“Fear is a virus in itself.”
â€• Leo Varadkar, Taoiseach of Ireland (Prime Minister)
Most people reading this will find themselves in a new situation – where they will be working from home more than normal.
Something I learned years ago while going through a severe personal crisis, was I had to be very careful about the kind of information I consumed.
And I remember in the crash of 2008/09 that one of the biggest problems for my clients was the amount of negative information being consumed daily – which when they reduced helped their clarity considerably because it reduced the scale of the fear that had taken hold.
And this was before the tech revolution that brought 24/7 connectivity, social media and instant messaging.
But one of the great things about being so connected now is just that – we can connect with more people and more positive resources than ever before.
And as a small gesture, Iâ€™m sharing some things with you that I believe are better â€˜food for your mindâ€™. It may not be for today but perhaps you can refer to them in the coming days – when you’re mind needs some inspiration or distraction from the news.

3. Podcast Interview: Managing your state of mind and focusing on your inner game
I was interviewed on this Podcast this day last week for The Mastering Your Wellness Podcast hosted by Jayann Maher – and what a week since! So it was just before the corona virus accelerated into the Western World. But most of the content in the interview is still very relevant and may give you an angle to help your clarity, focus and state of mind right now.
A calm, clear mind is the essential skill for leadership and navigation now.
I hope the above helps you a little.
