I recently traveled to Tulum, Mexico, for a much-needed getaway… Yes, in the middle of a pandemic. Like mostly everyone else in California, I had been inside since mid-March. I hadn’t planned on traveling until at least next summer. I consider myself an “extroverted-introvert”: I enjoy my own company, but I like the option to go out and do things and be around other people as needed. Having no choice but being stuck at home for months, combined with nonstop bad news of the world, was starting to eat away at my mental health.
