Post Covid life presents an opportunity to reset.


The doors to our Post Covid lives are about to open. The question now is do you pick up right where you left off prior to Covid or do you reset to a new Post Covid life? The second virtual Goop Health event was held last weekend. The reset theme really resonated with me.


Three things to do now to reset your post Covid life


1/ Take time to reflect


GP interviewed Gabrielle Union for insights on the rebirth she experienced after tragic events. She used humor to mask the pain of some of her life stories. Each story explained how she peeled the layers back to reveal more of her authentic self and why perfectionism didn’t save her from the challenges of life. 


Even if you emerge unscathed from Covid, your life has likely changed and evolved in ways that you did’t expect. Is your post Covid life an opportunity for a rebirth?


2/ Declutter your home


Spring is always a good time for a decluttering and cleaning project because it helps create the mental space for a new season. Amy Chinitz provided a refresher on the basics of Marie Kondo’s home detox process.


If your closet is feeling like a time capsule that is weighing you down rather than adding joy to your life, it’s time to decluter. Touch each item, give thanks to the items that no longer spark joy, consign and/or donate unwanted items and organize the rest.


Keep in mind the nautical theme, forgiving bottoms, investment tops and jewelry to play up your neckline for Zoom meetings as you edit and refresh your spring and summer wardrobe.


3/ Sharpen your entertaining skills


The Goop food director introduced us to Dry Farm Wines and wonderful food pairings to inspire our summer entertaining menus.


The short story is you should match with more of the same notes/flavors or do the opposite for balance. For instance:


1/ Acidic wines [ie sparkling] should be paired with either acidic or rich creamy foods.

2/ Fruity wines [ie rose] should be paired with either fruity or earthy foods.

3/ Salty wines [ie crisp whites] should be paired with either salty or mild foods.

4/ Earthy wines [ie red wines] should be paired with either earthy or bright foods.


Watch for the recipies this summer. Some are so simple yet may surprise you. For example: charred sweet potato tocos with pickled red onion, greek yogurt and cilantro for a delicious plant based meal paired with red wine.
