When in Doubt, Shake It Out
Kati Morton, YouTube star and licensed marriage and family therapist, talks about how our mental health has changed during the pandemic. She offers practical, usable advice on how to release the anxious energy that’s been building up inside of us these past 9 months. Plus, why we need to start having open, honest conversations with our kids about what’s going on with the pandemic. “I'd encourage you to not sugarcoat it. You can say it's really scary. I don't understand a lot of things. I'm not a scientist. This is what they're telling us. This is what we're doing. This is why we're wearing masks. This is why I was sad the other day. We need to put context to it.” You can follow Kati Morton on Twitter and Instagram @katimorton. Support the show by checking out our sponsors!
