The coronavirus pandemic has brought about immense changes to our country and our workplaces.
Job security, our day-to-day role, weekly meetings and Friday night work drinks have been replaced by continued uncertainty, virtual calls, and feelings of isolation and loneliness. During this time, more people are finding themselves struggling with mental health issues (both pre-existing and new) as a result of increased depression, anxiety and other mental differences.
In these unprecedented times, mental wellbeing is more important than ever before. We take a look at how COVID-19 is affecting employees worldwide, and share some advice to help you with mental balance and wellness, both personally and professionally.
According to a study by The Guardian, 53% of Aussies are anxious about the threat of coronavirus — a 14-point jump on the week before. What’s more, 25% say they are worried about losing their job.
The uncertainty of job stability, coupled with the invisible, yet ever-present, COVID-19 threat means we are collectively feeling higher levels of stress and anxiety like never before.
On top of this, ReachOut says the loneliness and isolation brought on by social distancing and remote working can also leave people at a higher risk of developing mental health problems.
If left unchecked, these feelings could have significant negative impacts on your mental health, and in turn, your physical health.
All of us respond differently to stressful situations, and this is particularly the case when faced with the unknowns and changing challenges of COVID-19. Given the situation, it’s normal to experience some mental health impact — particularly when we’re isolated, working from home, and worried about job security and loved ones.
However, there are some warning signs that might suggest you’re facing depression or anxiety.
If you (or someone you know) is experiencing these signs, it’s time to take a step back, breathe deeply, and place a focus on your mental wellbeing.
If you’re struggling to stay mentally balanced, these resources can lend a helping hand:
Now more than ever, it's important to look after yourself. With the right tools and support systems in place, you’ll be in a better position to navigate any challenges or negative thoughts that arise as a result of COVID-19.
