Ep 29: Managing Anxiety & Cultivating Positivity

—  found in  Well-being  —

In this episode, Walker and I share how we are managing work, parenting and life in general during COVID-19. We share the strategies we are using to help manage anxiety and cultivate positivity like eating banana bread (kidding, sort of). It's something that we are taking actionable steps towards every day. Through difficult times it's important to remind ourselves that we are resilient and I've got a pile of mantras and affirmations I've been using!

That being said, some days I feel like we are slaying it and there are moments I feel like crying -- but through it all, we are staying connected virtually to family and friends by "physical distancing" to keep our community close as that is essential to wellness.
