103// How to find Gratitude and Happiness in Times of Stress, Grief and Loss: COVID-19 Pandemic and Finding Self Compassion

 

Today, on the best fitness podcast, I invited back Dr. Gillian Mandich, Canada’s Happiness Doctor.

We spoke about the sobering truth that this Pandemic has shifted the happiness quotient across the globe. And although I was hoping for an answer of how we can all improve our emotions at this time and perhaps lean towards happiness, the reality is bleak… However, Dr. Gillian speaks about how we can take simple things and support our mental health, and how creating community in times like these, is the greatest, scientifically proven way to boost your immune system.

In today’s episode you will learn:

  1. How staying connected with one or two people over the phone, can boost your mood and make you feel connected.
  2. How finding news from credible sources and avoiding binge watching news is important for your mental health.
  3. How self compassion and self care is really important; even if self care right now is doing nothing and watching netflix and chill
  4. How to do the 3-3-3 exercise: That this simple exercise can help mitigate anxiety and help you find gratitude when it might seem difficult right now.
