All of us want to be happy, engaged and satisfied and yet, when a massive external shift hits us hard, like the 2020 pandemic these emotional states are at risk. We are in a historical moment of change and despite feeling overwhelmed, there is an opportunity for growth. Chronic stress and fear are wearing us out, but by practicing psychological fitness, we may just be able to reset. The added benefit to developing these skills now means that we carry them into our post-Covid-19 reality – making us well-prepared to handle future stress.

Since March 2020, many of us have been operating in crisis mode; quick pivots, learning new policies and processes on the fly while navigating a growing societal unrest.
