Post Pandemic Serenity

We're slowly climbing out of a year surrounded by worldwide chaos. A pandemic, riots, elections. After minimal human contact for so long, it can feel overwhelming to walk into a coffee shop and order a drink or even to have more than a zoom call with our families. Where is a balance to be found as we begin to return to a state of pre-pandemic normality? How can we take what we've learned in the past 14 months to establish a peaceful mentality?

Join Mary and Deb on this episode of Becoming Well as we explore just that and learn what you can do to practice good habits in the building of peace in your minds and in your lives.
