Top Ten Posts in March, #ICYMI

I am having a hard time believing that some of these posts were written just a month ago. March has felt years long.

The most read post in March wasn’t even about Covid-19! Imagine that. It was Catherine’s post about early mornings.

The persistent demands of early morning self-care

But number two is when the Covid-19 posts begin, with Cate wondering about a feminist response to the pandemic. (Was it even a pandemic then? I don’t remember. It’s all a blur.) Is there a feminist response to Covid19?

The third most read post of the month was about stress eating in the time of Covid-19. Thanks to guest blogger Megan Dean for Stress eating in the time of Covid-19.

Prioritizing your mental fitness was the fourth most read post of the month. Thanks Martha for that important reminder.

Cate had more excellent advice, this time about working from home, something she’s a pro at. See I’ve worked at home for 25 years: my (unorthodox) insights. That was the fifth most read post of the month. I can say I’ve reread it a few times!

And sixth, Cate’s everlasting still menstruating post!

Seventh was Catherine’s very funny rant about bad exercise advice from Livestrong.

Catherine’s more serious post about not changing everything was our eighth most read post in March.

Everything is changing, against blurry white and dark green background.
Everything is changing.
