If there was ever a time to be the change that can change the world it’s now. Right now.  The COVID-19 pandemic has brought awareness to an undeniable truth:  we are all connected.

This unique situation is pushing all of us to learn how to thrive in the face of adversity to ensure we survive this virus with minimal consequences.  As world-renowned Functional Medicine Doctor, Dr. Mark Hyman said in his recent webinarit is time for us to “surthrive”.  The goal of ‘surthrival’ is to become unwelcome hosts to this virus, and the only way to do that is to build our immunity.This is how we can protect ourselves, our families and our community.

Helping each of us become our best selves in order to make this world better for all, has always been the mission of The Design Your Life Centre; this situation has just highlighted that it is indeed needed now more than ever before.    Because learning how to stop living a fear-based life and actually designing a life that is aligned with one’s true self, not only helps us feel better, it allows us to show up as our better versions for everyone else too.

We cannot emphasize enough how important your mental health is for maximizing immune functioning.  You can take all of the vitamin C you can swallow, but if you are feeling stressed when you are doing it, you will not absorb and integrate the benefit that supplement is designed to deliver.

In order to help, we continue to provide one-on-one psychological services through secure video conferencing and will do so in this way for as long as physical distancing is advised.  Click here or use the BOOK NOW button on the website to find the time that best suits you.

We are also working hard to create free and low-cost resources in order to support as many people as possible through this challenging time.  Here is one of them:  The Growing Forward Journal is a guided journal I created to help people grow consciously through anything.  It has evolved into The Growing Forward Soul School, an online community where we learn evidence-based tools, practice them together, and inspire each other with the wisdom that comes through.   It will be free for as long as it needs to be during the COVID-19 pandemic. Download the journal here. Use it.  Share it.  And Follow us on instagram @growingforwardsoulschool for daily support, inspiration, and community.

We have other ideas for quick and easy tools as well as groups we can facilitate online but we’d like to hear from you about what it is you need.  Email us at dr.stacy@drstacythomas.com with what would be most helpful to you now and we will build it for you.


We will get through this and we can come out the other side even better than before.

Take Care.  Be Well.

We look forward to seeing you soon and continuing to help you Design Your Life.
