Pandemic Survival Guide: How To Deal When Work Is Grinding You Into Dust


When work is overwhelming, it's tempting to berate yourself for not getting more done when you're off the clock. But according to Business Insider, psychotherapist Amy Morin says for many people, the secret to happiness isn't doing more--it's simplifying, and doing less. To give yourself the rest and peace you need to deal with a demanding job, start by decluttering your calendar, your obligations, and your environment. Cease unnecessary activities that sap your physical or emotional strength. Declutter your home so it's easy to find things, and fix or replace what's broken. Set up automatic habits that support you in health and reduce decision fatigue. Finally, eliminate everything in your environment that tempts you in ways you don't want to be tempted!

  • Pandemic Survival Guide: Tips For Keeping Yourself Mentally Healthy

    Comparing April 2019 to 2020, research published in The Lancet says the prevalence of 'clinically significant' levels of mental distress has risen from 18.9% to 27.3%. According to HuffPost, increases were greatest among 18- to 34-year-olds, women, and people living with young children. To preserve and protect your mental health, start by rethinking your social circles. Avoid critics, naysayers, pot-stirrers, and anyone else who brings you down. Reach out to friends and loved ones who truly lift you up. If you can't stand one more Zoom call, send a card. Stay active in mind and body. Exercise, learn something new, set goals, and structure your day so you have a sense of accomplishment. Finally, try to be grateful for your blessings. And at the same time, don't be afraid to reach out for help from professionals.
