While many jobs and workplaces have had to make Covid-19 appropriate changes to their workforce. None have changed quite as much as the healthcare industry. With increased focus on patient health, implementation of dozens of new safety precautions, and a huge increase in work demands, it can be extremely hard to keep up with and maintain good personal mental health. That’s why we’ve compiled a few ways you can give yourself a mental health check in order to keep you focused and feeling less overwhelmed.

Deep Breaths: While it may be easier said than done, try to find about 10 minutes in your day or when you’re starting to feel overwhelmed and just take a few deep breaths to clear your head. Sometimes just focusing back on ourselves and taking a moment to clear our minds can drastically change the way our day is going. If you have the ability, try taking a quick break out to your car and just sit and breathe.

Time to Yourself: On your days off, try to prioritize yourself. Take the day to do something you love and leave your phone in your pocket so you have less distractions while doing so. Whether it’s a good yoga class, a hike, or just staying home and watching your favorite streaming service, take the day and relax while doing something mindless, if that’s what you like.

Be Mindful Of Your Basic Needs: 4 words: hydration, rest, nutrition, exercise. When feeling so busy and overwhelmed it can be difficult to remember to take care of your own body. You may often find yourself wondering when your last meal was, but knowing you don’t have time for one right now, but try to be more mindful of giving yourself the nutrients you need to move forward. Especially when you’re running a mile a minute, maybe literally, please remember to drink water so that your body runs at its peak performance to keep you going. On your days off, or hours away from home try to remember to get enough rest, try not to think too hard about things going on at work as they’ll be there for you the next day. Getting a full night of restful sleep can mentally prepare you to tackle almost anything the next day. And as a way to keep your body running smoothly while undergoing a lot of stress, try using exercise as an outlet. This can ease your mind and tension, while keeping you in shape and healthy.

Talk to Someone:  Whether it be a family member, friend, or a professional, try to talk to someone about your current situation. Oftentimes talking about things out loud will allow you to letgo and not worry so much about them. At the end of the day we are all humans and make mistakes, but being able to talk about them will take focus off of them and ease your worry. You don’t even have to talk about work stress, but just having a human connection with someone you may not be able to see can really be grounding and bring you back to reality.

While those in the healthcare industry are working extremely hard to keep us safe, we hope our healthcare friends utilize the tips and tricks to stay calm and try not to feel so overwhelmed.We give major kudos to our friends in the healthcare industry and know that we truly could not be making it through the pandemic or life without you.

While working from home may seem like a dream; you get to stay in cozy clothes, brew at-home fresh coffee, hang out with your pets, and just be in your own space, it can become easier to experience burn out.

According to Megan Brenun, with Gallup News, 62% of employed Americans said they were working from home from the end of March to the beginning of April, an increase of 39% from just a few short weeks before. That is a lot more people adjusting to a new way of working in such a short period and what used to be a benefit has now become survival.

Working from home means our normal 9-5 routines are now shifted and we are mixing in house chores with job tasks leading to confusion between personal time and work time. Because of this, more of those that are working from home are taking fewer days off and not planning time to be away from work. And while not having to commute and being able to wear sweatpants all day seems like a dream, taking a break from your emails and your computer is just as important.

So how do you stay on task with so many things going on around you? Schedule and Prioritize. Even though you’re home and it’s easy to wake up late and just roll out of bed onto your computer or phone, it’s good to keep your normal routine as if you were going into the office, taking a morning shower, brewing the coffee, watching the news, and get dressed for a day in the office before you head to your work from home station. This will help you stick to your normal day-to-day routine and set you up for a more focused day. Additionally, working within your normal 9-5 office hours will help you disconnect work from home leisure thus giving you back more time to relax and work while you’re scheduled.

In addition to scheduling your day as normal, it is also helpful to dress for success. In this study, titled “The Cognitive Consequences of Formal Clothing,” research showed that wearing formal clothing increases productivity and changes how we perceive the day ahead. So, whether you have a Zoom call or not, it’s a smart idea to increase your productivity and focus by dressing in your usual office wear.

Arguably, one of the most important parts about working in the office that has been removed is social interaction and accountability from coworkers. Not only to keep up with the workplace gossip and client notes but also to hold each other accountable for your work and the feeling of having a supportive environment. It’s important to have people you see regularly to keep you feeling supported in work and to be able to read how you may be feeling before burn out. But since we are at home and lacking this social interaction it’s more important than ever to become self-aware. If you start to feel yourself becoming burnt out, consider speaking with your manager/boss about ways you can become recommitted to your position, or consider a fun video chat with coworkers to catch up on some things outside of work. Additionally, everyday stress relievers such as taking a walk, practicing deep breathing exercises, and meditation are always helpful to get you back on track.

During these times, it is also just as important to check in on your coworkers as they are going through the same thing and, everyone handles these situations differently.
