On a scale of plastic, how are you doing today?

In March, all work-related meetings moved online, and facilitators had to find new ways to gauge the comfort and interest levels of participants. I have been in several Zoom calls that began with “On a scale of a cat, how are you feeling?” memes. These humorous check-ins can relax the audience while allowing the presenter to acknowledge that some people might be feeling stressed or overwhelmed.

So now, I sincerely want to know how you are doing. Please check in by choosing the plastic face that expresses how you are feeling. Then add the corresponding number to the comments and explain why you picked it.

By sharing our current states of being along with what makes us happy and gives us hope, and by expressing our deepest fears and things that make us angry, we can lift each other up and support one another during these uncertain times—and beyond.
