In today’s episode, host Sarah Southwell speaks about COVID-19 and wades into waters that are so thick that they’re more like boiling tar pits. A key theme that’s raised early in our discussion, Sarah highlights the importance of trusting your intuition and making up your mind on what you should be doing about the pandemic. Accordingly, we talk about the need to have conversations with our loved ones about what makes us feel safe. Sarah also recommends that we develop a strict set of parameters for feeling safe — parameters that we should embrace so that we don’t live in a state of fear. After sharing why she has developed a distrust for the government, Sarah points to government practices that are harmful to our health. Wading even further into the tar pits, Sarah questions whether the government has our best interests at heart before exploring what they could be doing to keep us healthy. We then reflect on the mental health dangers of social isolation and what the pandemic is costing us. Near the end of the episode, Sarah emphasizes her mission to empower people. As she explains, it’s up to us to decide how we want to handle COVID-19. Tune in to hear more of Sarah’s insights into managing your health and home during the COVID-19 crisis.
