Life's filled with a ton of curveballs and hurdles. But, do you make sense of them?
Since Jenina experienced a stroke in her sleep, she’s made it her mission to embrace a half-glass perspective. If she was going to recover and make sense of a life event that threw her for a loop, she was going to learn and grow from it.
Enter the blog and podcast, “This Life, Reconsidered”. In each episode, Jenina focuses on self-care, managing your personal health and the value of reframing issues to ultimately learn from the stuff you just can't control.
With so much to consider, Jenina likes to think this experience gave way to her personal ‘stroke of wisdom’ – you’re meant to learn from the stuff you go through if you’re open to it.
Jenina doesn’t claim to be an expert, just learning to look the glass half full while making sure to put self-care first.

So, in the wake of Black Lives Matter, companies of all sizes are choosing to embark on a road to course correct hiring, business practices, marketing and even the causes their support. That said, although these efforts are positives, this scramble to make such drastic changes begs the questions: what's to it? How authentic is it? And, how are they going to appease audiences to let them know they're working on the issue that should have been addressed long ago?

Learning from Moments of Crisis
When navigating a crisis (or a pandemic), what normal looks like also change. That said, I highlighted a handful of lessons to try and keep things in perspective.

Social Distancing, Reconsidered (The Pandemic Effect or COVID-19)
Since coronavirus (or known as COVID-19) has evolved from epidemic to pandemic, it's immediately led to illness, death and changing the way we live -- even the way we interact. In this episode, host Jenina Nunez talks to therapist Monica Gonzalez of Balanced Lotus Counseling & Wellness about one of the byproducts of this current global crisis -- the impact of social distancing.
