Our recent study (in partnership with Huawei AppGallery and Headspace) identified that 65% of people in the UK have felt more stressed than ever before since the COVID-19 restrictions began in March 2020. The data, gathered from 2000 British adults gave us a good insight into how stress, anxiety and the restrictions on our daily lives have negatively affected the mental health of the nation.
The restrictions are gradually easing up and many of us cannot wait to go back to some kind of normality. Even if social distancing still applies, we will finally be able to see friends and family, get back to our leisure activities and return to our workplaces. However, many are dreading the return to normality, having been scarred by the consequences of the pandemic and restrictions.
Undoubtedly, what we have experienced as a global society, has had a deep impact on our mental health and wellbeing. The increase in social isolation, growing individualism, loss of the sense of community, uncertainty, and overall sense of loss of control are just some of the consequences of this experience. We still don’t know what exactly the long term effects will be and therefore we need to equip ourselves to adapt to unexpected future challenges by looking after ourselves and our wellbeing, and building our personal resilience.
It is inevitable you will face adversity in your lifetime. Being human comes with its challenges, and suffering is one thing that we all have in common. Every day we have to navigate the ups and downs, however, if we are healthy and resilient we will be better equipped to deal with whatever life throws at us.
One thing is for certain is that we all need help, we all need a support network that we can rely on. Now more than ever, developing relationships and making new connections is crucial, however, terrifying this may seem. We need to find unity and a sense of community. To come together and support each other, be kind, show compassion and understand that recent events have impacted each one of us differently.
Our vision is to support individuals and organisations to build their resilience and help them transition back to a more normal, natural way of life following the ending of the restrictions. All of the tips, tools, and techniques on how to combat stress and start looking after your wellbeing have been designed to empower and inspire you. We also aim to equip managers and leaders to support their employees and focus on aligning the People, Culture and Wellbeing Strategy to the key organisational objectives.
