Extension is expanding its online education and resources to adapt to COVID-19 restrictions.

Special episode 04: Focusing on what you can choose

(Air date: July 10, 2020)

It is normal to feel overwhelmed as we face the issues in front of us. Join a conversation with Extension educators Christy Kallevig, Lori Rothstein and Denise Stromme as they discuss why we experience these feelings, and how we can calm our minds.

In this special series, we are looking back on webinars and articles shared early during the pandemic, revisiting how that information needs to shift for our current reality.

"When you make the choices that are authentic and true to you, you are going to be more satisfied with the decisions that you have made."

— Denise Stromme
