19: Discomfort Not Danger: Surviving the COVID Mind

We are all living with massive uncertainty and fear every day caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, unprecedented unemployment, and civil unrest. Our minds are overwhelmed with the stress and anxiety at the upending of every aspect of our lives. This COVID Mind has kicked us out of our comfort zone and our life as we knew it. What is all this doing to our minds and our bodies? In this podcast, Los Angeles-based Psychotherapist, John Tsilimparis, MFT, joins us once again to help us understand what is the COVID Mind; what the short- and long-term effects all of this stress is having on us. How do we help ourselves and our children cope with uncertainty? He gives us tips and tools he uses to help us focus and calm our fears and emotions. He also walks us through a mindfulness exercise we can all use anytime to access and activate our “boss mind” to create our new comfort zone where our mind and body can get through even the most fearful times.
