One of the cognitive biases we have seen rise with this COVID-19 pandemic is the tendency to focus on our fears about things we cannot control.

5 TIPS To Ride The Second WAVE Of COVID-19
None of us ever imagined experiencing in our lifetime the upside-down world we are now living in. Navigating the ever-changing learning situations for our kids, shared time with family and friends, and even reinventing ways to celebrate the holidays can feel overwhelming at times, especially amidst frequent reports of spikes in the curve and the widespread fear that is permeating the globe. This is a time when exercising our creativity is crucial. While change is inherently difficult, it also opens new possibilities, as long as we are able to manage our stress and stay focused on leveraging aspects of our world that we do have control of instead of feeling debilitated by the tsunami of fear and uncertainty about the things we cannot control. Shifting perspective is good medicine.
Often, the simplest things can make the biggest difference. In this article just published in the Autumn issue of New Roots Herbal’s FLOURISH Magazine, I share a few tips to help you ride the second wave of this COVID-19 storm more effectively.
