How Coronavirus Can Positively Impact Your Life
Click Here For Description

Remember what life was like before coronavirus? It was busy; we were always in a rush and felt exhausted as we tried to achieve everything and anything while neglecting those closest to us.

But since COVID-19 took the world hostage (as some may say), we’ve been forced to reassess our lives – in a positive way. Whether it is our family life, love life or work life, our lives have slowed down and our priorities have shifted.

We are spending more time with our family and loved ones; we are working more effectively and spending time learning new skills. But most importantly, we are sleeping more, eating better and looking after our health after months, even years of neglect.

So, can coronavirus positively help our well-being?

In this weeks’ podcast, Sam discusses:

  • Our idea of a “normal” life before and after coronavirus
  • How the virus can positively impact our trees of life – health, love, family, work, learning, wealth
  • Tips on rebuilding your business following the pandemic

The Importance of Emotional Healing

Our mind is the most powerful tool in our body so why are we constantly neglecting to look after it?

From a young age, we are taught the importance of looking after our body. It is embedded in us that we must brush our teeth twice a day, if we break a bone; we go to the hospital, if we are sick; we stay in bed. But what happens if our mind is suffering from an “emotional wound”? We have we been taught so little when it comes to emotional healing that many of us would not even consider that our mind requires healing, yet expect our mind to perform at 100% at all times.

Today we are joined with a special guest, Best-Selling Author and Psychologist, Dr Guy Winch. Dr Winch will take us through how to overcome the emotional difficulties many of us struggle with regularly, these include:

> The effects of ruminating
