022 - 10 Tips for Navigating this Covid-19 Season

Welcome to The Fully Lived Life podcast! A podcast for those who are longing to pursue the full life and want to break free from anything that holds them back. Listen in as two friends - a psychologist, Dr. Merry and a life coach, Gillian - talk about life, love and purpose - with wisdom, humour and transparency -  through the lens of science, psychology, and life experiences.

Dear Listener- How are you doing during this stressful time?

Merry and Gillian both disclose how they are doing, what emotions are rising to the surface and what to do with this “new normal”. Some of us, like Merry, may be experiencing feelings of guilt, while others, like Gillian, are experiencing feelings of anger. We know from research on trauma that many of us are experiencing some trauma right now as our belief in our world being a safe place is broken.

Merry and Gillian share 10 tips to navigate through this time. Listen in as we flesh them out:

  1. Practice radical self acceptance.
  2. Check your normal expectations of each other - especially your housemates.
  3. Create alone space for yourself and each other.
  4. Expect “bad” behaviour.
  5. Connect with your loved ones.
  6. Practice good sleep hygiene.
  7. Establish good nutrition to fuel your body for stress responses.
  8. Practice self compassion -see Episode # 014.
  9. Escape!
  10. Daily ground yourself.
