    How to spend your time during quarantine without feeling overwhelmed!

    How to spend your time during quarantine without feeling overwhelmed!

    I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sick of all the post about how to optimize your time while you're quarantined, but it's also hard to talk about anything else because it's playing such a huge role in our lives! 

    This episode is different, it's just me talking to my best friend, Hazel Vaughan,  about how we've been impacted by the coronavirus, the similarities and differences between what is going on in the US and in Australia, and how your perspective will make a difference in how you are experiences this wild time. 

    Outside of discussing the impact the virus is having on us, we talk about our favorite things to stream, easy ways to connect with your friends, and how to practice gratitude- always applicable, not just in times of turmoil :).  

    You can find Hazel on Insta @hazelfaughan or on Facebook at @hazelvaughan.

    IMPACT OF AGRICULTURE STATS:Food and agriculture is one part of this larger puzzle. It involves production, processing, distribution, access, consumption, and resource and waste recovery.


    20% of fossil fuel use in the US goes into the food system

    ⅓ of all GHGs in the US come from the food system


    39% from enteric gases

    10% from manure storage

    ONLY 6% from processing and storage

    And 45% from feed production!
