We are living through an event like no other in history,
taking place in a globally connected world where
information travels at the speed of light.
Even faster than the virus.
And this is also where our advantage lies: through information and behaviour.
How we process information under threat and how we behave are the most important factors in stopping – or failing to stop – the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
That’s what this book is all about.
It’s about understanding how behaviour is the best tool available to help us adjust to the shifting demands of Covid-19 and other future crises, even after vaccines are delivered.
It’s about strengthening your capacity to ride the waves of Covid-19 — as well as life’s general ups and downs — with more calm, ease and a sense of groundedness.
This book draws on my thirty years of experience as a psychologist to offer you a guide to better mental health through and beyond the coronavirus pandemic, helping you to keep calm in a world gone viral.
