While the COVID pandemic is spreading, I wanted to encourage us to manage what is within our control, including flattening the curve. This episode also includes reminders that now more than ever caring for yourself IS caring for others.
We can accept reality while offering hope. You'll hear from Dr.
Krista Olsen, a full time obstetrician and certified coach in our
program. She was COVID positive with fever, cough, and
myalgia. She and her family fully recovered and she is back
to clinical care.
Her story serves as a reminder that this is actually the expected and most common course of this disease. While we can learn to prepare for other scenarios, we must purposefully remind our brains that most who get sick will recover. Listen in to hear how she managed her mind through the symptoms, diagnosis, and recovery.
