these past eight weeks or so, I want to provide some basic advice that I hope will help you get through these stressful times in one piece.
