Definitely Nan.

yes

When we notice we are in it if able take 3-5 minutes to recenter by affirmations/ deep breathing,
Shari Henry
01:19:08
Oliva, there is a library that is now branding themselves centered on Kindness. We are adopting some of what they are doing for a new campaign for kindness, so to speak, including t'shirts that blend kindness with our already existing tagline. Thanks for bringing it up.
Amy White
01:19:34
wonderful suggestions and mindset
Nan Carmack
01:19:35
beautiful, Shari!
Nan Carmack
01:19:53
can you share the library so we can all look at it?
Shari Henry
01:20:52
Yes. I'll have to find it - teleworking today means one screen. :-)
Nan Carmack
01:21:07
:)
Jessica Hartley
01:21:22
Also important to pair Empathy with Kindness. Trying to understand and/or identify with the person in addition to showing compassion is crucial.

“High functioning”
Jill Minor
01:24:04
If you have been *extremely* traumatized you might be leery of working in the Empathy and Kindness Library, because kindness has backfired and made you vulnerable to abuse in the past. . .people who have suffered abuse need to feel very safe in order to extend kindness
Amy White
01:24:19
will they be having a harder time dealing with things in our current situation too?

any advice with it harder to see facial expressions?
Rebeca Parrott

I've decided to wave more often at my patrons when they arrive. Since they can't really see my smile.

Lauri Thompson

Gay Acompanado
01:43:47
Yes on smiling eyes, Nan!
Jill Minor
01:43:58
waving! great idea
Dana Bomba
01:44:09
communicate to compensate for not being able to let your facial expressions do the work.
julialebreton
01:44:13
Any time face is covered subconsciously causes sense of distrust at least at first.

Smiling is still important. It definitely makes a difference for more than just a facial expression. It makes a difference in your voice, posture, etc.
Maria M. Dillon

Smiling It makes you feel good

emily
01:48:28
All this goes to say that because one person finds comfort in something like this, others can be very uncomforted.
Dana Bomba

Regarding the earlier exchange on touching: I was raised as a hugger, but my professional formation in the military re-trained me to not break into peoples personal space except maybe for handshakes. I feel that it reinforces my agency and autonomy over my own body, especially as a female in a predominantly male setting. But, in the civilian world, it just comes across as stand-offish. Ah well.

But my husband is on FB on and off all day, so I get the 'highlights' when I get home. Ugh!
Nan Carmack
02:07:35
@Eleanor: I made mine stop.
Tiffany Hayes
02:07:43
@Eleanor, my partner does this too, it's stressful!
Eleanor Mullens
02:07:48
@Nan - Good idea.
Amy White
02:08:05
Do you have a suggestion of key words or words to avoid?
Nan Carmack
02:08:06
I hold up my hand and say--not today!
Nan Carmack

Sharing joy - I have been sending out a Friday Funnies list of jokes to my colleagues at the end of each week since the pandemic impacted us all.
Anita Libby
02:08:46
My husband makes me not look at work email at home. That has made a big difference in my well-being
julialebreton
02:09:25
@Norma Jean, that’s a great idea. What a way to help people end their week on a positive note!
Tiffany Hayes
02:09:29
since working from home I miss the "hallway chats" with my team at work. formal meetings not the same. I'm trying to deliberately connect more.
Gay Acompanado
02:10:23
@Norma Jean...that's a great way to keep everyone's spirits up.
chudson
02:10:26
we created the "hallway" chat in MS Teams. A page for keeping up as people not just colleagues
Robert Stone
02:10:36
It is harder to leave work at work when work is at home...
Nan Carmack
02:10:50
fascinating idea!
Kisha Hughes
02:10:54
Agreed, Robert
Dawn Nyce
02:11:22
This was my approach to leading when I began at the library and it was a very new concept for my staff. It took some time for them to get on board and join me with their ideas.
Jill Minor
02:11:27
I came back into the library early. Working at home stopped working for me
Nan Carmack
02:11:33
Kisha/Robert: I make a ritual of closing my computer and walking away.
Eleanor Mullens
02:11:35
@Robert - Yes, very hard to disengage when WFH. I've been having to consciously remind myself not to self-shame for not being as productive as I normally would be.
Dana Bomba
02:11:56
@Nan yes, I also turn the sound off during lunch so I can't hear the pings of notifications.
Nan Carmack
02:12:06
yes--me too!
Anita Libby
02:12:25
Good idea, Dana.
Kristin Noell
02:12:32
Talk less, smile more ;)
Marien Villaman-Chodl
02:12:34
My division is closed on the weekends - I turn off email notifications then, or else messages keep on coming in for me.
Dana Bomba
02:12:40
Listening more - best thing I learned from Nan years ago! :)
Maria M. Dillon
02:12:43
I'm working hard on listening more
Nan Carmack
02:12:48
<3
Kisha Hughes
02:12:51
Agreed, Nan! I cleanse my workspace and literally hide my computer from myself. Energetically, I am trying to create more space for myself
Gay Acompanado
02:13:00

