CRISIS Management: How to Manage Stress #13 S.2

Whether it’s COVID-19 (the Corona Virus) or some other drastic event, everyone reacts differently in a crisis. Rarely are we trained in what to do, let alone, how to react.

As the COVID-19 crisis was developing, I admit that I wasn’t paying attention. After all, as you learned in last week’s podcast (episode 12), I had cut my cable to save money! Seriously, though, by the time this blew up, I went to the store to buy a couple of bottles of hand sanitizer and was absolutely FLOORED to discover empty aisles upon aisles at every store I went to. I was completely caught off guard by the severity of this crisis. By the time I figured out what was going on, it was too late. I was unprepared. The magnitude of this crisis left me feeling quickly overwhelmed. I felt almost paralyzed.

Today’s podcast explores helpful strategies you can try at home to survive any crisis. We talk about how to manage stress. Crisis management doesn’t come naturally. We’re here to help you figure this out.
