It’s Okay If You’re Not Working On Improvement During The Coronavirus- 095
In Episode 95, we discuss the fact that it’s okay if you’re not working on improvement during the coronavirus. This past week, we came across a video, a podcast and an article that helped us to articulate some of what we are feeling during this weird time and perhaps you might be feeling it too.
We want to share them with you and discuss what we each took out of them that hopefully will help you to make sense of what you might be feeling and experiencing right now in the midst of a global pandemic.
We certainly haven’t got this all figured out. And you probably haven’t either. But we think that there are some very manageable ways we can feel a little better right now, and release the pressure of the unrealistic expectations many of us are putting on ourselves to ‘improve’ and ‘be our best selves’ in what is already a very difficult time.
In Ooh Me Likey, Jenny is into a board game and I’m liking an older movie that John convinced me to watch.
In You Win or You Learn, we decided once again that nearly everything about the current time in history is a learn and so we are both sharing a win again this week.
