Gwyneth Paltrow has positioned herself as a health and wellness guru for years now, so it makes sense that she partnered with Shape magazine to talk about staying healthy during this pandemic. She also had a conversation with California’s Surgeon General and talked about COVID-19 and the stress the pandemic has caused for everyone. The GOOP creator said that the quarantine life has actually been more relaxing for her aside from the natural stress and panic brought on by it, saying:
“Now I feel different, letting my body go to sleep and wake up in its natural rhythm, having my kids around all the time, eating meals together and having meaningful conversations. We linger at the table; our dinners are an hour and a half long. My heart feels fuller, and my mind feels calmer in that respect.”
The conversation she had with the Surgeon General came with good timing and lines up with the current Black Lives Matter movement, because California’s Surgeon General is a black girl.
"When I saw that Dr. Burke Harris was a female African American M.D. and had spent her career helping children who’d grown up in adverse childhoods in disenfranchised neighborhoods, I watched her TED Talk. And I sort of fell in love with her.”
