Whether you’re working from home or not, these times have created the potential for greater social isolation and stress.
It can be difficult to know what to do or what resources are available to support you when you feel your days are packed with meetings, overflowing to- do lists, and responsibilities to yourself and others.
We know that demands on your time aren’t changing, they are just different in terms of how you communicate, connect, and deliver results.
Work can be stressful. Whether it is virtual meeting overload, constant interruptions, or uncertainty about the future, elevated levels of stress negatively impact mental health.
According to a report by Statistics Canada, the biggest source of stress of Canadians by far was work with a significant 62 per cent. Following that was finances and time at 12 per cent, which can both often relate to the workplace.
A bit of stress can be helpful, but too much or chronic stress can be harmful both emotionally and physically.
That’s why we’ve designed our Remote Care Wellness Toolkit. We’ve compiled tips for managing stress through breathing techniques, mindfulness, proper sleep hygiene, and healthy recipes.
Additionally, we’ve included several free Telehealth and online services so your employees can consult with mental health professionals in an accessible way.
Currently, this toolkit is available exclusively to our clients and is accessible in two specific formats:
1) Stand-alone resources are downloadable by specific topic. As an example, let’s say that you’d like to promote better sleep hygiene. Just search in the toolkit’s table of contents and download the link with the resources specific to Better Sleep Hygiene Tips. It’s that simple.
2) A fillable PDF with all the contents of the toolkit captured in one document that’s easy to download or that we email directly to you.
If this virtual toolkit is something that you believe would be a helpful resource for you and your employees, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s work together and create solutions that work best for you and your organization.
