Second edition of The Recovery Sessions, a series of coaching sessions for people who are facing pandemic-related challenges. For Maryam Mahdavi, a first-year psychology and music student at McGill, COVID crushed her social life and began a sedentary lifestyle with too many trips to the fridge driven by loneliness and boredom. She’s paired with Dr. Kwadwo Kyeremanteng, an Ottawa ICU physician and healthy living advocate. Kwadwo challenged Maryam to walk to and from campus. Just doing that made her feel better about herself. It also helped change her sleep and eating habits. But her ultimate goal was to get past her loneliness brought on by pandemic isolation and start meeting fellow students on campus.
