Growth Mindset for Coronavirus: the Psychology of Mental Health to Find Opportunity in the Crisis and Cope with the Stress and Anxiety of Quarantine and Social Distancing

++++++NOTE: This course was recorded and published in the Spring of 2020 at the beginning of the Corona Virus Pandemic. The content about coping with grief applies more broadly to all areas of life, including many people's experience of coping with the lasting effects of the pandemic today.++++++

The goal of this course is to help you maintain mental health and psychological wellbeing during isolation, quarantine, stress and anxiety due to Covid-19 (Coronavirus), as well as make good use of your time at home, including doing things that help you learn, grow, and thrive.

When home-bound and isolated during Covid-19 quarantine and social distancing, it can be easy to:

  • Become overwhelmed with worry and fear

  • Feel helpless due to disruptive life changes outside of your control

  • Fill your free time with meaningless, mindless distractions

  • Have your mental health and physical health deteriorate

But, it doesn't have to be this way! Not only can you thrive through this Covid-19 (Coronavirus) experience by learning how to feel good, or at least better, no matter what is going on around you (mental health), you can also see this as an opportunity: an unintended sabbatical (growth mindset).

In the past 6 years we have spent almost a year home-bound due to a chronic illness – twice – so we know first-hand what it’s like to cope with the stress, fear, anxiety and disruption of being quarantined. More importantly, we have learned how to thrive through it, instead of getting dragged down by restlessness, despair and grief.

In fact, our biggest challenges in life turned out to be life’s greatest blessing.

The growth we experienced and the lessons we learned, both personally and with our business, have completely transformed our lives.

In those moments when we felt like we had no control over our circumstances, we reminded ourselves that we CAN control:

  • What we focus on

  • How we feel

  • How we react

You see, for over a decade we have been teaching and coaching about:

  • The psychology of the mind

  • Mental health for anxiety & stress

  • How to develop a growth mindset

So, we had an opportunity to practice what we preach in a very real way.

We want to share with you everything we learned the hard way about how to develop positive mental health, stay optimistic and not get lost in a downward spiral of worry, fear and anxiety.

We want to share with you how make the most out of isolation and limitation due to Covid-19 (Coronavirus) by embracing a growth mindset and using your time to do things that feed you and help you grow.

We want to share with you the exact strategies we used to come out on the other side of limitation, disruption and isolation stronger and happier and more focused than ever before.

We want to help you create a vision for your future and a growth mindset so you feel empowered as you journey into the unknown.

When we found ourselves home-bound we were unable to:

  • Work outside of the home

  • Visit with family and friends

  • Do any of the things we love to do

We made a DECISION to look at our quarantine as a sabbatical—an opportunity to grow.

And we welcome you to join us on this quest to make the best out of this situation.

In this course, you will:

  • Develop a growth mindset and identify areas in which you can learn and grow

  • Explore ways you can learn anything from home, in your pajamas

  • Learn strategies for coping with boredom

  • Making good use of your time and see this as an opportunity

  • Determine healthy distractions and avoiding unhealthy time-wasting distractions

  • Create a vision for your life and find purpose in this experience

  • Set meaningful goals, complete with a ta-da list and an actionable strategy

  • Learn the psychology of positive mental health

  • Learn practical tools for coping with stress and anxiety

  • Explore ways to get your social needs met during social distancing

  • Learn how to minimize worry and fearful thinking

  • Know how to find hope, and feeling better—even happy—through it all

Joeel and Natalie Rivera

We are Joeel and Natalie Rivera—your soon-to-be coach trainers! (Yes, we’re married AND work together… 24 hours a day… and we LOVE IT!) Below we’ll tell you our story, briefly… the REAL story. The one that wasn’t always easy but that lead us PERFECTLY to this place of living out our life’s purpose and creating the thriving business (and the FREEDOM that comes with it) that we always wanted! 

We seek to ignite a revolution of personal freedom through entrepreneurship, empowering each individual to reach their potential and fulfill their life’s purpose.

 We are freedom junkies and serial entrepreneurs who empower INDIEpreneurs to create a purpose-driven business and fulfill their life’s purpose. We specialize in teaching people how to use their gifts to make money teaching what they know and love through life coaching and online courses. Joeel has a Master’s Degree in Counseling and Education and is currently completing his dissertation for his Ph.D. in Psychology, with an emphasis on happiness. 


In 2014, when we converted our print magazine into digital format, we found we could reach an exponential, worldwide market at a fraction of the time and cost. This inspire us to officially become INFOpreneurs. Then, in 2016 we received a proverbial “kick in the pants” to go “all-in” when Joeel fell ill after traveling overseas. Unable to leave the house, they continued to teach and empower others by turning their in-person workshops, speeches and coach training programs into online courses.
