How to Manage Stress in the New Normal

November 18, 2020  ·  Carl Flowers

You wake up to a seemingly endless battle every day: a battle to stay safe and healthy, a battle to balance work with life, a battle to work remotely, or to work in a socially distant office.

You work long hours and your list of things to get done keeps getting longer and longer. Most work hard to stay the course, but it is almost impossible not to focus on the uncertain future. This has left many scared, frustrated, and more stressed than ever before.

Stress takes a toll on individuals. It impacts mental health, physical health, and working capacity, which ultimately diminishes corporate performance. With an ever-changing climate, the "new normal" has emerged, and adapting is pivotal.

At times it might seem impossible, but in fact, it is very realistic for people to learn the resilience needed to navigate the current environment. When handled correctly, stress can have a positive impact on reaching full potential.
