M13 recently produced the first episode of Katie Couric's new series, Wake-Up Call with Katie Couric. In this episode, Katie is joined by Deepak Chopra and Sheryl Crow to discuss mindfulness, gratitude, the COVID-19 crisis, and moving forward collectively—a discussion that’s more important now than ever before. The group shared their experiences during this unprecedented time and offered insights on how creative minds can make the most of the situation.
Sheryl has been spending quality, intentional time with her family during the pandemic. From gardening to managing screen time, there is a more conscious effort in her household to slow down.
Deepak has considered the pandemic a wake-up call for humankind, and a time to get in touch with our true selves. In a world in crisis, COVID-19 also brings forth a time of healing.
Quieting my mind has been necessary for creative evolution—because that's where you meet yourself.
If everything was predictable, there would be no creativity. There would be no imagination, no aspiration for anything.
Busy has become a badge of honor. We're dependent on technology and not connecting. Community has dissolved. Let’s take this moment and move forward with what’s important.
