How do you stay calm, keep your mind clear, and build resilience in the face of crisis?
The rapid spread of COVID-19 has disrupted our lives in unexpected ways. Many of us are now working from home, isolated from our team and facing uncertain times ahead. Combined with the onslaught of alarming headlines every day, the situation is taking a toll on our mental wellbeing.
Last week, we held a digital fireside chat with organisational psychologist and mental health at work specialist, Melissa Doman, M.A., to talk about the importance of maintaining good mental health hygiene and techniques to cope with stress, anxiety, and isolation.
Our aim was to share practical advice on developing positive habits and building resilience in these difficult times. Here I'd like to share some of the key insights from my conversation with Melissa.
