Anxiety in the time of coronavirus (and in normal life) is the topic of a conversation with Dr. Jill Stoddard. We talk about Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and the wisdom (and sense of relief) of accepting anxiety and other emotions as part of life. Dr. Stoddard describes how we can distance ourselves from our thoughts in order to defuse them, and gives us some specific mental wellness exercises we can do while walking!
