Social distancing, working from home, and the overall stress of the pandemic can take a toll on your mental health. While everyone may be working through similar circumstances, our experiences and journeys are different. Acknowledging and understanding these differences is crucial to everyone’s well-being.
Here are a few ways employees can support each other:
- Check–in with each other regularly.
- Have a conversation about something other than work.
- Lead by example. Be vulnerable about your experiences, and your co-workers may be willing to share more.
We conducted a poll on social media and asked people to tell us what they are doing during the pandemic to help with their mental health. Here are the top answers:
- Exercising daily
- Reaching out to loved ones
- Loving on our fur babies
Remember, as everyone navigates through the pandemic, experiences will vary. But creating a welcoming and honest work environment will help us and our colleagues to prioritize and understand our mental health.
