The way we work is turning into two different routes. Either to continue to work from home, or a return to work. In both cases you want to be safe.
I’d like to share a couple of resources.
The first being produced by my University with a focus on your well-being. It’s evidence based and developed by academics working in the Department of Organisational Psychology.
I particular like the way it explains how to build your IGLOo for managing mental health while working during Covid-19 and the ABCs of Psychological Needs
- A – Autonomy: Have a go at writing a list of what you can and can’t control at the moment – and consciously let go of the things that you can’t. Of those you can do, what can you put in place to enhance and embed these more strongly into your daily life?
- B – Belonging: What sources of emotional support are you finding helpful at the moment. Can you do more to increase your levels of social connection? Is there anything you need in terms of informational support? Who in your network could signpost you to these resources?
- C – Competence: What can you do to increase those feelings of accomplishment in your daily life?
You can access it here:
