With everything that’s currently going on in the world, there’s a lot of fear, panic and uncertainty.

In this episode, Phil talks about three practices that can help you deal with uncertainty. He clarifies the three things that cause fear and shares an exercise you can use to overcome fears that come your way. We’ve been through it before, and we’ll probably go through it again but just remember: We’re still here.
