Olivia DeRamus wants Restless to be a safe haven for your anxiety, so here’s some COVID-19 news that might help you breathe easier
As you already know, the coronavirus pandemic is something to take extremely seriously. We’re all deeply anxious about what’s going to happen next, whether or not we’re going to get it, and wondering if our loved ones will be ok.
Restless Magazine has never been a breaking news website. Instead, we strive to be a resource for womxn in what seems to be an increasingly uncertain world. While watching the situation worsen throughout the globe, we have had to think long and hard about how we could be a positive force in the midst of all the noise, fear, and misinformation swirling around the web. What we ultimately have decided on is that, in the coming days, we must be a resource for positivity. We want this to be a safe haven for your mind and wellbeing.

I know that reading the below helped me to breath a little easier at least and I hope it impacts you that way too. Otherwise, for breaking news and a full picture of the situation, make sure that your news sources are reliable. I would recommend The New York Times and following the direction of The World Health Organization. Read on for an injection of positivity in the midst of what I’m sure seems like a chaotic mess of information.
So, the world’s governments and institutions are rallying to contain the spread of the virus.
