How is the current coronavirus pandemic affecting you?

Are you working from home more?

Seeing people less in person, but more online?  Finding it hard to differentiate between work and non-work hours?  Struggling to think how or when this may end?

You aren’t alone in any of this.  I’m at home with my wife and 3 of our (young adult) children, and at times it gets hard for all of us.

The good news is there are things you can do to help you cope with all the questions above!

Recently I interviewed mental health specialist Melissa Doman on how to find balance during Covid-19 - and the results may surprise you.

Click to watch the interview - it’s in 3 short chunks so you can even use it to break up your day if you want to.

And there’s a handy summary of it on our coronavirus resource centre - you can download that here.

If you have other techniques you’re using to help you find balance in this strange situation, please let me know.  I’d love to hear from you.
