Mapping COVID-19 Brain Related Stress with Donna Jackson Nakazawa #129

BY: Andrea Nakayama

DATE: 2020-03-31

Today’s episode is part of our COVID-19 special edition, and I’ve invited Donna Jackson Nakazawa back to the mic to speak into the brain-immune-stress response. The perceived stress that we are all experiencing right now is (unfortunately) counter to the immune response we’re after. Get ready to take a deep breath as Donna walks us through how to manage the messages we’re feeding our brains and maximize all that we can do differently to support ourselves and our clients during this challenging time.
