In this episode, Mark Hannaford chats to Jason ‘Foxy’ Fox, former Royal Marine Commando and Special Forces Sergeant turned explorer, author and TV star.
They discuss how Jason is handling lockdown and how he’s channeling lessons from his military days to cope with isolation. Jason also talks about the importance of acknowledging your limit of control and taking each day as it comes.
Jason’s top tip?
- Be more like a toddler!
- Spend time in the present and live in the metre square around you.
- Don’t worry about what hasn’t happened yet.
- Remain flexible and learn to roll with the punches.
Jason also considers his hopes for a post COVID world, from a sustained emphasis on hygiene to recognising the importance of self-care, as well as a more efficient and environmentally-friendly society.
