How are you remaining positive and mentally strong through COVID?

1) Exercise - It’s great for us physically, but once you become consistent, it really helps build a “can do” mindset. Totally recommend doing something light in the morning just to get your blood pumping. (e.g. 5-10 push ups)

2) Count your blessings. I have a jar full of paper slips. Each one has the name of a person I’m grateful for or something I’m thankful for (e.g. I never have to worry about where my next meal comes from).

On my tougher days, I pull a few slips at random to remind myself of all the existing good in my life.

My second suggestion is on the cornier side, but I’ve found this helpful.

Keep your head up OP!

Hi friends - need a suggestion. My mother got critically ill due to Covid and has been in the hospital in India for over a month with added complications. Hospital charges are through the roof and it is a long road ahead of us. Are there financial aids, options available to explore to meet the expenses? We are salaried people and parents are retired. We are exploring loan options and wanted to check with this group for other creative ways to manage. Thanks a lot for the help!

I have an employee who has been out on Mat leave since beginning of October. She is scheduled to come back beginning of Jan. Today I received an email from our employee asking if she can work the following schedule for the month of Jan: two week 3 days on, two off and then another two 2 days on, 3 off. This is due to COVID and not wanting to put the child in daycare (which I totally get). Not being in a situation like this before, how do I respond?

Hey everyone! I need some advice. I’ve accepted an offer for a new job, but I’m in a bit of a rush to get out of the position I’m working right now. I start the new job July 18. My job now doesn’t care about their employees, and it’s a health risk for my family and I due to unsafe COVID policies (i.e. forcing you to come in even if you’re sick, making you use PTO for COVID even if working from home, etc). Is there anything short term I can do until July? Or should I stay until then?
