Physical distancing has become the norm around the world as we deal with an unparalleled crisis. Many of us stuck at home may feel anxiety and fear for the uncertain future ahead of us. Our emotions can take over making it harder for us to cope, while others shut down completely.

But rather than let our emotions flood our mind and affect our well-being, we have the power to act.

In this episode, Deirdre Fay and I talk about managing our emotions during the current pandemic and recognizing and reframing our triggers. This crisis has rocked the already troubled American healthcare system, so we need to step up and help our frontliners. Deirdre and I also discuss the role belief plays in reaching our potential and guides us through her waterfall breath to relieve stress.

We will overcome this crisis. If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed or haven’t felt anything at all, tune in and hopefully, you’ll find the help that you need in this episode!
