At the moment, there is no escape or let up from this global pandemic. So, I felt it was right to dedicate and focus a show on this topic. This podcast takes information from resources from a recent blog post I wrote around the five ways of wellbeing and Coronavirus. 

In this episode, I’m going to share with you lots of resources around how you can still connect with people in a way that is safe for you and for others. 

In today’s show, we talk about:

  • How to reach out to me if you need help at this time. [01:55]
  • My ideas on how we can connect during this time. [04:05]
  • The importance of exercising and how to keep fit during social isolation. [06:35]
  • How to practice mindfulness during this period. [09:33]
  • Why we need to keep learning and how to do so safely at home. [11:37]
