Saul: Across the world, pandemic-related restrictions are starting to lift. That means plenty of people are going back to work, but work has changed, perhaps forever. Many jobs have disappeared, and people are finding themselves suddenly unemployed. Other jobs may have unexpectedly different expectations. Before this spring, few people thought that grocery jobs would be in the front line of a pandemic. With all of the changes, it isn’t surprising that more people are reporting significant anxiety related to work, both about the safety of their jobs and about whether their jobs will continue to exist. Many of my clients are talking more about their work anxieties. They’re afraid to go into work but also afraid they’ll get fired if they complain or don’t go in. Others are suddenly finding that their jobs no longer exist. I’m Dr. Saul Rosenthal, and this is Life in the Time of Corona.

Welcome to episode 12 of this podcast. Today, we’re talking with Diane Wilson, a licensed clinical professional counselor, career counselor, and executive coach. She has recently written about career pivoting during the time of the coronavirus, and I was curious to hear what she has to say as more and more people return to a very different and quickly changing workforce. Diane specializes in using neuroscience to help her clients achieve peak performance. She is frequently interviewed for print, television, and radio about optimizing our careers and making the most out of work transitions. She’s also the author of Back in Control: How to Stay Sane, Productive, and Inspired in Your Career Transition. Diane, welcome to Life in the Time of Corona.

Diane: Thank you, happy to be here.

I’m Dr. Saul Rosenthal, a developmental and clinical health psychologist. Staying healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic is about more than the virus. We are all suddenly cut off from our normal lives, friendships, school, work, religious worship, even shopping and entertainment have all transformed overnight. In this podcast, I’ll talk with experts to get their perspectives on living our best lives in these difficult circumstances. We’ll talk about the professional advice and some of their personal experiences.

I’m really fortunate today to welcome Dr. Inna Khazan to the podcast. Dr. Khazan is an expert in mindfulness and biofeedback focusing on health psychology and optimal performance.

I’ll link to those in the show notes. She also has written two excellent books about biofeedback and mindfulness.
