Bonus: Coping During COVID-19: How to Stay Happier and Calmer in Difficult Times

Happier with Gretchen Rubin - March 15, 2020 - 32:25

In this time of COVID-19, we’re all feeling overwhelmed with anxiety and uncertainty. To stay calmer and happier, we discuss why you might keep some kind of journal during this period, and why you might create a three-tiered plan for projects – or, alternatively, write a “19 for COVID-19” list.
