Updated: May 28, 2020

We continue to seek out dope guests who we feel can impart their wisdom on our audience during this challenging and uneasy time that we are experiencing as a Nation and as a Community.

That's why we are excited that Margaret Brunson joined us for this episode, where we continue our conversation about coping strategies you can start incorporating today to navigate this pandemic. We also take a deeper dive into the question: Who do you want to be after COVID-19?

Margaret has spent the last 15 years loving and leading in education and public health with a focus on working with mental health providers and non-profit organizations. She is the founder and CEO of Illumined Leadership Solutions and an inspirational speaker and author. She earned her B.A. in Psychology from the University of North Carolina, an M.A. in Public Administration from North Carolina Central University, and her Ph.D. in Leadership Studies from the North Carolina A&T.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • How to embrace who you are during this pandemic

  • The importance of movement, connection, and just being is to wellness

  • And, so much more

Grab your pens. It's time to take notes!

Margaret's toolkit for mental health and well-being:

  • Homebodies + Heroes - a guide for finding black therapist and podcast

  • Essentialism - recommended book

  • "The wound is where the light enters you" - motivational quote by Rumi
