With the situation changing daily, fear and uncertainty can loom bigger than ever. Whether you are particularly vulnerable to the virus or feel helpless for loved ones who are; affected by the anxiety and overwhelm as you watch the news; or are under pressure to weigh your finances against taking care of your health, my thoughts are with you. Substance use can seem like a good idea at first by giving us an immediate sense of control. But, the long term costs far outweigh any short term benefits. As we come to terms with our new reality and adjust our relational worlds, lets begin having the conversations that move us towards love (and a dope soul) during covid-19.
Here are a few curated podcasts for your dope soul (say it loud and proud)!
Move past the ideas that we need to merely survive this pandemic, we need not only to take care of our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health, but to be creative and set boundaries within our relationships and end relationships that no longer serve us.
Let us become more aware of all the ways we are connected even as we keep to ourselves. It may not be more clear than it is right now during this pandemic. If it wasn’t apparent before the pandemic, I hope we take away positive benefits-better relationships, greater sense of strength and compassion, greater self-worth, and a pinch of carpe diem (or a better appreciation of life)!
