De-stress for Success: The New Normal
We are in a period of significant change in how we work, including working from home and the increased use of video conferencing technology for communication. The primary catalyst for this "new normal" in our working environment is COVID-19). Current research on our stress and mental health has highlighted how these stresses have affected our lives, including:
- Lack of sleep
- Decreasing motivation
- Declining job performance
In this webinar, we examine current research to understand the impact of our "new normal" on our stress and mental health. We will then explore research-based tools that can help us de-stress for success.
