Working At Home — 11 Practical Tips Mental Fitness With Psychologist Collett Smart

    • Health & Fitness

I read someone’s Facebook post this week which said this isn’t working from home — it's working at home, during a crisis. I think that is an important distinction to make.

So, how do we stay sane and mentally fit while working at home during a global crisis — the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic? You may find yourself even more isolated than you have ever felt before or perhaps you have kids crawling up on your lap or teens constantly rummaging in your drawers while you’re on a Zoom meeting?

The foundation for getting through this is to remind yourself this will pass — it is not permanent, there will be an end to this! — and be kind to yourself and family when people have days when they’re a little frayed.
