138 – Pandemic solutions from the bottom up, can-do spirit, repairing connection ruptures


Once again, bringing AeroNabs to market needs to be prioritized along with ubiquitous testing (including at home), so society can return to some semblance of normalcy. Top-down command-and-control institutions hinder this process and thwart new innovations and their implementation. America needs to revitalize its bottom-up can-do spirit! We can honor our capacity for achievement and view life as an exciting and challenging adventure. We also need to be mindful of feelings of overwhelm and learn how to soothe ourselves via self-acceptance, self-empathy, and self-compassion. Just as vital is doing the repair work for various ruptures in connection experienced internally and interpersonally. Balance can be attained to honor autonomy and connection needs. Even toxic ruptures can repaired in an empathetic, effective, and timely manner, so self-esteem can be restored. On the physical side, a “one-minute workout” can do wonders, along with a lower-carb, higher-fat, adequate-protein regimen.
