When a widespread difficulty like the coronavirus pandemic grows, it becomes important to draw on our inner strength. During this phase of the C19 outbreak measures, you and your loved ones are being asked to make significant changes to your lives. This may have an impact on your mental wellbeing.
Working or being shut-down at home can be stressful, especially for extended periods. Together with the news that the outlook is likely to get worse before it gets better, the current conditions for all of us are unprecedented. We are all likely to be feeling anxious, stressed and worried in the face of uncertainty. According to the WHO, managing stress and psychosocial wellbeing is as important as managing physical health during this time.
Good mental resilience is essential for you to adapt to new daily routines, such as remote learning or working from home where the expectations are the same, but the environment and structure is not. To strengthen your mental resilience, start looking after your cognitive fitness, which is linked to your key abilities to concentrate, solve problems, make good decisions, self-control and perform effectively. This can be nurtured through a healthy lifestyle and targeted training. Learning is about expanding our horizon of possibilities, so we can open windows where before we only saw closed doors.
Watch the video below to see how developing your cognitive fitness will strengthen your mental resilience.
NHS approved daily 15-minute active meditation.
The MyCognition platform improves mental resilience by monitoring and strengthening cognitive fitness using the clinically validated MyCQ assessment and AquaSnap training game. It’s like having a personal trainer for the brain and provides a 15-minute active daily meditation. This makes you less stressed and less anxious while also enabling you to perform at your best, both mentally and physically, building the mental strength and flexibility you need to adapt new habits.
Aware of the importance of needing good mental resilience during a difficult period like this, we are offering a special edition of our Healthy Habits behavioural change programme.
