Thriving in the #newnormal - Video chat 6 (A psychologist's perspective)
I was happy to have my good friend, mentor and supervisor Caroline Jannes to chat and share her tips on maintaining mental fitness during the lockdown period. Caroline is a clinical psychologist as well as a sports psychologist. As always I found her perspectives and insights very enlightening.
Here are a few key takeaways:
Accept you will have grumpy days
Plan how to bounce back from them
Ask for help when you need it
Solidarity is becoming very important, how can we support each other?
As the lockdown continues we will be faced with different #newnormals
Take steps now to make the mental shift to adapt to the #newnormals & post lockdown world
A lot can be learned from the medical profession on stress management, decision-making, recovery, communication and teamwork
There is already a tipping point, with people suffering from psychological pain
Psychological support will be essential
Physical activity is also essential for maintaining mental fitness
Her message to the world "All for one and one for all"
