For many of us, COVID-19 has put our lives on hold - whether it is at work, in our love lives, with our family or even with our education. But what if we looked at this global pandemic differently?

What if we used this time as an opportunity to grow - grow as individuals, grow in our careers, even grow in our relationships? This week, Sam Makhoul sits down with health and fitness expert, Rob Lyon to discuss how each of us can better utilise this period from a mental and physical health point of view.

From building on our current skillsets to investing in new ones, to taking the time to focus on our relationships with loved ones; he covers it all. Rob and Sam also deep dive into:

  • How our working lives have changed forever
  • How COVID-19 has made us fearful and anxious
  • The importance of creating a routine at home
  • How mental and physical health trumps intelligence (and why)
