The Effects of COVID-Survey Results
Thanks to everyone who took the time to share how COVID is affecting you and interfering with different aspects of your life.
95% of you that responded said you’ve been emotionally impacted by the concerns surrounding COVID-19. Almost 50% or you shared that you don’t have enough emotional support.
And according to the survey results, these are the primary struggles our community is facing:
- Mood and feeling depressed or anxious
- Mental focus and executive functioning
- Worried about the impact on others
Check out these short breathing practices for expanding your lung capacity and lowering feelings of panic and/or anxiety. Let me know how it goes.
Kirtan Kriya is a meditation that has been found to lower inflammation and improve cognitive function, helping with mental focus and executive functioning.

Here’s a recording I made of Kirtan Kriya for the Therapist Uncensored Podcast a few years back. It lets you dive right in to the meditation.
