How We Can Protect Our Mental Health During the COVID-19 Crisis 

Welcome to Episode 68 of the Tourpreneur Podcast. Today’s podcast is a little different from our usual format. 

I invited Miranda Peterson of Namaste in Nature onto the show to share mental health and wellness strategies and tips for tour operators as we all struggle through the COVID-19 crisis.

A few weeks ago, I received an email from Miranda saying she was ‘here to help.’

Miranda’s email came at a time when I was struggling to get out of my funk. 

Her messaged offered wellness tips.

She wrote ‘Now, more than ever, it’s important to put extra effort into maintaining your mental, physical and emotional health. Even if you’ve never practiced yoga or meditation or hiking before, here are 108 reasons (health benefits) as to why you should give it a try or keep maintaining your current practice

I am the least ‘woo woo’ guy you will meet but much of what Miranda wrote, resonated with me. The importance of routine, movement, rest, nutrition, clearing the mind.
