Being Well Podcast: Coping with Quarantine
April 6, 2020

In this episode, we explore how individuals and families can deal with the interpersonal stress that comes from being stuck together and the sadness and loss that comes from being separated from things we love.

Over the last month, many people have been stuck at home coping with quarantine – occasionally with people they’d rather not be around. Maintaining a healthy relationship can be a struggle under the best of times, let alone during times of stress. 

In this episode, we explore how individuals and families can deal with the interpersonal stress that comes from being stuck together and the sadness and loss that comes from being separated from things we love.

New Book: If you’re interested in Dr. Hanson’s work, you’ll love his new book, Neurodharma. It explores the new science and ancient wisdom for being as wise and strong, happy and loving, as any person can ever be.

The breakthroughs of the great teachers are not reserved for the chosen few. Neurodharma shares seven practices for embodying them ourselves in daily life to handle stress, heal old pain, feel at ease with others, and rest in the sense of our natural goodness. By strengthening the neural circuitry of profound contentment and inner peace, you’ll cultivate an unshakable presence of mind, a courageous heart, and serenity in a changing world.

With deep research, stories, guided meditations, examples, and applications, Dr. Hanson offers a fascinating, inspiring vision of who we can be – and an effective path for fulfilling this wonderful possibility.
