How To Support Your Spiritual Health In The Time Of COVID-19

Episode 102 1h
Topics Overview


We’re all trying to make sense of the new world order. And while my wife and I stay at home and navigate these unusual times, we find routine and practice to be the core of our wellbeing. We’re meditating every morning, going for walks in the woods, and taking afternoon work breaks to check-in and find time to connect. These seemingly simple actions have become the parts of our day that keep us grounded and optimistic, so we actually even schedule them into our calendars. One of my favorite people to talk to about the benefits of spiritual and wellness practices is Gabrielle Bernstein. I was so happy to connect with her over a video-call for this week’s episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy. Gabby provides a calm perspective to the crazy situation we find ourselves in. She is staying aligned with her personal spiritual practice and shares how we can all do so in various ways, simply by taking some quiet time and space. Being isolated at home can be particularly challenging if your normal routine and structure are totally gone. Now is the time to embrace new practices and schedule them into your day to keep your mental and physical health sharp. One of Gabby’s favorite practices is her Daily Design Method. When you wake up each morning ask yourself: How do I want to feel today? Who do I want to be today? What do I want to give today? What do I want to receive today? Journaling the answers to questions like these is an amazing way to set up your day for productivity and positivity. Gabby shares her personal story of struggling with mental health, after experiencing postpartum depression, insomnia, and suicidal thoughts after giving birth. She understands this time is bringing about a lot of anxiety for people and provides some actionable tips on stopping the loop of negative limiting thoughts and redefining our own sense of self. You can order Gabby's new book, Super Attractor, right here and ger her free Positive Energy Meditation here. There is so much powerful information to ease the global angst in this week’s episode. I hope you’ll tune in. This episode is sponsored by Joovv and Four Sigmatic. I recently discovered Joovv, a red light therapy device.
