Easing into the “New Normal,” part 1

Ricki talks about easing into the new normal part 1

 There’s no doubt about it, we’re living in a new reality.

It might be one we didn’t ask for, and might be one that is throwing myriad new challenges our way–but whether we like it or not, it’s here.

How are you adjusting? Are you finding ways to carve out new routines for yourself, or ways to retain a sense of normalcy?

Part of humans’ unique place on the planet is our ability to adapt and change when needed. Throughout history, people have been able to inhabit new places, invent new tools, or compensate for physical weakness through our incredible adaptability.

In today’s video, I talk about the very first step that’s necessary to learn to live well in this “new normal.”

Because like it or not, it’s here, and those who adapt are the ones who’ll continue to thrive–and even grow.
