Astronaut Jessica Meir returns to earth midst Covid-19

Imagine spending almost seven months at the International Space Station only to return to life on earth during a pandemic!

“When you look down on the Earth, you see this amazing, gorgeous planet and all the different landmasses and oceans, and you don’t see any of those political boundaries that we’ve drawn on a map. It’s so easy for us to realize that we’re in this together.”

That’s what Astronaut Jessica Meir had to say when she returned home on the 17th April 2020, after 205 days in space to a “completely different planet”.

You can read more about Jessica’s journey here.

As we head into the weekend in what is almost the middle of this extraordinary year, I thought I would share this beautiful perspective to lift ours. It’s time to step back from the minutiae and focus on who we need to be – and what we need to do over the coming months and beyond.

To help you to do this, I thought I’d share a Research Study you can participate in exchange for a real boost in self-awareness.

Contribute to a research study:

Dr Stewart Desson, CEO of Lumina Learning is conducting time-sensitive research “to investigate how our personality might impact our attitudes towards the COVID-19 crisis, and working remotely/from home”.

If you’d like to contribute, Stewart is offering a fabulous exchange in the form of two free personalised reports valued at over £200. The reports are short/simplified versions of both the Lumina Spark Profile and Lumina Emotion – assessing your thoughts, feelings and behaviours over the last 3 months, which will give you greater self-awareness. Always a good thing!

If you would like to take part, click on this link to get started.

Do you know of someone else who would benefit from greater self-awareness right now? If so, this offer is open to all so please feel free to share this with them.

Until next time, take good care of yourself.

Best, Louise
