Wellbeing: How to take control of anxiety & stress.

Is the current pandemic having an impact on your mental wellbeing? Do you feel anxious, stressed, worried, bored, lonely or frustrated?

Feeling like this is completely normal and is important to remember it’s ok not to be ok. It is key to remember that everyone reacts and feels differently – for most of us these difficult feelings will pass.

To help us manage with how we feel in times of uncertainty there are simple things we can do to take care of our mental health and wellbeing. Doing so will help us think clearly and make sure we can look after ourselves and those close to us.

We have pulled together a few tips that can help improve your mental health and wellbeing if you are worried about the coronavirus outbreak.

🌱 Do what makes you happy – yoga, walking, socialising, running, the gym. Just make time for you.

🌱 Talk – sharing your thoughts and frustrations can help reduce anxiety.

🌱 Budget- money worries cause stress. Feel in control by finding out your redundancy pay, budgeting your spending & looking for help through job seekers allowance or universal credit.

🌱 New job- think of the search as an opportunity. To change your career or find somewhere that you’ll love to work.

🌱 Know your rights – it helps diminish anxiety & makes you feel prepared (we can help with that).

🌱 Eating habits – what we eat impacts how we feel. Fresh fruit, veg, less process food & refined sugar can all help improve our mental wellbeing.

🌱 Be kind to yourself- finding a job in the pandemic may be trickier than usual but it will happen. Focus on your strengths & achievements & know that this difficult time won’t last forever.

🌱 Speak to your employer as they may offer additional methods of support internally.


Focus on what you can control. You cannot calm a storm but you can calm yourself until it passes.

Investing in employee wellbeing has been scientifically proven to lower absenteeism, improve morale and productivity, increase staff retention rates and provide an overall happier place to work.
