Mindfulness Monday

Limit your news and be careful about what you read

All our social media feeds are filled with news, ideas, and opinions about what is happening right now. Take a step back and limit what you see. You can do this by restricting the amount of time you spend watching the news or reading articles pertaining to COVID-19. You can dedicate a specific time in your schedule where you catch up on news but, be sure not to go past your limit.

Make sure you are getting your news from trusted sources such as the CDC and other government websites, such as the Wisconsin Department of Public Health. These sites will have the most up to date and accurate information.

Consider taking this time to do a social media detox. You don’t even have to cut off social media completely, but you can mute key words or hashtags that may increase your anxiety.

Bottom line, do what you need to stay informed and educated and then focus your mind elsewhere after that.

Become a poll worker

Wisconsin is looking for citizens to serve as poll workers for the Tuesday, April 7, election. Many veteran poll workers are unable to work the polls so younger citizens are asked to step up. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic many Wisconsin cities, towns and villages are looking for extra volunteers to assist with running the election.

Those interested can find their clerk by searching using their home address. Click on the clerk’s email address to send him or her a message with “Poll Worker Applicant” in the subject line. Applicants should include a few words about their interests and their contact information   

To be a poll worker, a person must:  

  • Be a qualified elector of the county in which the municipality is located (i.e., an adult citizen of the United States who has resided in the election district for 10 consecutive days and is not otherwise disqualified to vote)  
  • Be at least 17 years-old  
  • Be able to read and write fluently in the English language   
  • Not be a candidate for any office to be voted on at the polling place at that election.   

Poll workers do everything from check-in voters, help people register to vote, check photo IDs and process absentee ballots. Local clerks will provide training prior to election day. This is a great opportunity for college students to get involved with the democratic process.
