Don't expose yourself to an overload of updates. Guided meditation and deep breathing are things we can do to take control of our mental health.
On this episode I chat to Dr Joe Kosterich about how concerned we should be around the Coronavirus / COVID-19. We discuss the hysteria around Social Media and how to look after our mental health & by choosing when to switch off to the news.
We also touch into the economic impact the virus will have vs the impact of lives lost and whether Australia has moved fast enough as a nation. Fear and anxiety is also a contagious factor and as individuals we can take control by becoming aware of negativity, showing more gratitude and kindness in order to escape the herd mentality.
