Unless you’re old enough to remember the Cuban missile crisis or the Great Depression, Covid-19 is likely the worst global calamity you’ve experienced.

As a result, you’ve likely noticed some stress-based reactions. Maybe you’re having trouble concentrating, or you’re binging news, Netflix and junk food. Some people even wake up at night to a wall of worry.

Mindfulness coach and therapist Brian Shiers has strategies to help you cope with the pandemic’s emotional fallout. Shiers started meditating when he was 25, and he was among the first practitioners trained at UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center. He works with individuals and companies, including Salesforce, Disney and Nestle.
