This Episode: Long-term Wellbeing Strategies As We Return To The Workplace

This week, Lucinda talks about the long-term wellbeing strategies that can aid us in our quest to re-establish the workplace in the aftermath of the COVID lockdown, and how we can make the most of self-care in order to increase our resilience.


  • There is a very real sense that an epidemic of burnout is on the horizon. Holding our lives and our composure together over the past 12 months has been incredibly difficult.
  • Self-care, and the practice of treating ourselves kindly, is the best way in which we can enhance our resilience and embed our long-term wellbeing.
  • If we are depleted in terms of resilience, then we are less likely to be able to “bounce back”. Prevention is better than a cure when it comes to mental health.
  • We must practice being happy in the present. We can sometimes lose the value of the moment by focussing too far upon the goals of the future.
