COVID-19....there is no 'right' way to do this.

Updated: Jun 26, 2020

Many of us are transitioning in one way or another in our careers right now - there will be those transitioning onto a furlough arrangement, those who find themselves out of work or working reduced hours, those who find themselves transitioning into a different role. Maybe they have extra time on their hands.

There will also be those ‘holding the fort’, working increased hours, in challenging environments under intense pressure. Those taking on other people’s roles whilst still juggling family life, feeling that any precious moments they once had have been stolen away.

All of these situations are going to bring up feelings of worry and stress, fear of the unknown and questions of ‘what next?’. Anxiety at the lack of control will be overwhelming lots of people right now. Many of us flip from being immensely grateful for our health and well-being to worrying where next month’s salary will come from. This is completely natural given the shifting world around us.

When we transition into anything new, it takes time to adjust and get comfortable. It also requires a deep level of kindness and an ability to demonstrate patience with ourselves.

Be kind, be patient, know you can not get this 'wrong'.
