The circuit breaker measures were introduced for about a month now, with many people working from home. Students are attending lessons from home as well. Telecommuting and / or studying from home, can lead to longer working hours with little breaks. Social isolation may set in, especially when there is a lack of support from bosses, teachers and / or organisations. Overworking and isolation may cause increased stress, which could lead to eventual burnout.
The constant fear of having work accumulates, disappointing the expectations of self and others, and failing to meet deadlines may lead to various mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. Common physical symptoms of burnout include poor weight gain / loss and digestion issues.
In this webinar, participants will learn the following:
- The importance of managing stress & burnout
- How to manage stress & burnout during this period
- How can counselling help you and your loved ones
- How to seek professional help
