We've made it through lockdown and life is slowly returning to our new normal at Alert Level 1. However, it is still a strange time as we adapt again to another environment and set of circumstances. Everyone still has different challenges to overcome and likely to be feeling a range of emotions.
Be kind, be patient and stay connected.
It’s very important we continue to keep in touch and look after each other’s and our own mental health and well being.
The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand is promoting The Five Ways to Wellbeing:
- Take Notice
- Keep Learning
- Be Active
Incorporating these actions into daily life at work and at home, should help promote a sense of wellbeing.
Wellbeing professionals also recommend ensuring our workplaces are mentally resilient.
The key messages as we make this transition are:
- Keep an eye on each other
- Be kind, patient and understanding
- Stay connected
