During their conversation, Gwyneth discussed what she’s discovered about life amid the pandemic.

“I had not realized how much the normal pace of life was overburdening our bodies, our minds, and our nervous systems. As we have been forced into the confines of our own homes, that has brought up a lot of emotional distress for some, and for others it has been very peaceful. In my case, I have experienced both. I have started to settle down in my brain and body. It has given me new perspective about how much I will take on going forward,” she revealed.

“I was constantly trying to pack in wellness moments, but I wasn’t really decompressing until the weekend or when I went on vacation. Now I feel different, letting my body go to sleep and wake up in its natural rhythm, having my kids around all the time, eating meals together and having meaningful conversations. We linger at the table; our dinners are an hour and a half long. My heart feels fuller, and my mind feels calmer in that respect.”
