Navigating Optimistically Through COVID

Navigating Optimistically Through Covid with Carolyn King

The covid-19 pandemic has made life uncomfortable and challenging in every aspect of life globally. Australia, for instance, has been in lockdown and curfew for over 200 days as necessary measures to curb the further spread of the novel coronavirus. People can’t even go out except to get a few essentials. Social interactions have been limited to virtual meetings, taking away the human nature of being social beings. Additionally, companies have been closed, and thousands have lost jobs rendering a lot of people hopeless.

In this other exciting episode of the Success and Happiness Podcast, I am joined by Carolyn King. We chat about how you can get help to navigate these abnormal days optimistically, how Optimism can be genetically passed from one generation to another, and how to build resilience during hard times. Various social support and social contact tools such as zoom and WhatsApp can be used for virtual partying and meetings, so as to relieve day’s tension and stress. We also highlight some of the profitable activities that you can get engaged with, during the covid -19 pandemic.


Carolyn is a kinesiologist, speaker, author, host of The Happiness Hour, and ambassador for the Human Wisdom Project. Her passion is to empower individuals to reconnect with their Innate Happiness. Today’s episode is aimed at giving you hope. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
