Fear, the unknown, and the unpredictable abound right now as the lockdown, social distancing and search for a cure for COVID-19 appears to be ongoing. The above mix of events has created erratic state of affairs that can accentuate the personal and professional stress level of people, who already are experiencing anxiety about health and the overall well-being of their families as well as concerns about work, finances, trust, low morale and feelings of isolation.
With most employees now working from home with an indefinite timeline of when they’ll be returning to the office, many questions arise around how to be productive and to ensure mental well-being. Even for the most highly motivated employee, moving abruptly from a social office environment into an unfamiliar remote environment can cause stress and anxiety. It’s also important to not lose sight of the fact that human beings are social creatures who typically thrive in a group environment. Working remotely has created a new appreciation of the significance of the office as a collocated workspace with the physical presence of colleagues, where facial expressions, body language and face-to-face interactions subtly boost mental health.
In this session, we are going to suggest strategies to help alleviate the stigma associated with these unprecedented mental health challenges and how to boost your emotional status.
