Over the past few months we have all completely changed the way we live and work. We have learned to live with the daily struggles that comes with working at home and being confined in our homes. However, something amazing has come out of this. We stopped our daily lives for a moment. We paused the stress, if only for a moment. There was a bit more extra time in the day, a few extra moments that we wouldn’t have had if we had to travel to work for example. This has given us a second to realise how many stress factors we face every day and how a stressful environment can affect our mental well being.
Most of us have to come to the realization during these last tough few months that we have been taking our mental health for granted and have lost the connection between our body and mind. All those times where we have been over stressed, over worked and mentally drained without the time to off load these feelings and do something that benefits our mental health.
