Have you ever wondered why some people can keep a healthy work/life balance and positive outlook during challenging times?

They also chat about both the short term and long term effects this pandemic may have on our mental health, so it’s vital that we focus on positive mental health now and in the future, and the 5 pillars of health that will have a positive impact on our lives.   There is NEVER a better time than now, but how exactly do we take care of ourselves though chaos? How do we support others in our lives that we care for? What is mental fortitude, and how do we work towards it?   They also discuss how as parents we can help our children navigate the strangest time in their lives they’ll likely ever face, this pandemic! Sometimes we are not able to replace these experiences as parents, but we can equip them with coping strategies so that they can thrive, and help them deal with fear and the unknown.