Jill Minor
02:13:01
social media librarians cannot disengage on weekends :(
julialebreton
02:13:01
It’s been hard to build a routine even when back at work as we don’t know how things are going to develop/ change either towards greater opening or going back to being closed.
Norma Jean Scott
02:13:04
We have 2 ears and one mouth. Listen twice as hard before speaking.
Maria M. Dillon
02:13:32
Yes
Anita Libby
02:13:54
I love that!
Norma Jean Scott
02:14:20
When I end my Friday Funnies email, I close with this "Stay safe and remember to do something nice for yourself today."
Robert Stone
02:14:21
I try to remember... always, sometimes I forget
Nan Carmack
02:14:38
Norma Jean--lovely@
Jessica Hartley
02:14:49
definitely, self care and prioritizing health was a hard lesson learned this year.
Dawn Nyce
02:14:51
One of my former coworkers had a "funny file" for moments that she needed to laugh.
Valerie Gardner
02:15:11
I have a funny file too! It works!
Eleanor Mullens
02:15:36
My sister shared that she listens to comedy podcasts when she needs a 'self-care' pick me up but still needs eyes free to get work done
Nan Carmack
02:16:17
guilty of giving until its all gone
Eleanor Mullens
02:16:29
What I learned in the military: No one will take better care of you than you will.

I've watched SGA, Some Good News on YouTube and it lifted my spirits...
Amy White

@Amy yes!

julialebreton
02:17:10
Yes, feel like I am abandoning my team if I take a day off especially when we are understaffed. I do feel like that leads me to burnout. It’s because of the pandemic that I was able to get back to a state of rest from having to work from home for a few months.
Eleanor Mullens
02:17:16
@Amy - most definitely!
Reagen Thalacker
02:17:44
@Julie - Me too! I have a bad habit of not taking the vacation days that I should.
Jill Minor
02:17:54
My secret guilty pleasure is the detective/hidden object iPad game from Big Fish
Dana Bomba
02:17:58
@Julie me too!
Anita Libby
02:18:12
I feel the same way Julie. I'm definitely working on that one
Marien Villaman-Chodl
02:18:45
I'm too new at my job to have days off yet. But my guilty pleasure for unwinding is K-pop soap operas
Jill Minor
02:18:51
And TikTok. Even if China is spying on me, those kids are just hysterically funny.
Eleanor Mullens
02:19:09
Maybe we should be thinking of taking time off as rotating shiftwork. Today your job is to take time off and tomorrow it will be my turn.
julialebreton
02:19:29
I know that I need to protect myself now looking back on how stressed I was. Didn’t realize it as well until I came out of it. @Eleanor great point!
Tiffany Hayes
02:19:48
it's a good example, too, for other staff if the manager takes time off
Nan Carmack
02:19:59
yes Tiffany
Jill Minor
02:20:03
I spent four months earning PTO. I need to protect myself by using it.
julialebreton
02:20:46
@Jill, Yes!
