A month has gone by in a flash since the last episode I published, and the world has massively changed since - at least much of the world has, as the COVID-19 virus has been declared a global pandemic. In France we have been confined to our homes for the past two weeks, asked to stay home aside for work essential to running the country, going out for groceries, and minimal physical exercise. If you're reading I'm sure you know all this.
Much of my world and media diet has been coronavirus related for more than two weeks now, and while there are experts talking about that side of things with more knowledge than I have, I wanted to record and share some of my thoughts of how it has been for me in the past couple of weeks, and hoping it is useful and resonates with some of your experience as well.
It's also a way to say I am still working on my podcast, and the next episode will be back to some "normal programming" even though as I mention, I'm still exploring what normal is for my podcast.
I think I forgot one important point in this recording, in case you read this, and that is the importance of taking care of your mind and emotions in this time of crisis. I'm even more diligent than usual about my daily meditation, and on that topic I recommend a great and short episode of Sam Harris' podcast: Meditation in an Emergency.
That's about it for now, I'll be back with more soon, stay home stay safe in the meantime!
